Explore the rugged beauty and solitude of the Kornati Islands on your Croatia yacht charter
An archipelago of 130 uninhabited islands and islets, the Kornati Islands are one of Croatia’s best kept secrets. Named after the largest of the string of islands, Kornat, the idyllic Kornati Islands are perfect for avid yachters looking for a tranquil, but beautiful, place to explore.
With its steep, rocky cliffs bordering the islands’ edges, verdant, rolling hills, thin layers of grass and plentiful Mediterranean shrubbery, this locale is largely untouched – in fact, its only cultivated area consists of none other than the regions core vegetation: olive trees, fig trees and vineyards.
Characterized by a colorful world under the sea, one that includes a maze of secluded coves, vibrant corals and secret caves, the Kornati Islands are the ideal spot for adventurous yacht charter guests. While, today, the region has no residents, it was once inhabited by its current owners, who visit Kornati ever so often to tend to its grapes and olive trees.
While its unspoiled nature leaves little in terms of monuments and sightseeing, stop by the Kornati Islands – namely, Kornati National Park – during your next Croatia yacht charter adventure to explore its natural habitat.
