Croatia honeymoon. Food. Beach. Fun. Advice?

Jump to last reply

Hello fodor friends. Your advice and wisdom is needed.
Guide books in the mail.

I found some cheap flights into split, and decided this is the honeymoon destination. Late May. Hows the water for swimming this time of year?

We are young, food driven adventure loving creative types looking for some relaxing beach time, with some good hikes, and incredible food and wine.
What regions are more wine centric, and what areas are renowned for their cuisine?
I also wouldn't mind indulging in a bit of local nightlife, not spring break style, but fun bars and music spots.
Would most likely rent a car so we can cover ground at will.
We wont mind splurging a little on lodging. Design hotels, beautiful little villas ect...

Hows the tourist intensity in May? Cruise ships?

I would love suggestions but so far a sample itinerary would be:

2 nights split, as we are flying in.
Ferry to Hvar 3 nights (do we need a car for split/hvar?)
Dubrovnik 3 nights (is this too many?)
???
Not sure where we would fly out of yet.
Total 9 days +/- 1 day.

Since we will be driving, towns or islands that offer somewhat convient to each other.

Can I have suggestions for islands or towns that are relaxed and beach driven with a touch of romance?

Thank you!
-E
