Sailing in the National Park Kornati
Out of 152 of the Kornati islands, 89 of them were declared a national park in 1980, because of the extraordinary beauty of landscape, the rich flora and fauna and the abundance of natural bays. Kornati are a unique experience for those who love crystal clear sea, peace and quiet, as well as the nautical and diving paradise, thanks to its numerous coves, bays and “wild” ports. There are also eight cleared up and marked hiking trails and they all lead to lookouts from which is possible to see the whole Kornati archipelago and some of its most beautiful areas. The name comes from the word corona, which means a crown, a name given to the biggest attraction of the archipelago – the vertical cliffs and rocks, facing open sea.
