Some of Croatia’s prettiest, bluest waters glisten by the pebbles of Split’s beaches. Whether you want a paddle and to chill out by Marjan or further southwest, you’ll find plenty of choice by the sea. Some spots are sandy, and a handful are especially clean and suitable for families.
More to explore
Getting out and about around Split and its nearby islands is essential. You can take a hike up to the top of Marjan Hill for stunning scenery and centuries-old caves. Boat trips are popular ways to cover a lot of ground along Split’s coastline, while Krka National Park is a breathtaking must-see.
Split and the city
Cosmopolitan life in Split balances old and new harmoniously. If you’re jetting off on a city break, put Diocletian’s Palace at the top of your list. It’s a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old walls are worth venturing around too, before night-time when the buzz of chic bars and restaurants kicks in.
