The biggest national park in Croatia is made up of 140 islands in the northern corner of the Adriatic Sea. Located along the coastline known as Dalmatia, Kornati National Park is accessible from Zadar. It boasts islands that are not much more than two acres; others once hosted sizable sheep farms. Rocky and sun-drenched, covered by white limestone most are barren of trees ever since the greedy Italians came and cut them to help construct Venice. The best grilled lamb I’ve ever had was on one of the islands, roasted over an open fire, after a full life spent munching on rosemary and washed over daily by sea salt.
