“On the last day of creation, God wanted to crown his work, and so he created the Kornati from tears, stars and breath,” wrote the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw. They are the largest and densest collection of islands in the Adriatic Sea – 147 islands, islets and reefs stretch over a length of about 35 km. We pass through the Kornati in its entire length and head for a bay at its northern end for a swim, where we also have lunch on board.
