The renowned American magazine Forbes ranked our beautiful island of Mljet among the top 5 undiscovered Mediterranean destinations ideal for “off the beaten path” travellers, bringing its readers a list of fascinating isles perfect for those looking for an escape from the crowds and mass tourism.
The article depicts Mljet as an idyllic paradise for all those looking for either an active vacation swimming, kayaking, and exploring numerous hiking and biking trails in the Mljet National Park or simply enjoying the serene beauty of the sea and nature on its many stunning beaches. On the other hand, all cultural history lovers can explore the tiny town of Polače, one of the oldest settlements on the island, known for its Roman Palace dating all the way back to the Roman Empire.
“Announcements about Croatian destinations in the most popular American media such as Forbes, The New York Times, The Washington Post confirm the reputation of our country as a very desirable tourist destination on the American market,” said the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić.
Alongside Mljet, the list includes the Greek Syros, the Spanish island of Tabarca, the Kerkennah islands off the coast of Tunisia and the island of Kekova in Turkey.
