my husband and i are going to Croatia in September. we are planning to go to Dubrovnik, Split and then onto an island (order can change!) i have three questions...

Can anyone recommend an island with sandy beaches;

how do i find bus and ferry routes and

are the buses air conditioned and nice? i have found that they can take a few hours :)

Thanks . Looks like our trip is getting pushed to October. How is the Ferry service between Korcula and Hvar at this time of year?

There is a daily catamaran at 6am except Sundays when it leaves at 1pm. There isn't a car ferry between Korcula and Hvar in October.

Actually, now I am looking at Jadrolinija timetable for 2012., and there is no ferry boat connection between Hvar and Korčula through entire year. I suppose ferry boat line was canceled and never launched again after Marco Polo ferryboat was stranded, and I apologize for incorrect information in my previous post.

Anyway, there is a speed boat (catamaran) connection daily, throughout entire year. For detailed planning of travel between islands, it’s necessary to consult national sea carrier at www.jadrolinija.hr
