Accommodation on the Kornati
Accommodation on the Kornati islands is most often found in fishermen’s houses, which are actually secluded houses
Kornati – Robinson Tourism
With its islands, islets and cliffs, the Kornati islands are the most indented archipelago in the whole of Mediterranean. Due to extraordinary beautiful landscapes, great indentedness and a rich marine flora and fauna, a part of the archipelago became a national park. The Kornati islands are not permanently populated. What you can find there is mostly farmland belonging to residents of the island of Murter, who have fished, grown olives, vine and kept sheep there for centuries. The fishermen’s houses have been turned into comfortable accommodation for people looking for peace and quiet, for those who want to be surrounded by nature, for those who would like to experience life of the old days in this bare landscape. There are houses all around the archipelago. In some of the bays there is only one house, in some of them there are several and in the largest village on the Kornati islands, there are 50 houses. There are no roads, only tracks you can take long walks on. There are no ferry boats going to the islands, you can get there only by your own (or our!) boats. There are shops in only a few of the bays, but there are more of the restaurants and fishermen’s taverns.
Some of the houses on the Kornati islands are in Robinson-like conditions, i.e. they do not share the standard of the apartments on the island of Murter. There is no water supply system or electricity. Instead of electrical ones, there are solar (12 V) and gas-lights, instead of an electrical fridge, there is a gas-operated one, instead of running tap water, there is rain-water from a storage tank. There is a solar shower in front of the house, using the heat of the sun.
The Kornati islands offer many ways you can enjoy yourself (swimming, fishing, scuba-diving, nature walks…), but you still need to bear in mind that this kind of holiday is first of all recommended to those who will enjoy this kind of life, and will not miss comforts of modern technology and city life.
To all of those who decide to rent a fishermen’s house on the Kornati islands, we strongly recommend a rental of a small boat, which will enable you to get around and explore islets and bays nearby
