Bacvice beach is the favorite bathing place in Split. Throughout the entire year you can see the most courageous ones bathing and playing picigin which is the favorite summer sport in Split. It was awarded a Blue flag which is a symbol of quality offer and clean sea. The beach is sandy with some parts paved, offering access to physically challenged people as well. There are bars, restaurants and pastry shops near in which you can refresh with a versatile food and drink offer during summer heats. The Bacvice beach is being supervised by experienced lifeguards so you can relax and enjoy the sun while your children have fun in the park that contains slides, trampolines and a rubber castle. For those who want entertainment, there is a beach club “Tropic” in which you can have fun until the early hours of the morning. The Bacvice beach contains outside showers, public toilettes, changing rooms, as well as the possibility of renting deck-chairs and beach umbrellas. Visit the restaurant on the beach and savor different Dalmatian specialties.

Join local residents at this lively and well-equipped urban beach located in the center of Split.
Bačvice Beach is the most popular beach in the city of Split, attracting both natives and vacationers to its energetic shores. Challenge friends or family to a game of picigin, splash about in the shallow Adriatic waves or sip a beer at one of the beachside bars.

This pebble and sand beach is a favorite local hangout and boasts a lively and buzzing ambiance. It’s been awarded Blue Flag status for its cleanliness and abundant facilities. Bring the whole family along for a day in the sun. The wide beach and shallow waters make it safe and especially suitable for children.

Rent a sun lounger and umbrella or bring a towel and lie wherever you please. This beach can get busy during the hot summer months, so arrive early in the morning to secure a well-placed spot.

Watch locals playing picigin in the shallows, ducking and diving as they attempt to keep a small ball from dropping into the water. This popular Croatian beach pastime is thought to have originated here on Bačvice Beach in the early 20th century. As you will see, it is still an extremely popular beach activity, fun to try but difficult to master.

Dry off during a stroll along the coastal path, which leads east from Bačvice past several smaller and quieter bays. Find numerous cafés and restaurants along this pathway. When you’ve had enough swimming, sunbathing and picigin, use changing facilities and showers located at either end of the beach to freshen up.

After a day spent at the beach, stop at the Bačvice restaurant-nightlife complex for dinner or an end-of-day drink. Located directly behind the beach, this three-story complex houses restaurants and bars that become lively after dark. Soak up the fun atmosphere and mingle with locals and tourists as they party the night away.

Bačvice Beach is centrally located and can be reached on foot from most central Split locations. To get here, take a 5-minute walk east from the ferry port or a 15-minute walk east from Diocletian’s Palace.

If you get hot on your trip to Diocletian's Palace you can stop off at Bacvice Beach. This is a good place to get a tan and see cosmopolitan Split at play.

Split's only sandy beach is small and quite crowded during the day, but if you arrive here later in the day and closer to dinner, there's definitely less people. It's a nice spot to relax and take in the view, or to go for a quick stroll after dining at one of the establishments nearby.

Its the only sandy beach in Split and it usually brings a large crowd during the summer. Im not sure if its man-made (it didnt seem so), but its definitely worth a visit. They also have a bar/cafe right on the beach and some pretty popular restaurants adjacent the beach.

Playa de Gandia

La playa mas céntrica de la ciudad, de arena. Está pasando la zona del puerto si se va caminando desde el centro, y recomiendo ir temprano porque es muy pequeña y a la tarde se llena de gente. No es una playa paradisíaca ni mucho menos, pero el agua es limpia y transparente y si se está por el centro de la ciudad no está lejos. Al menos para darse un chapuzon en Split vale la pena.
