Where should we spend a week in Croatia?

We are spending 5 nights in Zadar and 2 in Plitvice then we have 7 nights which I would like to spend in the Split region. We probably want to spend a couple of days visiting some islands on daytrips but as we are travelling with two young children so we would like a base where we can spend most of our time if we want to just relax.

We would like, somewhere with a nice beach, some nightlife (a few bars / restaurants) and easy access to visit the different islands.

Should we stay on the mainland or base ourselves on an Island like Brac or Hvar? We want somewhere buzzy but not overrun with tourists.

Is Vis too quiet to spend a week there?

Thanks!

Vis is pretty quiet and would have been my suggestion but not sure it would be too quiet.

Vis is crowded in July and August only, probably about the same as other islands. Only Split would provide easy access to day trips, so you have to decide how much you want to move around.

With kids, a great place is Makarska riviera, with its pebble beaches, some night life (particularly in Makarska) but not excessively, and access to Hvar (one-day boat excursions)...
