EXPLORE TWO AMAZING ISLANDS: MLJET AND LASTOVO
Half of the island of Mljet is a national park, with the most unusual feature of the island: two inland salt water lakes- Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero -connected to the sea by a narrow canal. Mljet has few residents, no large towns and only one major road. It is believed that St. Paul the Apostle landed on Mljet after a shipwreck on his way to Rome in 61 AD, specifically on the sandy beach of Saplunara. St. Paul first named Saplunara after Latin word “sabulum” that means “sand”. Another famous resident of this small island was Odysseus. His cave is situated under the village of Babino Polje.
A FEW TIPS & DO NOT MISS:
On the island of Mljet, we recommended docking in Pomena bay and a visit to the national park, with its clear lakes, peaceful beaches and picturesque biking trails. The price of a berth usually includes a ticket for the national park.
Name comes from the Italian ‘Meleda’ and latin ‘Melita’
Would you like to sail in harmony with unspoiled nature and in the ambience of traditional architecture? If your answer is yes, then you should not miss Lastovo – an island of dreamlike beauty, where you will enjoy healthy and fresh food from the fields and the crystal-clear sea of the island.
Beside sailing to its pristine bays like Zaklopatica and Skrivena, you can also see the other special tourist attractions of the island are the famous Lastovo chimneys, which were once status symbols of old Lastovo families.
