Zadar region: best base?

We are flying to Zadar for 9 days in September. We like a nice mix of beach, walking and sightseeing, with reasonably priced local food. Where should we base ourselves? We loved Rab and Lovran on the Kvarner gulf last year. Should we just hop on a ferry to Veli Losinj?

Mali Losinj is in Istria region, ZAdar is in Dalmatia. Where exactly do you want to go?

You could base yourselves in/near Zadar.

We spent three nights in Bibinje last year and went out to the islands Pasman and Ugljan one day (while our son went on a trip to Kornati incl. diving); we drove on down to Split but Sibenik would be OK as a day-trip from Bibinje.

On our journey back up to Istria we spent a night in Novigrad and then drove along Pag; both of those you could also do as day-trips.

Even Plitvice is do-able as a day-trip from Zadar too, at a pinch.

Thanks everyone. @tamerlano77: I realise that Dalmatia and Istria are different regions. It's just that after booking flights, Zadar seemed to lack somewhere nice to stay. I know and like Losinj, and it semed easy enough to hop on a ferry. @ barrymanilow: Nin is favourite to be honest. Is it really nice? Thanks, @ Lynda- we booked Zadar with the national parks very much in mind.
