We are a group of 4 (20 somethings) boys and girls travelling to Croatia for the last two weeks of an interrailing trip and are looking for advice on places to visit (late July and early August). We are starting in Zagreb and flying out of Dubrovnik, Ideally we are looking for a mix of beach and sightseeing, with Split and the Islands seeming like likely stops.
This is out itinerary so far...
Zagreb (3 nights)
Split (4 nights)
Island Hopping (6/7 nights)
Dubrovnik (3/4 nights)
Are main questions are would it be worth our while to take a day trip to Montenegro? What is the best way to work island trip, is there a specific order that people would recommend, (we would be starting our Island hopping on a Friday so would this effect the ferry possibilities) Ideally we would like to have a bit of flexibility with our trip but with it being high season is there any accommodation (especially on the islands) that people might recommend?
Thanks everyone for any ideas
