About Kornati islands

A national park with numerous tiny, mainly uninhabited, islands. A yachtsman's paradise and a wonderful day out on a boat trip.

The Kornati islands are a fascinating group of 140 small islands. Astronauts have said that from space the sea around these islands is the clearest blue in the world. Nowhere in the world are these so many islands in such a small area. The only habitation is by fisherman and sheep farmers who spend the summer on the islands. There are no roads, cars or electricity in the Kornati and the national park is an ecological paradise. The islands are famous for their sage honey and for lamb grazed on the herb covered pastures. The rich underwater world abounds with coral, algae and sponges as well as underwater remains from the Roman era. It is no surprise that the Kornati islands attract divers.
