There are only a few places on the Adriatic coast that have hidden charms such as the Saplunara Cove and the Lagoon Blace at the Island of Mljet. Modernly equipped apartments of Villa Hansal are placed very close to the sandy beach of Saplunara, 39 m above the sea level and 220 m to the longest sandy beach.
The warmth of the sea, the scent of the pines and a song of nightingale, seduce you and take you to the unreal, magic land of the nymph Calypso and Ulysses. It seems here as if the time has stopped since they were here. The beauty of greeness with pearly azure sea, sand and Mediterranean vegetation is all around.
Since 1965. the south-eastern part of the Island of Mljet has been proclaimed as protected important landscape of Saplunara, and it helped to preserve the untouched nature with endemic plants, as well as with autochthonous pine woods. At he beginning of 1960-ies, the north-western part of the Island of Mljet has been proclaimed as the National Park Mljet, with its two salty lakes and Benedictine monastery of St. Mary, placed at the island in a big lake. The entire Island of Mljet, as an unique green oasis in the Adriatic sea, offers to the contemporary nomads from the urban environment, the peace, relaxation, and true rest. At the Blace lagoon, the sympathizers of FKK naturism will also for sure find their place, as well as all other nature lovers.
