Good advice on which island to choose for summer holiday?

by bergensanne Online Now Feb 4, 2013 at 8:44 AM

We're a family of four (kids aged 10 and 13) - we're looking at spending two weeks in Croatia this coming July. We've been to Hvar and Vis previously - although we enjoyed both places, we'd quite like to try somewhere new. The island of Lopud has been suggested, but some say it's too crowded and swamped with Scandinavians... Anyone with experience? We'd like to go somewhere relatively quiet - want to relax on the beach and eat good food, but also sometimes be able to visit a historic building or go for a day trip. We can fly to Split or Dubrovnik. Where is the perfect place??? Any advice will be much appreciated!

Anne :)

    I'd suggest Krk island. It isn't far from Rijeka.

    Mljet, with its beautiful and relatively uncrowded National Park. Ferry from Dubrovnik.

    agree for Mljet island
    check Primosten and Nis places... although both are not islands but seems to be good for family travel...

    My vote goes to Lumbarda on island Korcula - not too crowded, mostly locals, some bars and a marina, beaches on the opposite sides of the island, local bus or taxi to Korcula - a gorgeous city with numerous historical buildings, lovely bars, restaurants etc.
