Best way to max 4 days off boat from Split

We are a family of 5 (kids 12, 10 and 8). We will be doing a boat trip for a week departing from Split and touring the different islands. When we return to Split, we have 4 days. I am looking for opinions/recommendations. We definitely want to visit Dubrovnik so we thought about going straight there for two days and then back to Split for the next two days before we fly out of Split.

Or, should we stay over on one of the islands on the way to Dubrovnik (or on the way back to Split) to have the experience of actually staying on one of the islands rather than just visiting by boat.

Any thoughts? As always, we wish we had more time to see it all!

Your plan to spend could days in Dubrovnik and couple in Split is a good one. Stick to that.

Visit Trogir from Split and maybe a day trip to Krka NP.

I second croman's suggestion. When travelling from Split to Dubrovnik, take the coastal route (longer) one way so you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery and then the highway the other (A1). Allow day for Dubrovnik Old Town/Walls/Mt. Srd. Not sure if you will have 2 full days there after factoring in driving time but If you have another full day consider a day trip to Mostar. You may just be able to squeeze in a few hours in Cavtat (45 minute water taxi from Dubrovnik).
