Any advice would be great!!

Comments for Route for beach and vineyard lovers in Croatia
in general you can find fantastic beaches all over Croatia (along the coastline and in the islands - Croatia has more than 1000 islands and isles). If you ask me about my personal top spots with the most beautiful beaches - I would think about those two beaches first:
1) Hvar island
It's located in the southern part of Croatia and you can reach the island via ferry. I visited Hvar island last year and have published the ferry ride here (due to the lack of time I haven't published all photos and comments for Hvar itself... but it's on my to-do list):

By the way, Hvar has some breathtaking beaches
with crystal clear azure waters!
2) The famous Zlatni Rat beach
in Brac island
(USAtoday rated this beach into the top 50 beaches worldwide).
As for vineyards (funny by the way, because I also love wine and vineyards and have a separate website about wine clubs and wine - on the home page you can see a photo of myself in one of the many Croatian vineyards (scroll down): WineClubWizard.com
Croatia has a lot of vineyards (most people don't know that)! But, the best place for grapes to grow is in the hinterland. So, you would need to take a trip off the beautiful coastline. Zagreb
(Croatia's capitla) and the norhtern area of "Varazdin" is THE spot in Croatia for wine.
Hope that helps!
