Split and its surrounding area is known for its pristine and beautiful beaches, from sandy beaches in the city that are suitable for families with children, to almost untouched open pebbled beaches suitable for adventure and nature lovers. In Split itself, under the Marjan, the beaches are named Bene, Kašjuni and Kaštelet; locals will tell you that without doubt the most famous beach is Bačvice, where you can play the traditional home game picigin. The islands within the Split archipelago are home to some sublime beaches; you can swim and have fun on the scenic beach Zlatni rat in Bol, on the island of Brač. This picturesque beach has been declared the most beautiful beach in Croatia and it is unique in that it changes its shape and position, depending from where the wind blows. The island of Biševo on the south side hides the Porat Bay which is remotely visited as it can only be reached by boat. The bays around the little island Proizd, near Korčula, bare the unusual sight of white rocks, a turquoise sea and fresh salty aroma in the air!
On the way to Makarska, visitors will come across a series of charming beaches, we simply have to highlight Punta Beach or the so-called Velika plaža in Omiš, Punta Rata in Brela, and Nikolina Beach in Baška Voda. For those craving some Full Monty, a nudist beach we definitely recommend is the Nugal Beach on the Osejava peninsula.
Last but not least, for something more tranquil there are wellness centres with vast services including (massage, sauna, swimming pools, jacuzzi and spas) which can be found within the five star hotels and resorts which are in the vicinity of Split.
So there’s plenty to do from leisure to adventure, pick n choose and enjoy the cruise!
