planning a week in and around Dubrovnik - where to stay?

We've just booked flights for first week of September. Plan is to spend 4 nights somewhere we can relax, swim, walk, cycle and enjoy some simple meals and a few beers, followed by 3 nights in or very close to Dubrovnik.

I am starting to do some research and would welcome any tips and advice from previous visitors. 

First - Should we look at staying on one of the islands- Mjlet or Korcula  which seem to fit the bill and accessible from Dubrovnik airport?

How easy is public transport or do we need a car?

Many thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

You could always stay on Lopud Island which keeps you very near to Dubrovnik. Or any of the other Elaphite Islands.

Zaton is only 12km from Dubrovnik and the village has beautiful setting, you should look for private accommodation there. Also, Dubrovacka Gornja Sela (upper villages of Dubrovnik or Dubrovnik Hinterland Villages) are nearby so you could cycle there, visit the nearby cave or visit the village of Gromaca to enjoy folkloric dinner with local dance in a very authentic surrounding. Islands (Lopud and Sipan) are nearby as well and boats depart from here so you could do it as a day trip from Zaton. There is a public transport to and from Zaton.
