An undemanding village just 15 minutes from the bustle of Dubrovnik, Mlini holidays have everything you could want from a classic Croatian seaside resort. With a cute waterfront promenade lined with seafood restaurants and bar terraces overlooking the Adriatic, it’s no wonder many visitors choose to stay here as an alternative to Dubrovnik’s Old Town. Mlini offers Mediterranean village seclusion with easy access to the city.
Holidays to Mlini are spent within its secluded coves and hidden beaches backed by fragrant pine trees. There’s one sandy beach and a remote, rocky naturist beach that’s reached by boat. Unlike your typical Adriatic fishing village, Mlini is located between freshwater sites that used to power flour mills – hence its name, which means ‘the mills’. And the pretty river that flows through the town is the source of the water you’ll be drinking – some of the freshest and cleanest in Europe.
