Discover the captivating beauty of the Kornati Archipelago and discover the best of Dalmatia’s traditional and fine dining options. We believe it is a win-win situation! You get to sail past hundreds of island and islets, in the clearest blue sea you've ever seen, and then stop at lovely restaurants, in the middle of nowhere, literally, to enjoy the local delicacies and excellent wines.
You start your day in Zadar and head towards the Island of Žut. This is the largest uninhabited island in Croatia, and would definitely feel like something straight out of Robinson Crusoe novel if it weren’t for the ACI Žut marina and the restaurant Fešta, one of the most popular restaurants in the Kornati Archipelago. Moor right in front of Fešta and order their traditionally prepared fish, homemade bread and olive oil. Then take a small hike to the top of the island to enjoy the magnificent view of the Kornati Archipelago. If you are history savvy you will have to see the remains of the Byzantine fortress and the Early Christian basilica.
The second day takes you to the Kornati National Park, where your yacht will be moored in Lojena Cove, on the islet of Levrnaka. Silvery white sand covers the bottom of Lojena, the only sandy beach in the archipelago. Have lunch on your yacht or go to the traditional restaurant, Levrnaka. Towards the end of the day you will cruise to the restaurant Opat, on Kornat Island, where you will enjoy a fine dining experience in the remotest place imaginable.
After spending the night off Kornat Island your yacht will set off to the very heart of the Kornati Archipelago, the islet of Ravni Žakan. There you will find not only the perfect swimming spot, but also the restaurant Žakan. The menu consists of local fish and meat specialities, and we recommend trying the fragrant island lamb and the fisherman’s peka (a traditional metal bell used to bake food on an open fire). We also recommend taking a hike up to the top of the island to take in another view of the archipelago. At the end of the day, you will head back to Zadar, and your Kornati gastronomic adventure is over, but we have a feeling you will want to come back for more.
