Where to go? family holiday croatia coast

Hi

We are a couple with children aged 2 and 4 and looking for a small town/village on the croatian coast/island. Travelling in late august and want somewhere with a max transfer of 2 hours from Split or Dubrovnik. We want to be walking distance to a nice beach (prefer sandy) and choice of restaurants. There is so much choice I am overwhelmed...

We are looking at Bol (Brac) or somewhere on vis or Hvar island . Any suggestions of towns and or accommodation (we need 2 bedrooms) in these areas (or even somewhere we have not thought of!), gratefully received.

As always the sandy beach part of that will be the most difficult. With such young children i would suggest Korcula with a very shallow beach at Lumbarda a few km away from Korcula Town. Another possibility would be the island of Lopud near Dubrovnik.

Area between Omis and Podstrana (south of Split is probably ideal for the people with small children. Looooooooooooong, long stretch of shallow water and close enough to Split or Omis, huge mountain behind and island Brach in front. Evening at Omis or maybe visit to old fortress would be nice touch for kids. If you have never been in Split, late afternoon and evenings in Split can be magnificent with beautiful sunset.
