Day 6: Exploring Split
We left this day pretty open as the rest of the trip up to this point had been packed. It was time for a relaxing beach day! Bacvice Beach was the closest beach to us so we grabbed our towels and headed that way. We ate breakfast at one of the many cafes along the beach, Cafe Bar Zbriac.
This beach was VERY popular, with crowds as far as the eye can see. We opted to rent loungers and umbrellas, but it’s not necessary to do so. The water was clear and beautiful and there were many concessions nearby (including towels, should you need to buy one). If you don’t mind crowds, this is a good beach to visit.
We took a stroll along the beach and eventually found Firule Beach. The view was beautiful, but the beach was rocky, so we opted to stay at our sandy beach. However, if you have the time, we recommend this walk just for the view!
After a nice, long, relaxing day at the beach, we wanted to see what Split looked like during the day time. We went back to our Airbnb, freshened up, and headed back towards the Diocletian Palace. The Palace was just as beautiful in the day time, but now we had the option to climb the bell tower!
I will warn you – this is not for the faint of heart. Jenny barely made it halfway up before having to turn around, and although I’m typically not afraid of heights, this was VERY dizzying. The views at the top were totally worth it though!
Next, we headed underneath the palace and found many charming stalls filled with artwork and other various souvenirs. This is a great place to pick up a gift!
As it was going close to sunset time, we headed to the Split Ferry Port. This spot has a great view of the sun setting over the main promenade of Split!
After sunset, we grabbed dinner and drinks at Design Hostel Goli & Bosi, which is both a hostel and a restaurant with convenient outdoor seating. We had a night on the town, bouncing around the various bars Split has to offer.
