Kids friendly Kornati Route
Starting point: Marina Kornati, Biograd na Moru
Zadar International airport is only 20 km away from Marina Kornati. We can arrange a transfer from the airport to the marina for you. Transfer is not included in the price.
The Kornati National Park is often mentioned as “nautical paradise” with its 89 unforgettable islands, islets and reefs. Kornati islands are one of the top Croatian attractions!
There are no permanent residents of the islands and most of the area belongs to the people of Murter island who come to tend the olive groves, the vineyards, and orchards.
Safe beaches with clear water perfect for snorkeling, hiking and biking tracks to suit all ages, interactive museums, and lots of ancient towns and fortresses for little knights and princesses to explore make this route a lot of fun and perfect choice for family vacations.
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Biograd and get to the Marina. Your check-in on the boat will be at 5 PM and you will spend the night there. Biograd is an ideal starting point to visit a number of Croatia’s national and nature parks.
Since this is a kid-friendly route, what can be more fun but to start your adventure on the 1st day in a Fun Park!

Telaščica bay makes this a fully nature-driven route since it’s situated in the Nature Park Telašćica.
Upon arriving, the park rangers will approach you by boat to buy tickets for the Nature Park. Boats are welcome to anchor there. Telašćica is one of the most beautiful and largest bays in the Adriatic Sea. It is surrounded by 13 islands and islets, and 6 islets within the bay itself. You can use this time to explore the park, partake in activities like diving, kayaking, recreational fishing, photo-hunting, cycling, trekking and much more.
Following the path of nature, you’ll continue your route to the Kornati islands.
On your way to Murter, you will sail through the Kornati archipelago, enjoy the beauty of secluded bays, swim and snorkel in clear waters of Kornati paradise.
The town of Murter is very rich in history. It was first mentioned in the 13th ct. Today, Murter is a town of about 2000 inhabitants and a popular tourist destination.
Authentic stone-vaulted streets, simple dwellings, stone walls covered with ivy, combined with modest but innovative ingenuity have all served to preserve the story of Murter from vanishing into the history books.
To reach Skradin you will sail through the beautiful canyon of river Krka. Skradin is a romantic Mediterranean town with narrow cobbled streets, passages, arches, and stairs and is located at the entrance to Krka National Park. The entire town of Skradin is a protected cultural heritage monument.
A perfect leg to stop over on some of the nice little islands like Zlarin and Prvić on your way to Vodice and explore. Vodice is a popular tourist destination, known for its vibrancy, diversity, tourist attractions and friendly people.
If you will still have time and energy after a long day of water activities and sailing, visit sandy beach “Plava plaža” which is particularly attractive to children.
The day before returning to Biograd we choose for you to relax on a secluded island Vrgada.
Dense pine forests, clean sea and beautiful beaches are the main features of the only populated island of the Pakoštane Riviera. Vrgada is an ideal place to relax and feel no stress while visiting with kids since there are no cars or other motorized vehicles allowed on the island.
Before getting back to the marina, enjoy sailing, swimming and sunbathing. You should be back in the marina by 6 PM. We suggest spending an evening in Biograd. Explore the city and available activities that you didn’t experience on the first day. Take a walk to the beach and enjoy the sun before check out.
Check out is the next morning on Saturday at 9 AM.
