Split is only an hour from the 16th Century Venetian style grace and glamour of Hvar: which is the place to be if you're into star gazing of the silver screen variety. Hvar Town especially has the reputation for being the Croatian Cannes, and the rest of the island is less built up and more covered in a heady blend of lavender, heather and rosemary, and there's hiking and biking trails to be explored in the ridge of hills that define the island's spine.
The coastline dips from rocky cliffs to secluded sandy coves but the best beaches are on the Pakeleni Islands about 20 minutes from Hvar Town by water taxi, or a bit longer if you travel out to them by sea kayak. From Hvar, Brač is only a 45 minute ferry trip.
The Split archipelago is good for spotting famous faces and good eating and drinking, but this holiday idea also visits Zlatni Rat, Croatia's most photographed beach.
