After our visit to Blato we make our way into the medieval town of Korcula a less touristy version of Dubrovnik with similarly winding roads. Korcula has numerous bars, shops, restaurants and probably the finest sunsets in the Adriatic. A great opportunity to kick back and relax after a day of cycling.
(Wednesday) Mljet island National Park (approx. 20 km / 12 miles)
Mljet is a Mecca for all adventure travellers. It’s a pristine unspoiled National Park that offers the perfect terrain for biking. The terrain is reminiscent of the Mediterranean with the pined trees that line the trails we’ll be blazing!
On two wheels we’ll discover more of the Island than most people so you’ll have more pictures to show off! We'll circle the salt-water lake, ascend a few hills, and fly down the other sides. Being less populated with tourists, Mljet is more off the beaten track than other places in Croatia. In the evening our boat glides across the sea to the Peljesac peninsula where our trip continues to inspire.

There is a fine selection of great beaches in this area; the town is small so all the awesome nightlife is within easy reach – including a club in a cave!
