Default Croatia holiday - can anyone help please

Ok our 18 yo daughter and her boyfriend are looking at booking an activity holiday in Croatia. They have a limited budget though and it's more expensive than they realised.

I love a diy holiday project but know nothing about the area. It seems most are situation off the coast of Dubrovnik on islands.

To put it together I would need a vague idea of distances (town/airport/port/islands etc), transport options, accommodation and general do's and don'ts.

Any help gratefully received!!!!

For people to be able to help you, you need to be far less vague with your questions.

You could also find out an awful lot with a few focused Google searches....

Fair point and highlights my main problem: that I have no knowledge of the area. Am happy to do the google searches but don't have any starting point.

It would be helpful to know if there any island well known locally for its water sports in particular, preferably good value?

Is it a short/long ferry ride (which would bump the cost up)

Basically anything anyone can add would be good so that I can do my own research.

The cheaper flights are to Split and Dubrovnik but the flood of tourists going to Croatia are making it more crowded and prices seem to be increasing, and the distance from that part of Croatia to other parts is quite long by bus or other means of transportation. Pula and especially Rijeka less crowded , Rijeka visited mainly by cruise ships it seems so perhaps for an 'activity' type holiday or visiting the islands maybe more affordable.Taking bus from Pula to Rijeka is very inexpensive. In Istria once in a while I met British students on EU Erasmus programs such as work-study 6 month programs. Prior to Brexit may be worth looking into.

Plivitce lakes an idea, it is inland but natural beauty and opportunities in the are for hiking etc

If they are on a budget, tell them to fly into Dubrovnik and go south of the border to Montenegro. 1/3 of the price, less tourists and debatably more beautiful!
