The Island of MLJET is situated in the far South of Croatia, west from Dubrovnik, Croatia's best known summer resort and one of the favourite destination for luxury motor boat charters or luxury sailing charters in Croatia. A national park of the same name includes a western part of, according to some, the most beautiful island in the Adriatic. The park is characterised by two deep bays which are called lakes due to their very narrow passages to the open sea (Veliko and Malo jezero/ the Great Lake and the Small Lake), and lush and diversified Mediterranean vegetation. National Park Mljet was declared as such in the year 1960, and encompasses the west part of the island of Mljet. The main factors in declaring the island as a national park is the rare and intended coast and the dense flora, specifically the forested area on the south side of the island, which creates two lakes on the island. Although the water is salty, the landscape looks like lakes. They are rich with many sea shells (mussels, oysters etc), and the plankton of the island have been the study of multiple scientific researches.
Of course best way to enjoy the island is chartering a sailboat and sail all the coast. The vegetation on the island especially in the national park is very rich, which gives the island of Mljet the attribute of a "green island". Forests of alp pine trees around the lake are known as one of the most beautiful and untouched of that kind on the Mediterranean. Since when the island was populated with mungo (Mungos mungo), a small creature that ate snakes, there have been no poisonous snakes on the island, and also less wild life. There are also many types of coastal fauna, of which one of the most interesting is the sea bear (Monachus albiventer). The sea bear is protected mammal and a rare seal in the Adriatic Sea. Visiting the National park Mljet is possible after a tour of the sailing area of Dubrovnik, Korcula, Hvar, Brac, Makarska and Pelješac, using the dock at the Pomen port. Guests can enjoy the sea and sun and walk on trails to the tops of Montokuc, where a beautiful view of the entire island can be seen.
