Kornati National Park is one of Croatia’s most stunning areas. The park covers the largest area of Kornati waters, and the islands were proclaimed a national park in 1980 as a result of their exceptional landscape, beauty, interesting geomorphology, rugged coastline and the rich underwater ecosystem. Discover the breathtaking beauty of Croatia on board your luxury charter yacht.
Key Cruising Areas: Kornati is an area of 140 islands and islets, which is 35 kilometers long and 14 kilometers wide, making it a dense archipelago to cruise through.
Don’t Miss: The hundreds of coral reefs and local wildlife. If you’re a keen snorkeler or scuba diving enthusiast, you will spend hours in the clear blue waters discovering the magical underwater life around the islands.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Šporka Mare (Dirty Mare) located on the south shore of the islet Katina, near the Proversa Vela Strait also (the north gate of Kornati National Park). Four generations of the same family have run this restaurant. For an authentic feel of the islands and a traditional meal of freshly caught fish, crabs, and mollusks, this is the place to go. If you’re looking for a more lively place for a bite to eat, head to Konoba Idro in Lavsa Bay.
Best Local Dish: A classic dish is a platter of whole fish that has been locally caught. Deliciously and fresh, it is grilled over a barbecue and often garnished with a lemon and olive oil, served with a side of blitva sa krumpirom, made from potato and Swiss chard.
Local Culture: Much of Kornati appears deserted, and there is very little accommodation. It’s minimal landscape and small islets are home to traditional fishermen and families who have lived there for generations. It is unlike any other place in the world.
Best Beach: Saharun Bay has a stunning sandy beach stretching that is almost a kilometer in length. The water is very shallow, and the waters are perfectly clear.
IYC recommends: Don’t miss the only lighthouse on the Kornati, Tajerske sestrice, located on a small forested in the archipelago. Built in 1876, it is easily recognizable by its bold red and white stripes. For a tranquil bay, Telascica is a nature park located in the southeast side of Dugi Otok. This bay is close to a spectacular salt lake, which you can swim in.
