Kornati National Park

Part of an island archipelago in the Adriatic Sea

The Kornati National Park is actually part of an island archipelago of 130 islands and islets, located in the Adriatic Sea. The largest of these islands is Kornati island, hence the name of the national park.

The Kornati islands tend to be rocky and are covered with Mediterranean scrubs. You will also find numerous olive groves and vineyards, which make for an incredibly scenic sight. But, there is no natural spring water on the islands, so be sure to bring your own.

The majority of the park is open water, with less than 1 of its space being confined to dry land. Sea caves, incredible sea birds and a vast diversity of sea life offer you incredible ways to enjoy the area. This is one of the most popular parks in the country.

The Kornati Islands National Park offers you an incredible diversity of islands, spectacular beauty and rich history. You can explore Greek and Roman ruins; visit the vacation palaces for Europe's aristocracy and more. Kayak, canoe, swim and fish through the islands.

You'll find islands given over to pastoral splendor, complete with grazing sheep and attentive shepherds, as well as uninhabited islands that provide views of olive groves and vineyards.
