There are about 150 islands and islets in the Kornati area which makes this group of islands the most indented archipelago on the Croatian coastline and the densest one in the Mediterranean. The surface of the national park Kornati is 220 km² while the total area of the whole of the Kornati archipelago covers 320 km².
What's unique for the Kornati archipelago is one type of littoral that doesn't occur elsewhere on the Adriatic, this being the cliffs that reach as high as 80 m in the southern part of Kornati. These cliffs, popularly called the crowns of Kornati, extend from the island of Purara in the south-east to the south-west side of Long island (Dugi otok). Their total length is about 7,5 km.
Within the national park there are eight adjusted hiking trails under a common name of Hiking Path Kornati which lead to the viewpoints that provide a gorgeous look at the Kornati archipelago. There are also restaurants, the supervisory service as well as the info and reception points. Moreover, under professional supervision of certified diving centers it is possible to experience the adventure of scuba diving in crystal clear sea of Kornati.
For those who wish to visit the national park Kornati there are full-day boat excursions with lunch and swimming time included but it is also possible to organize a private trip for groups of up to 10 people. The excursions depart from Murter port which is the one closest to Kornati
