Chasing the Donkey Tours: Kornati Islands Day Trip
Have you ever dreamed of sailing the Adriatic’s beautiful turquoise waters? Meandering through a network of islands, waving at other yachts passing you by, and stopping in secluded bays for a dip, to cool off, snorkel or just relax? Couple that with some fantastic Croatian cuisine and you have the perfect day.
If you’re looking for that memorable experience in Croatia, come and Chase the Donkey with us – we will take you on a cruise of the Kornati Islands National Park on a luxury boat.
We’ll get up close and personal with the Kornati Islands, show you secret swim stops, pour you a glass of boutique wine and craft beer and serve up some of the Zadar Regions best gourmet produce, as well as take you for an unforgettable lunch experience.
The Kornati Islands are are a true gem in the Adriatic and we would like for you to join us on this day trip & experience two of the things we love most about Croatia, cruising the Adriatic and savoring Croatia’s finest food.
The Kornati Islands National Park consists of 89 islands, islets and reefs spread over 217 square kms. The Kornati Islands are a dense cluster of islands meaning there are numerous small coves, beaches and bays where you can stop and just take a swim, and take in the pristine environment all within close proximity to each other. Kornati National Park is perfect for those looking to experience unique natural landscapes, soaring cliffs and barren rocky mostly uninhabited islands, it has to be seen to be believed. The Adriatic is at her glorious best in the National Park, and with the backdrop of the Kornati Islands, you will be stunned at the natural beauty of the area. If you’re in Croatia this is an experience not to be missed.[espro-slider id=20256]
