The National Park Kornati in Croatia is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful parks in the world. Located off the coast of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea, it comprises 89 islands connected by clear blue waters and white stone. It has been declared a national park since 1980 to protect its beauty and wildlife and prevent people from building on the islands, which boast jagged coastlines, hidden coves, and enchanting underwater caves.
Kornati’s name originates from the main island in the group “Kornat”, and its total area covers 220 square kilometres (22 miles long and 4 miles wide). With abundant marine life, including species such as dolphins, octopus, sea turtles, seahorses, crabs and more – Kornati National Park is a natural marvel that offers visitors a true escape from reality.
While most of the islands within Kornati are uninhabited with little vegetation, some settlements along its shoreline remain open for tourists throughout the years. These traditional villages offer visitors a glimpse into daily life before modernity catches up. Visitors can sample local cuisines, such as grilled seafood dishes or homemade olive oil products. One can also find cosy accommodation options in these villages, where they can admire stunning Mediterranean views from their balconies or take part in activities such as fishing or sailing around the area.
You will also find rocky beaches with crystal clear waters around this area – making it perfect for swimming and relaxing among nature without crowds of other holidaymakers. A visit to Kornati National Park would not be complete without exploring its many hidden coves – some of which may only be accessed by kayak or boat due to their remote location. As you sail through these nooks and crannies, you may spot wild dolphins playing together in pairs or groups – an unforgettable experience!
On your journey through this natural paradise, don’t forget to appreciate the multitude of birdlife on display here too – with species ranging from gulls to terns and everything in between- it’s pretty common to encounter rare species here too – especially during migratory seasons when birds flock from all over Europe towards warmer climates here at Kornati National Park in Croatia.
