Best Beach Town

My husband and I (late 50's) are springing for a trip to Croatia for us and my nephew and his family. The couple are in their 30's and their children will be 7 and 3 when we go. We plan on summer 2015. I am looking for the best beach town to take them to. We plan on renting a house or apartments. The kids love the water so we want to make it easy for my nephew to take them to the beach and back to our rental. The beach town could be on the mainland or one of the islands. We plan to also take day trips from the rental. Thanks!

My first thought was Bol on Brac but then I was also thinking something along the Makarska Riviera.

If you want t o do day trips I recommend the main land, it's more to do and see. Sibenik is getting a new city beach, Split has a bunch of beaches, but I think look closer into Omis and Primosten and maybe Seget close to Trogir.

Looks like most beaches are pebble -- suggestions for sand?

Croatia-beaches.com will show you where the sand is. Not much sand though! First time I went I was a bit concerned about the lack of sand but it's not a concern anymore since I realized the clarity of the water with the pebbled beaches is absolutely amazing. Check out Lopar on Rab or Sunj beach on Lopud near Dubrovnik.
