Zadar and surrounding islandsHey,
Looking to go to Zadar in early October, thinking of a day or two in Zadar to explore and then wanting to head off and explore surrounding islands/ beaches etc.
Have heard its better to have a car to go to the islands but won't have one. Is it still possible to catch a ferry across from Zadar to the islands and stay and chill somewhere for a few days?
A rough idea of available accomodation and costs would be great...travelling on a budget, can we camp easily without our own tent?
Any general advice on the area and islands/ beaches that are accesible by public transport would be great.

1With exception of two islands, other islands in Zadar archipelago are small and no car is necessary to move around. On some, the cars are not even allowed. Ferries run throughout the year, daily, but not as frequent as in the high season. Most camps close end of September, if you do not have your own camping gear that is besides the point anyway. At that time of the year you should be able to find without problem inexpensive accommodation on the spot, in private homes. Towns are so small that within a short walking distance you can find a cove to sunbathe and swimm - no transport of any kind is needed. Large islands, such as Dugi otok and Uljan/Pasman have regular public transport. Check towns of Sali or Bozava on Dugi otok, islands of Silba, or Iz, to name a few. More populous Uljan and Pasman are by ferry a mere 30min from Zadar.
