A plethora of local ferries connect the islands with the Dalmatian coast and there is one ferry connection to the northern coast and Istria. Jadrolinija's Zadar-Mali Losinj- Pula passenger ferry runs all year.
Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar are the main gateways to the Dalmatian coast, connected to Zagreb via Croatia Airlines and to an increasing number of international destinations. See more on flights to Croatia and flights around Croatia.
There are very frequent buses from Zagreb's bus station to the Dalmatian coast and many buses running up and down the coast from Zadar to Dubrovnik. See bus schedules from Dubrovnik and getting around Croatia by bus.
