Visitors to the Kornati National Park must always respect and respect the fact that all Kornati islands, except that they are protected as natural heritage, are private property.
It is also possible to rent fishing houses. Fishermen’s houses are also privately owned by people from Murter and Betina who temporarily stay there during seasonal work and are mostly rented in the summer.
