If you are wondering how to reach Mljet the easiest way, you are in the right place. Here you can find information that are needed to get to us quickly and easily. We hope it will be useful!
From Dubrovnik to Mljet
Dubrovnik Airport is the nearest airport to the island of Mljet.
It is located about an hour and 15 minute drive from Prapratno, the nearest point on Croatian mainland from where car ferries depart to Sobra, Mljet several times a day all year round. The ferry ride from Prapratno to Sobra lasts for 45 minutes. To get from the airport to Prapratno ferry port and back, you can hop on the regular bus shuttle service, which is active from April to October or you can hire a rental car, which can be very useful once you arrive on the island.
Timetables for bus shuttle services from Dubrovnik to Prapratno check here: http://bit.ly/bus_Du-Prapratno and ferry timetables check here: http://bit.ly/ferry_Prapratno-Mljet.
Dubrovnik also has its own port - Gruž, from where you can take the catamaran to Sobra or Pomena. Gruž Port, which is also Dubrovnik’s Main Bus Station, is located about 30 to 40 minutes drive from the airport, and the catamaran ride to Mljet lasts about an hour and 20 minutes. This is a great choice for passengers with no cars. More information and timetables for buses and catamaran rides find here: http://bit.ly/bus_airportDu-Gruž, http://bit.ly/catamaran_Du-Mljet.
For one-day trips to Mljet, we recommend the Nona Ana, a passenger boat, which sails from Dubrovnik to Polače every morning and back to Dubrovnik in the afternoons. It sails daily in July and August, and in June and September, it sails on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

From Split to Mljet
One more airport to consider is Split Airport, which is a little bit further from Mljet than Dubrovnik, but the ferry port is located right by the airport and there are convenient ferry rides once per day from April to October via Hvar, Korčula and Mljet. Journey time is 3 hours and 45 minutes. Ferry timetables find here: http://bit.ly/ferry_Split-Mljet.
From Split, you can also take the catamaran, which sails daily (from April to October) and it will take you to Hvar, Makarska, Brač, Korčula, Dubrovnik and Mljet. This catamaran ride is a great choice for island hopping.
