I would like to know which is a good island pick to visit from Split? We are a couple traveling with a 5 year old , intention is to get a flavour of Croatian Islands. Hvar, Bol/Brac or the Blue Lagoon area.
Hvar or Brac will need to be done using the croatian ferries (no tours functioning on our dates). I would like to know if one of these islands is doable in a day trip using the ferries. I see that they are not too frequent and takes a lot of time.
This is what am aiming -
1. Take a 7:40 am ferry from Split to Hvar.
2. Travel by bus from Hvar to Stari Grad.
3. Take the ferry back from Stari Grad to Split at 17:30.
Does this sound like a good plan? Or is a readymade tour to blue lagoon good enough to get a flavour of the Croatian islands. The tour claims to cover Krknjaši, popularly known as "Blue Lagoon" , Maslinica and Ciovo.
