Kornati - National Park

Nestled in the Adriatic Sea, the Kornati National Park in Croatia is a hidden gem that is often overlooked by travelers. Comprised of a dense archipelago of islands, islets, and reefs, the park spans a vast area of 222km2 and is the largest protected area in Croatia. With its rugged terrain dotted with rocky coves and thickets, the park offers a sense of awe and wonder to those who explore it. During the day, the bright blue sky casts a peaceful hue over the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, while at night the only disturbance is the twinkling of the stars. Located in the middle of the ocean, the park is perfect for seeking solitude and spiritual reflection.
The main attraction of the Kornati National Park is its breathtaking coastline, which features over 140 islands and islets with unique shapes. Along the coast, visitors can find sheer cliffs and rookeries, clear turquoise waters, and secluded coves with sandy beaches. Some of the coves and along the islands' coasts also have narrow coral and mollusk beds that provide excellent visibility for snorkeling. Established in 1980, the park is primarily used for sailing, swimming, and exploring during the warmer months. It is also a popular destination for scuba divers, both experienced and beginner, due to its untamed reefs and undiscovered underwater world.

Flora and Fauna

In addition to its islands and reefs, the Kornati National Park is home to a variety of rare flora and fauna. On land, visitors can find several species of wild orchids and Mediterranean maquis, as well as a diverse array of animal species including rabbits, deer, the Apollo butterfly, and the Mediterranean gecko. The park also houses several churches and temples that provide a glimpse into its rich history. When compared to other destinations in Croatia and the Adriatic Sea, the Kornati National Park stands out as a true paradise for sailing and exploring, offering a one-of-a-kind scenery and experience. From relaxing on its beaches to snorkeling through its diverse marine life to exploring its historical landmarks, the Kornati National Park is sure to captivate and reward all who visit.
