How you get to Dalmatia’s coastal destinations depends on your wallet, time, and whether you want to settle in at a single destination or move around to see as much as possible. Split is the logical northern starting point for any trip along the southern coast, unless you are chartering a private yacht and can pick your ports of call without worrying about traffic, bus schedules, or flight plans. On the mainland coast, a car gives you maximum flexibility, but to do the coast and outlying islands, you’re best using a combination of buses and ferries.
