Kornati National Park

This archipelago of Croatia has more than one hundred islands and islets, 89 of which are part of a natural park established in 1980 to preserve the beauty of these places and their surprising variety of animal and plant species.

The name of the archipelago derives from impressive rocks overlooking the sea which are called crowns, especially widespread in the Kornati Basse. They have impressive heights: 60-80 meters out of the water and more than 100 meters underwater.

They are islands of karst origin, with a rocky coast characterized by imposing cliffs, promontories and caves with a thousand ravines. This stretch of sea is a true paradise for sailors, divers and snorkelers; the beaches are often only accessible by boat and never crowded.
