Split & Surrounding Islands

Split, along with the islands of Hvar, Brac, Vis and Solta are nestled in the region of Dalmatia, amidst the pristine beauty of the Adriatic Sea. This region of Croatia is known for its natural aesthetic beauty – secluded white sand beaches, rugged coastlines and island coves, all of which contrast wonderfully with modern marinas, charming old towns and a vibrant nightlife that has made Split and its neighbouring islands one of the most popular choices for luxury holidays in Croatia.

Split

A city with a wow-factor, Split offers a stunning boulevard, a Roman palace that is a living part of the city centre and a popular sandy beach within walking distance.

Trogir

Walking through this charming little UNESCO town is like walking through a museum. And the cherry on the cake is the beautiful boulevard lined with palm trees.

Hvar island

Croatia’s most trendy island, a celebrity hotspot with an amazing nightlife, romantic beaches and beautiful nature.

Brac Island

The famous Zlatni Rat beach is the island’s calling card. Besides a beautiful landscape and lovely villages, the island also offers lots of options for active holidays.

Vis Island

Vis is a somewhat isolated island, but its isolation has served to preserve the island’s authenticity. Travellers flock to Vis to experience serenity of the rugged coastline, gourmet cuisine  and its strong traditional Croatian roots.

Our Insider Guide with everything you need to know about Split

Language

Croatian is the official language.

English, German and Italian are widely understood.

Religion

Catholicism

Passports & Visas

Croatia is part of the EU, therefore visas are not required for UK and EU citizens.

Popular Destinations

Split

Split’s most striking feature is the stunning UNESCO listed Diocletian’s Palace, a Roman monument that stands at the centre of the city and is now filled with bars, restaurants and shops. The Palace was an inspiration for Robert Adam’s new style of neoclassical architecture – a simplification of rococo and baroque style – it has a good selection of bars on the ground floor and upper levels as well as a maze of underground temples and tunnels beneath it that add a layer of mystery to any visit there.

The city balances tradition and modernity with a fabulous zeal – there is an excellent collection of modern bars and restaurants along the Riva, incredible pieces of architecture including the towering Split Cathedral, the colourful Croatian National Theatre and of course the gorgeous harbour where one can stare out to the deep blues of the sea or even lay back on a private yacht soaking up the atmosphere.

Hvar

The island of Hvar is one of our favourites in Dalmatia – you’ll find lush vineyards and pinetopped hills, medieval streets and modern bars and restaurants that contribute to what is one of Croatia’s most talked about nightlife spots. The old town is encircled by a 13th century wall, it’s traffic-free, adorned with Gothic palaces and lined with marble streets, and at the centre is St. Stephen’s Square – the best al fresco dining spot on the island. It is simply remarkable.

As well as nightlife, impeccable beaches and wonderful food, the island has a variety of secrets should you wish to uncover them – from abandoned villages and rugged cycle paths that take in the best views, to antique architecture and numerous coves and inlets that allow for privacy and heaven-like perfection away from the crowds.

Brac

Brac’s sumptuous white beaches are world famous – but the most famous of them all is the pointed pebbly beach at Bol which sticks out far into the Adriatic sea. There are several towns and typical sleepy villages to explore, as well as miles of beautiful countryside adorned with pine forests, fields of rosemary and bright flowers, and steep viewing points where it’s possible to look as far as Hvar. Interestingly the white stone that created both the Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the Whitehouse in Washington is from Brac.

Vis

Vis is a somewhat isolated island, but its isolation has served to preserve the island’s authenticity. Travellers flock to Vis to experience serenity on the rugged coastline, gourmet cuisine that holds strongly to Croatia’s traditional roots, and beautiful, almost entirely untouched and unspoiled nature. For wine connoisseurs there is no better island in Croatia, especially for those who favour Vugava – one of Croatia’s most loved whites – which is almost entirely cultivated on Vis. Seafood is resplendent on every corner though we prefer the chic restaurants of Vis Town to the rustic eateries of Komiza – though it’s in Komiza’s stoney backstreets and small but vibrant harbour where you’ll find many of the fishermen that ensure fresh produce each day.

Solta

The overlooked tiny Island of Solta is a beautiful slice of untampered rural island life just a stone’s throw away from Split. Cafes and restaurants can be found in the charming coastal town of Stomorska and the largest and best-maintained beach is Necujam. The locals are a friendly mix of fishermen and olive grove workers – and while there has been some modernisation on the island – very little of the modern world has managed to invade.

Beaches

Central Dalmatia’s rocky coastline offers plenty of natural, secluded beaches and hidden coves. Each town also offers well maintained man-made pebble beaches. Famous beaches include Zlatni Rat pebble beach near Bol (on Brac island) and Bacvice city beach in Split (which is a sandy beach). Picturesque sandy beaches can be found on Vis island. The Omis Riviera also offers plenty of sandy beaches, ideal for young children.

Popular Sightseeing Attractions

Primosten

A lovely old hilltop town located on a small peninsula. Primosten offers plenty of restaurants, bars and amazing beaches, a great place to spend a relaxing day.

Klis fortress

Featured in Game of Thrones, the ruins of this impressive fortress date back to Roman times. Enjoy the panoramic views over the mountains, the city and the sea from this intriguing place.

Marjan Hill

The green Marjan Hill lies right next to the old centre of Split. The long climb up the 187m high hill is definitely worth the effort when you see the breath-taking views from the top.

Blue Cave of Bisevo

The Blue Cave near the island of Bisevo is home to a beautiful natural phenomenon. Between 11am and noon the sunlight that enters the cave creates the luminous blue light that makes the cave so special.

Hvar town

The largest town on the island is the place to see and be seen. Discover the traditional Dalmatian stone houses, traffic free marble streets, the abundance of restaurants and bars and make sure you stay long enough the enjoy its vibrant nightlife.

Salona

The ruins of the ancient Roman city of Salona show you how large and powerful the city used to be. This archaeological gem is worth a visit if you are a history lover.

Omis rafting

The former pirate town of Omis is the perfect place for adventure seekers, thanks to its proximity to the Cetina river, where many experienced organizers offer rafting excursions.

September

Split Film Festival

This International Festival of New Film focusses on all genres, preferable from outside the mainstream.

Eating & Drinking

Eating

Drinking

Tap water is safe to drink. Croatian mineral water is widely available and of good quality.

Dalmatia offers excellent wines and homemade rakija (brandy).
