Bačvice Beach, Split, Croatia
Split is famous for its beaches, and rightfully so. This summer paradise has many to chose from, but one of our favourites is Bačvice beach. Known as one of Split’s most popular beaches. This warm summer getaway is well worth the visit. Situated around 1 kilometre away from the centre of Split. The beach is easy to walk to, offers great views, and is one of the reasons many people come to Split.
The beach can get quite crowded, and at times not just the sandy bits. During peak time, even the low water level can be full of locals and foreigners. Many playing games or swimming. One of the games the locals like is called Picigin, which involves keeping a small ball in the air using only your hands. So well, the beach is sandy and there is almost always plenty of sun. Be sure to get there early and stake out your claim to a nice bit of sand. Alternatively you can rent sun chairs, and sunshade for about 20 Kunas per day, but make sure you get there early for these as they will almost always sell out.
Bačvice beach offers some great amenities as well. There is a coffee bar located on the beach, offering up warm and cold drinks alike to beach goers. So you won’t have to walk too far if you make it down early in the morning. For those that build up an apatite sitting in the sun or swimming around, about 100 meters south of the beach is a pizzeria making fresh pizza daily. We think it’s well worth a visit.
Although Bačvice beach is one of Split’s most popular beaches and therefore most crowded. This actually is for a reason as some surrounding beaches like Ovcice beach has very little sandy spots where you can put a towel and will fill up instantly in the morning. So if you’re looking for a great place to hang out in Split, look no further than Bačvice beach.
