Long, narrow Mljet is separated from the Pelješac peninsula by the Mljet Channel and covered in ancient forests, which hide many dramatic gorges and chasms now protected by National Park boundaries. Its two lakes, Malo and Veliko are much photographed for their sparking green shades, and because of the Benedictine monastery of Saint Mary which sits on an islet in the larger lake. The lakes are also well set up for watersports.

The island's Saplunara beach is one of the nicest along this stretch of coast.

Sobra, the main port on the island, is connected to Dubrovnik-Gruž and Ston via a car ferry. There is also a ferry between Polače and Trstenik.
