Island of Mljet by motor yacht Elite One

Some people say that Homer, while describing the enchanted island of Ogigia, Ulysses and the nymph Calypso, had the island of Mljet in mind. True or not – this island is today certainly a paradise for those who enjoy untouched nature and absolute tranquility. The main attractions of the island are two saltwater lakes completely surrounded by a thick pinewood forest. Enjoy a boat ride on the larger lake and visit the small island of St. Mary with the 12th century Benedictine monastery. There will be plenty of time for swimming, strolling around the lakes or having lunch in one of the charming local restaurants.

Beautiful and breathtaking view! Small Odysseus bar with cold drinks and nice owner is also recommended after visiting the cave :)

The blue color that can be seen when diving inside the cave and looking towards the exit looks unreal. Tip: bring the sunscreen!

Some reviews say not to go in the middle of the day, but I would say DO go in the middle of the day, as the atmosphere down there is better, and it also feels a little safer when busier if you're not the most confident adventurer. Just make sure you've got water resistant sunscreen on. Firstly there is a 20-30 minute walk from the main road, the path starts by a sign opposite from supermarket Tommy. This walk is a bit rocky and at times not obvious where the path is. This could be difficult for those with young children or accessibility issues. Wear sensible shoes. You have to swim into the cave - its approximately a 50m swim from the lowest point of entry to the water. The day I was there, children, and even dogs, were managing it fine. The water wasn't too choppy. There's a secure rope attached to a rock which makes getting out easy. There's also some places to cliff jump - obviously there's some crazy ones like 5m+, 10m+, but there are also some lower ones that are maybe 2m and 3m. I'd recommend jumping in from these, and working your way up to the others! The actual cave itself is relatively unspoiled and rustic. There's not too much to see inside, but it is very beautiful. Also please note there are no toilets down there. I asked someone at the Kalypso bar (small bar set up near the cave) if there was a toilet, and he told me there was the sea and bushes all around. Make of that what you will.

Beautiful cave. It takes 20 min walk from parking near the grocery store.It is best to visit at calm sea and at around 12 h(in summer time) when the sun lights up the entrance and gives it beautiful turquoise color.

If you went to Mljet and haven't been to Odyssey cave, you missed the most beautiful attraction on island. You can visit it by sea or by foot. From main road it is cca 40 walk trough nice and marked path. You will arrive above cave and view is marvelous. From here you can climb down in the cave, which I do not recommend as it is really steeply. Option 2 is walk down to the shore, jump in the water and swim into the cave. We had 1.5m waves so it was kind of scary jumping and swimming but we did it. Exiting water was most problematic as you need to use one rope and climb on the rock while waves throw you around. But it is worth it. One of the most beautiful sights we have seen. Recommendation - have some kind of waterproof camera as pictures from cave out are must have. I had snorkel and sight underwater is breathtaking.
