    Climb to the top of island

    by dplesko Updated Jan 27, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is not so difficult to reach the top where you may have fantastic view to archipelago. Summer sun may be very strong and shade is very rare on the Kornati, so the best idea is to do that early morning.

    To make thing more interesting, take one stone when you start climbing with you and place it to the top on the pile (see picture). Then you may have one wish and it will come true.

    Unfortunately last time my wish didn't come true and I think I didn't take stone big enough.

    Inhabited islands

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 5, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since Kornati is a national park it has the special regime, no new construction are allowed since the time the archipelago was declared to be the National Park. Some islands and islets, however, are in the private property for a very long time and it new regine doesn't apply to them. The houses and other constructions could remined but nothing new is allowed to be constructed, even if the ground is in private property.

    lighthouses

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 5, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kornati archipelago consists of approximatelly 200 small islands, relativelly very close to each other. Even locals have problems to navigate in between in a dark nights or stormy weather conditions. There is the whole network of lighthouses in this area, awerting and helping skipers not to get stranded or crushed againt the ground if poorely visible conditions.%s?

    The gate to Kornati

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is bridge which connects islands of Ugljan and Pašman in the Zadar's archipelago and it is the closest way to Kornati if departing from Zadar or its surroundings. It might be coloquially called the gate to Kornati and Telašcica. Do not miss both of this destinations when in area of Zadar.
    Too bad it wasn't bright sunny day all the time, while travelling to Telascica it was mixed, more cloudy then sunny.

    Departing from Sukosan

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I embarked at Sukosan but this boat came from departing port of Zadar, picking up small groups of visitors in various other places. The boat looks pretty solid which is not of less importance, in case of sudden storm when in open sea. It is not fast boat and shouldn't be, enabling passengers to observe around. We had pretty descent lunch, grilled fish, which is included in a price of tour.
    What you see on the last two pictures is the bridge connecting islands of Ugljan and Pasman.

    SWIMMING!

    by 7_seconds Written Aug 30, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is definitely the main activity you should do here!
    The sea is crystal blue, pure perfection!
    (there are no sandy beaches here, so if you don't like rocks, take shoes with you)

    if you see a sea urchin like this one, it is a sign that the water is very good quality. you don't find them in dirty waters :)

    Discovering the hidden lake on Dugi otok

    by mjelic6 Written Jul 22, 2008

    Just few meters from the sea, near the Telascica bay, there is a small lake on Dugi otok. It is saltier than the sea and many people go there for healing. If you go to the south you will find a field with amazing stone figures and beautiful cliffs on the south side of Dugi otok.

    Rocks and more rocks

    by croisbeauty Written Aug 28, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The very next to be noticed is the amazing structure of the roks. Some of them look almost like being built by the mysterious civilisation, dissappeared from the earth who knows when. Marvellous nature have created here some of their most stunning pages.

    Blue, blue and more blue

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    First thing one can noticed around is the predominate blue colour, light blue above and deep blue sea-water which is so characteristic for the Adriatic sea. Such a intensive blue colour exist only if the water is crystal clear.

    Getting to Kornati

    by croisbeauty Written Aug 28, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Embark yourself, doesn't matter if small or big boat, the one which is slow or fast, sailing boat or rocket one, it is so irelevant when here.
    Kornati is huge group with over 200 islands and islets positioned in a relatively small area in the central part of Dalmatia. Most of the islands are permanently uninhabited, some of them during the summer season only and not more than few are inhabited. Rich people, from all over the world would like to buy some of the islands but I hope it wont happened.

    More walls

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dry stonewalls are everywhere in the Kornati. They were built along the centuries and kept in good condition by the shepherds for their flocks.
    In the foreground, an enclosure for the cattle at night can be seen.

    Walls for the cattle

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shepherds built all these walls in order to allow the cattle to graze in the right place and not in the neighbors place !. In spring there is plenty of grass and flowers. In summer, everything is dry.

    Another green spot

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Why not try this one ? We have not been to this place as there was no shelter safe enough for a sailing boat but I can imagine that if you have a small boat that can be towed ashore, that has to be a wonderful place to stay.

    Soft water !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fresh water is scarce on the islands. If it is green in summer, be sure there is soft water that has accumulate in the spot ! May be it is not drinkable, but it is in the soil and in quantities that allow the vegetation to grow.

    Ruggy mountains and smooth sea

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The landscape is always the same and always changing. In spring, it was full of flowers (we were not here, but I know !). Sheep had plenty to eat and they did ! In summer, everything is burned out and there are tourists (few) instead of sheep : they don't need any green grass !!
