Legend has it that Kornati is a pile of white rocks thrown into the sea by God. When he turned around, he smiled with excitement - he was very pleased with his result. Kornati NP comprises 89 uninhabited islands and reefs, accessible only by boat. Untouched nature, beautiful bays, rock formations and steep cliffs. A true sailor's paradise awaits you!
Beautiful ancient lighthouses will guide you through the labyrinth of islands. The most beautiful lighthouse is Sestrica, which is definitely worth a visit. Some of the islands offer excellent harbours and anchorages (even used by pirates) thanks to their ruggedness and sheltered bays. Beautiful and well protected bays are for example Vrulje bay , Lavsa or the islet of Levnaka with its sandy beach Lojena. There is a marina and several restaurants. However, there is a shortage of drinking water in NP Kornati. Water and electricity are only available for a few hours every day.
Several times a day a boat passes between the islands with food, fruit and vegetables (only in high season). Food can also be bought on the island of Kornat (Vrulje and Opat bays), in the ACI marina Piškera (Vela Panitula island) and on the island of Žut. The largest marinas and yachting bases on Kornati are ACI marina Piškera on Vela Panitula island (in the national park, with a shop, water and electricity, showers and toilets) and ACI marina Žut (outside the national park). On Mana Island there are ruins of houses and towers, which are the remains of film sets built for the filming of the 1961 film Stormy Sea.
