I am flying to Zadar in may and staying for 4 days in the town centre in a guesthouse. Money will be fairly tight and there will be two of us, I was wondering if anyone had ideas for an itinerary?
Principally I am interested in seeing a national park for a day or half day (e.g. Krka or the other one beginning with "P"). Was wondering what transport options there were e.g. bus and how regular they were to these parks. I like the idea of hiking for a few hours and then settling down in a local pub for a few local beers.
Secondly, I am interested in getting a boat for a day trip to a nearby island as believe it or not have never been on an island anywhere before - except the UK of course!
Also interested in history and was wondering if the tourist office did walking tours etc. Museums would be good too. If anyone could recommend a cheap Yugoslav-type kafana that would be good as well. I also like markets.
Lastly, if anyone could recommend a beach, preferably a soft sand one as I understand that quite a few are pebble beaches. Presume it is possible to rent a deck-chair for the day?
