Split Holidays

holidays in split

Superb city base for Croatia beaches and islands

Split is ideal for those wishing to combine historic and cultural sites with an animated lively city with an enjoyable mix of the traditional and modern. The city’s central position means it’s ideally placed for exploring the superb beaches of the Makarska Riviera. It also provides a fine base for visiting the islands of Hvar and Brac. Regular ferries from Split run along the coast to neighbouring beach resorts and the Adriatic islands.

An enjoyable animated city

One of the attractions of this resort is the wonderful old town of Split, dominated by spectacular historic and cultural remains within the walls of the classical Diocletian Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other attractions are the lovely squares, the harbour waterfront and marina, and an attractive wide seafront promenade. There is an extensive range of cafes, wine cellars, restaurants and family tavernas serving local specialities and excellent Croatian wines. The nightlife is quite a lively, youthful affair and the city is pleasantly animated by day and by night. Split also offers fine museums and galleries and plenty of cultural life, from folklore shows to classical and pop concerts. Take a visit to the Marjan Forest Park and zoo for superb views of the city and the Adriatic Islands.

Plenty of choice in and around the city

Split has a refreshing and exceptionally sunny Mediterranean climate and mild winters. There are plenty of beaches nearby - for a sandy beach, try Bacvice Beach in the city centre. Other convenient beaches close to the city centre are Firule and Ovcice - beaches can be found in both directions from the city centre. There are also excellent facilities for watersports like sailing and windsurfing whilst your holiday here could also include rewarding walking, particularly around Mount Biokovo.

Weather in Split 

Split is located on the Adriatic Coast known as one of the warmest areas of the northern Mediterranean. Summers are long and hot with temperatures reaching 30C and over. The average sunshine levels are 2700 hours annually, meaning warm weather for much of the year with low to moderate humidity levels. Rainfall is distributed evenly throughout the year although Croatia is slightly wetter than other Mediterranean locations. Winters are mild and short with temperatures of around 12C, which is comparable to a warm UK spring.
