Of the 140 Kornati Islands, 89 of them are part of the Kornati National Park. The terrain of the park is mostly Karstic. This means that it consists of limestone with sinks and ravines cut away by nature. The sculpture like white rock faces rise above the surrounding deep blue waters in a tantalisingly magical way.
The best way to get a good overall view of the rocks and cliff faces is to spend time on the water. Renting a sailboat in the Kornati Islands with a skipper means that you get to benefit from the services of an experienced sailor who also knows the Kornati National Park as well as islands like Žut which are part of the archipelago but not part of the national park.
The skipper of your boat can take you to Žut where there is a marina to moor the sailing boat that you have hired. From here, you can explore the island. The lack of inhabitants makes this feel like an island from a shipwreck movie; except that you have all the tranquility while also being able to leave whenever you want to. It's the perfect adventure.
Close by to the Kornati Islands is the Telašćica Nature Park. If you rent a sailboat with a skipper, they will be able to show you the location of this amazing place to visit; north of Kornati. There is a safe bay where your skipper can anchor or moor the sailboat you have rented. From here you can go ashore and climb the 160 metre-high cliffs. This gives you access to some stunning views across the water.
Having a skipper available, to take you where you want to go, means that you can concentrate on simply relaxing and enjoying this part of the Adriatic. You may even want to take time to have a swim in the clear and warm waters while the sailboat is moored.
The skipper of the boat can also help you to find where you get your ticket to explore the Kornati National Park. These tickets can be purchased at the National Park’s office on Murter. However, if you decide to rent a sailboat with a skipper in the Kornati Islands, you may want to buy your tickets before you leave on your adventure, as the tickets are less expensive when purchased online.
If you like the idea of exploring the Kornati Islands on a sailboat with a skipper, you can find the perfect craft by taking a look at the Sailogy brochures. All the skippered sailboats have an expert skipper onboard who can help you make the most of your trip around the islands.
You can simply relax onboard the sailboat as you sail past the the reefs and shoals that surround the islands, and moor at one of the marinas or quiet bays which are a feature of the area. Doing this means that you can save your energy for when you go ashore and explore one of the many easy hiking trails.
Choosing a reasonably priced sailboat with a skipper from Sailogy means that you have access to a reliable and comfortable sailing craft that is skippered by a professional who you can trust. You can relax in the knowledge that your journey will be safe and enjoyable. This means that you can spend your time admiring the natural landscapes of islands like Kornat and Piškera. It's the ideal way to explore the area, if you are not a sailor or if you simply prefer to let someone else take control of the boat.
