Fodor's Expert Review Nacionalni Park Mljeta
Within the densely forested park lie two interconnected saltwater lakes—Malo Jezero (Little Lake) and Veliko Jezero (Big Lake)—ideal for swimming from spring to autumn. Boats run to the charming 12th-century Benedictine monastery on Otočić Svete Marije (St. Mary's Islet), in the middle of Veliko Jezero (30 Kn return); or you can rent a little blue kayak from Mali Most (80 Kn per hour), the bridge between the two lakes, and paddle out there. A series of footpaths and bike paths traverse the park; mountain bikes are also available for hire at Mali Most and at Hotel Odisej in Pomena. A local bus runs from the port of Sobra to the national park at the west end of the island. If you arrive on Mljet through Polače, you are within walking distance of the park. Upon arrival, pay the entrance fee at one of several wooden kiosks (if you stay overnight, this fee is included in the price of your accommodation).
