You will find an abundance of small coves, ideal for lunchtime anchorages a lovely afternoon of snorkelling. The Kornati islands and islets are mostly rocky, so there are no permanent settlements on the islands. Zadar is 3,000 years old; it is particularly known for its Romanesque churches, and claims the smallest cathedral in the world. Zadar is a thriving city steeped in history and well worth exploring. The Kornati islands were made a National Park in order to protect their natural beauty. Sailing south from Zadar, Sibenik and Primosten are within easy reach, both charming ancient towns. From Sibenik you can easily visit Skradin and the stunning Krka waterfalls, a must see for all visitors to the area.
