Kornati National Park The most interesting nature phenomenon on Kornati are cliffs on the western side of the archipelago, also called crowns (which ultimately gave name to the archipelago). The highest cliff is the one on the islet Klobučar (80 m high). Under the sea the cliffs continue their fall to the depth of about 100 m. On these islands there are numerous stone walls, built to protect the soil and enclose the sheep. There are no permanent residents on Kornati. The biggest settlement in Kornati is Vrulje, with about 40 very small houses. Although the vegetation is scarce, there are olive groves in some places. Kornati is a top destination for nautical tourism (there are two marinas in Kornati, on islands Žut and Piškera).
