My husband and I will have 6 days in Croatia in June and want to do 3 days based in Split and 3 days in Dubrovnik (will drive between the 2). I know it's a short time in each location but really want to see both. We are early 30s, love the outdoors and being active, but also love to stop and have a few wines by the beach.
In Split, we want to have some island/boat time, visit Krka National Park (will drive), and spend time in Split. Would we be better doing a day tour of the islands, or just go to Hvar and spend a night there?
Split Daily Tours do a 5 island tour of the Blue Cave, Green Cave, Budikovac, Pakleni and Hvar, with about 40 minutes in the caves and 2 hours max at each of the islands. If we do the day tour, is it worth us not getting the tour boat back to Split and staying in Hvar for the night, returning by ferry to Split the next day?
TIA, and thanks for all the amazing advice in these forums!
