Best nearby beaches

Beach Bene
This rocky pebble beach is one of the oldest beaches in Split set within a stunning forest-side location that creates a tranquil backdrop. Drivers are forbidden to access the Marjan Forest Park so it is best to park up by the Northern Gate and walk the remaining two kilometre journey to the beach.

Firule Beach
One of the very few sandy beaches in Split, Firule beach is a popular choice for people of all ages. It has shallow waters and fine sand making it great for little ones. Its only amenities include a shower and a small bar where you can find refreshments.

Bacvice Beach
A hit with the locals, this beach is the proud owner of a blue flag – a symbol of its clear waters and cleanliness. It is located just one kilometre away from the city centre and has superb facilities including a park and plenty of places to grab a bite to eat.

Trstenik
This pretty cove is calm and secluded and you can rent a beach chair if you plan to make a day of it. There’s a snack bar on site should you get hungry and you can even get a day pass for the Radisson Blu Hotel if you fancy taking advantage of their spa facilities.
