Alternately, consider one of the many other south-facing locations along the southern cliff face of the island – you won’t be disappointed.

While visiting the hilltop fortress, we recommend you stop at the Panorama restaurant. Not only is the view from here spectacular, but if you make your reservation on time, you can catch the sunset while enjoying tasty food and warm atmosphere!

Kornati islands, Croatia 

some of the many Kornati Islands, CroatiaBetween Zadar and Šibenik, 109 islands, islets, craggy rocks and reefs have found their place and merged into the Kornati islands. Of those 109 islands, about 80 have been wrapped into Kornati National Park

A real paradise for sailors exploring the Dalmatia Region, the Kornati islands are mostly uninhabited, which creates a unique opportunity for exploring secluded coves and small beachlets – with white sand bottoms under the clear Adriatic waters where you can see the bottom even in deep water! An amazing diving location too!

the Kornati Islands, CroatiaOn the highest peak Metlina, you can enjoy the view of the entire archipelago, which makes climbing the 237 metres of hike worth it! But it’s a dry, hot hike in the blazing sun so prepare accordingly with lots of fluids and a hat.
