In the southern part of the island, the sea flows into the island by creating small canyon Veliko jezero, Grand Lake and after a narrow canyon made ​​Malo jezero, Le Petit Lac. However they are salt lakes, these lakes are rich in real lakes varied shellfish (mussels, marine pinner, arches and oysters) and the plankton of these lakes was the subject of numerous scientific works.
In the southern part of Grand Lake is located on the island of Sainte-Marie, with the old Benedictine monastery and a church dating from the 12th century. Today the monastery is the construction of the Renaissance is surrounded by a courtyard. At the southeast corner of the island is built around the defense. All buildings on the island, the church included, protect the islet. Today the monastery is a restaurant.

The port and main anchor of Mljet is luka Polace on the NW coast, a ferry port.
Etirée sur une quarantaine de kilomètres entre Dubrovnik et Korcula, l’île de Mljet s’épanouit en un magnifique parc naturel protégé.

Le Parc national de Mljet est proclamé le Parc national en 1960 et couvre la partie de l’ouest de l’île de Mljet. Les motifs principaux pour proclamer cette île le Parc national sont la côte découpée et la végétation luxuriante des forêts. De la partie du sud de l’île, la mer se jette dans l’île par le petit canyon en créant Veliko jezero, Le Grand Lac et après par un canyon plus étroit fait Malo jezero, Le Petit Lac. Cependant ce sont des lacs salés, ces lacs sont des vrais lacs riches en coquillages variés (moules, pinnes marines, arches et huîtres) et le plancton de ces lacs fut l’objet de nombreux œuvres scientifiques.

Dans la partie du sud du Grand Lac est située l’îlot de Sainte-Marie, avec le vieux monastère bénédictin et une église datant du 12e siècle. Aujourd’hui le monastère est la construction de la Renaissance qui est entourée d’une cour. Au coin sud-est de l’îlot est construite la tour de défense. Toutes les constructions sur l’îlot, l’église incluse, protègent l’îlot. Aujourd’hui dans le monastère vous trouverez un restaurant.

La végétation sur l’île, surtout celle du Parc national est très luxuriante et pour cette végétation, cette île est surnommée “l’île verte“.

La côte S ne doit pas être approchée de trop près et n'a pas de bons mouillages.
Le port et mouillage principal de Mljet est luka Polace, sur la côte NW, qui est un port de Ferry.
