The town of Biograd is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia. In recent years, it has become a nautical center, thanks to Marina Kornati. Equipped with numerous utilities used for yacht maintenance, and offering a variety of services, it is one of the best marinas in which sailors can moor their yachts!
Every sailor is attracted to Kornati National Park in Croatia. This is not just because of the stark, bare land set against the bluest shade of the blue waters. It is not because of the peace and tranquility that surround the islands like a soothing mist in the early autumn morning. It is because of something else – it is about great food.
Kornati National Park is a place where you can get lost in the islands’ striking beauty, while at the same time enjoying some of the most authentic meals on the Adriatic. In the tavern Darko Strižnja, the seafood is caught with bare hands, lambs are bred in a nearby enclosure, and olive oil is made from the island’s olives.
Restaurant Mare, also known as Šporka Mare, is a famous restaurant on the islet Katina, in the heart of Kornati archipelago. This house on the shore was a shelter to fishermen and passengers. The owners turned it into an amazing restaurant that offers unforgettable seafood delicacies.
ACI marina Piškera is located in the heart of Kornati archipelago and offers its 120 berths from April to October for yachts up to 30 m. The view from the hill over the marina provides one of the most spectacular sunsets at the entire Adriatic.
