Holidays to Split
If you’re looking for a bright and beautiful beach holiday, look no further than the white, sandy shores of Split.

It’s the ideal location for a getaway that all ages will enjoy – whether you’re 15 or 50, there’s plenty to see, do and enjoy in the area.

Sunbathe on stunning shores on a holiday in Split
The warm, Mediterranean climate makes Split a great choice of destination for sunseekers. Temperatures in the summer months often hit 30C, but averages around 18C even in the off peak season.
This sunny weather means that Split is the perfect place to hit the beach, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of sea and sand on offer. If you like your beach to be busy and buzzing, head for the popular central resort of Bacvice, which has won a coveted Blue Flag award for its well presented beach and convenient range of bars and restaurants.
However, if you prefer the peace and quiet of a more secluded sunbathing spot, visit some of the lesser-known areas of Split’s charming coast. The peaceful and serene Kasjuni and Bene beaches are further out of town and a little more remote, but your travel efforts will be rewarded once you reach their tranquil shores. With plenty of space to spread out and unwind, you’ll feel like you’re a world away from the centre of the city.
Dive into Croatian culture
It’s not all just sun, sea and sand in Split – with an abundance of museums and historical sites, there’s lots of locations to visit to keep culture vultures amused too. One of Split’s must see attractions is the famous Diocletian Palace, which was built by Roman emperor Dicoletian in the early 4th century. However, the Mestrovic Gallery, which showcases the work of Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, and the Croatian Maritime Museum also make interesting excursions.
On your holiday to Split, you’ll even have the opportunity to indulge in some drama at the Croatian National Theatre, which shows a range of opera, ballet and plays to suit all tastes. If you want to dig even deeper into the heart of Croatia and experience the true flavour of a big local event, take your holiday during the month of April, when Split plays host to the annual Croatian boat show.
