Take a swim in the crystal clear, warm waters of the Kornati. It is an experience that cannot be described in words.
No license is needed to swim in the Kornati.
WATCHING THE WILDLIFE
The underseas of the Kornati National Park offers countless opportunities to watch the rich plant and animal life. The land part of the Park, although seemingly a semi-desert, is also full of life. It is confirmed that there are 537 plant taxa on the land and it is assumed that there are 700-800 higher plant species. The animal life is, unfortunately, poorly studied. Beside rodents, snakes, lizards, insects as well as other residents mainly uninteresting to the visitors, there is also a predator confirmed in the Park – Beech Marten. Unfortunately, it's extremely difficult to see "face to face". However, there are many interesting birds in the Park: eagle owl, peregrine falcon, kestrel, common buzzard, shag, seagull and so on.
We ask you to avoid any closer contact with the animals and not to disturb them, because this area is their home.
HIKING THROUGH THE KORNATI
The numerous Kornati viewpoints and lookouts will offer really unforgettable moments and impressions. The interesting geological and geomorphological phenomena you'll be able to see will stay in your memory for a long time.
It's not particularly difficult to reach the viewpoints. However, during summer you have to keep in mind the sun which can make the hike unbearable. Take a hat and other protection against the sun because there is very little shade in the Kornati.
The land part of the Kornati Park is completely privately owned, mostly by the people from the nearby island of Murter. Therefore, when hiking, behave as a good and considerate guest.
EATING IN RESTAURANTS AND TAVERNS
Restaurants will offer to their guests tasty and varied Kornati and Dalmatian specialties.
Fish and meat dishes are prepared in a simple peasant way, boiled or grilled, flavoured with the owner's own olive oil.
There are about 20 restaurants and taverns in the Kornati National Park that, more or less successfully, offer good food. The selection mostly consists of sea food (fish and lobster) as well as the Kornati lamb.
Kindly hosts and good ambience, local food prepared according to local recipes – the combination will make a favourable experience out of your visit to a Kornati tavern...
