Saplunara forms the easternmost part of the island of Mljet, which extends in front of the Peljesac Peninsula as well as between the island of Korcula and Dubrovnik. This tranquil coastal village is known for its idyllic coves, like Limuni, and its local beautiful sandy beaches. Due to this, beach tourism which is not really typical for the island of Mljet, has been able to obtain relatively high importance.

In the village you can walk between the stone houses and terraced gardens in which flowers, citrus fruits and vegetables are grown. From Cape Gruj you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Elaphiti Islands. There is a military base on the Blace Peninsula, but it can not be visited as it has been declared a prohibited area. Additional points of interest, apart from the breathtaking nature, simply do not exist.
