The archipelago, named after the biggest island Kornat, is a unique cluster of 150 islands, islets and cliffs spread over the central part of the Adriatic Sea. It is the bluest corner of the Adriatic and thanks to its breathtaking views, exceptionally clear sea, torrents of sunshine, numerous inlets, bays and small ports, Kornati are considered as a “nautical paradise”.
WHAT TO DO IN KORNATI NATIONAL PARK
The Kornati islands are entirely privately owned, even though the areas are not permanently populated there can be found an occasional old farm house on the islands. Some of these houses are now available to tourists for vacation rentals.
The crystal blue sea, scattered islands and hand built stone walls on the land give a spectacular view to visitors. To make the most of these views we recommend a boat tour that can offer you an additional lunch break at shore or bathing in secluded locations.
The submarine of Kornati islands is full of fish and colorful corals and is a favorite among divers and snorkelers. For scuba diving you will need a permit, that can be obtained through the diving center.
Visitors can explore the Park area by walking and admire many viewpoints, such as Metlina. Perhaps you would be interested to visit some of the landmarks like Church of Our Lady of Tarac, fortress of Tureta or hill forts Grba, Stražišće and Ščikat. Particularly interesting are the salt-works on the island Lavsa, or the “crowns” of Kornati – the famous vertical island cliffs facing the sea.
We recommend to visit the official website of Kornati National Park for additional information about types of accommodation, boat tours, diving and other services.
