Islands Kornati
 

The Kornati archipelago consists of 140 islands, islets and cliffs, with 89 of them declared a National Park because of its natural beauty due to its numerous coves and crystal clear blue waters. It spreads over a surface of 220m2 and declared a national park in 1980 due to its unique shape and beauty. There are no permanent residents of the islands and most of the area belongs to the people of Murter island who come to tend the olive groves, the vineyards and orchards. They have cottages there, which nowdays mostly are offered as tourist accommodation units, specialized for robinson style holidays (self cattering houses with no electic power and running water).

On Kornati there are preserved traces of the past, the oldest archaeological findings of ruins from an Illyric village, stone graves and grave mounds.

The renowned Kornati „crown“ (steep or sheer rock) which faces the open sea, a characteristic found on all of the islands, is of distinct eminence and value in this region.
Inlets which stand out due to their magnificent beauty are by far Koromacna, Opat, Stiniva, Striznja, Sipnata, and Lopatica.

In the National Park Kornati there are around 30 piers and about 20 places where guests can try wonderful seafood and traditional cuisine.
From the marina, guests can find shelter on the island Zutu which is mainly uninhabited except for a few houses which are lived in from time to time and can be rented out to those who enjoy seclusion, better known as Robinson tourism. Robinson tourism is developing and guests are left to enjoy the beauty and quiet of Kornati.
This region is ideal for water sports. The marina on the island Piskera is located in a small inlet which is protected from the open sea by three smaller islands. Guests will find a restaurant which offers original seafood specialties and will feel right at home in Robinson tourism. The island Lavsa also offers shelter to anyone sailing by. The island Purara is an especially preservekkkd area- an island in the heart of the national park known to be an ornithological and floristical reserve. That is why approaching the island and coming to shore are prohibited.
