Mljet is one of the most southern Dalmatian Islands; great if you're sailing from Dubrovnik on a one week sail or if sailing from further north near Split then two weeks are ideal.
It's definitely an island well worth heading too. Mljet is the greenest of all the Central Dalmatian Islands and is described as one of the most 'enchanting' in the entire Adriatic.
One of the main features of Mljet is the national park that extends over the western part of the island. Within the national park there are two inland salt lakes - Veliko and Malo Jezero.
Mljet is a favourite amongst crews who are looking for a quiet anchorage, as the island offers beautiful and quiet anchorages along its northern coast, which are secure and sheltered.
Luka Polace is the main harbour or anchorage on Mljet which is towards the west of the island on the north facing coast. Being a 'land locked' bay, Luka Polace is one of the most sheltered anchorages in this area.
The most developed harbour on Mljet is Pomena which lies on the north west edge of the island. It has a large hotel, a couple of restaurants and cafes, and travel agencies where you can organise a trip up to the lakes.
Okuklje has become a very popular anchorage, somewhat to its detriment. A few holiday homes have sprung up in recent years, and also many restaurants line its shores. During high season it can be crowded in the bay, so it may be wise to have a well timed early finish.
