Best stops from Split to Dubrovnik

We have a two week trip planned in Croatia. We have a few extra days unplanned and are trying to decide where to spend them. We will be visiting the area around Dubrovnik, and then spending time in Korcula and taking the ferry to Split. We like the outdoors (hiking, quiet beach coves) but also love historic towns. We will have a car. So, should we stop somewhere between Korcula and Split to visit a different island? Or, should we use the days to stop somewhere between Split and Dubrovnik? From Split we will visit Trogir and Plitvice Lakes before driving from Split to Dubrovnik. Thanks for your advice!

I think the Island of Vis would be something to look into, but you would have to get to Split and then head out there,no direct way to get there from Korcula.

If you can make from Korcula to Orebic at Peljesac peninsula, you will come to "wine-land", lot of options for wine lovers. You can visit Ston with great wall to climb or oyster farms, nearby.

If that's not enough, you can drive toward Bosnia and visit Narona (near Metkovic) with great Museum of Roman antiquities, or process to Mostar with great stops in Pocitelj, Buna, Mostar and maybe Mogorjelo Roman villa in Capljina. At the other side of Neretva river you will find city of Stolac with Bosnian medieval tombstones and if you like to climb, ruin of Illirian fortress Daorson with great megaliths.....

If you need more ideas, just ask. I can find couple of waterfalls around and some other interesting things.

Agree with the suggestion of driving the Peljesac Peninsula. Many wineries (we enjoyed the tour and tasting at Matusko) as well as some excellent restaurants in Mali Ston, where they farm mussels and oysters in the bay. Orebic was also a quaint little town, maybe worth a walk through.

I should have also added that you can walk the walls around Ston/Mali Ston. We didn't get the chance, but it looked like the views would be great.
