Introducing holidays to Mlini
Head to Mlini, on the beautiful Dalmatian Coast, for sun, sea and history – all within a stone’s throw of vibrant Dubrovnik. This Croatian gem is a small beach resort with a pretty harbour, served by a freshwater spring that runs down from the mountains to the sea. Surrounded by fragrant pine and cypress trees, Mlini is an ideal destination for a relaxing holiday by the ocean or a tranquil base outside of Dubrovnik. The town has a rich culture, with some interesting sightseeing on offer dating back to ancient Greek and Roman times. While Mlini is not the place to come for all-night partying, there are a small number of friendly cafés and bars in the town and some great restaurants along the seafront promenade that serve up traditional local dishes. What Mlini does have in spades are beautiful beaches, sunshine, and a laid-back atmosphere - perfect for unwinding and recharging those batteries!

Life’s a beach
Mlini is home to one of the most beautiful beaches along the Dalmatian Coast. The striking green Mediterranean waters break onto smooth pebbly shores (no need to endure sand in awkward places here!) and you can enjoy breathtaking views out to the sea and the group of islands that lies just off shore. You can indulge in some fun water sports, relax with a good book, or snooze in the sun listening to the waves lap the shore. Behind the beach, you can stroll along the long seafront promenade or admire the views up the pine covered mountains. Tavernas and cafes are dotted along the promenade, and if you’re feeling energetic you can follow it all the way along to the next village, Srebreno. As night falls, the romance of Mlini comes alive with spectacular sunsets. You can explore the surrounding coastline to discover the area’s other gorgeous beaches, such as Kupari Beach, Plat Beach and Pasjaca Beach.
Mlini is a small, quiet resort – and that is a large part of its charm! However, the area also has plenty to see and do if you can tear yourself away from those stunning beaches.
Mlini is a scenic town and a lovely place to walk around. Check out the town’s historic watermills along the rover, once used to mill flour and an important part of Mlini life. The name Mlini actually translates as ‘the mills’.
Mlini is a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Just 10km away and easily accessible by bus or train, Dubrovnik has everything from ancient history to shopping on offer. Walk around the city’s ancient walls, explore the unforgettable Old Town (the location of many scenes form the popular TV drama, Game of Thrones), or get a bird’s eye view with a trip up the Dubrovnik cable car. If you love museums, Dubrovnik boasts some excellent ones, such as the War Photo museum and the Gornji Ugao Tower.
A visit to one of the islands off the coast of Mlini makes for a great day trip. Take a boat to Lokrum to enjoy the botanical gardens, natural beauty and nudist beach (if you like).
