Split, Croatia

The town has many Hotels and resorts along the coast, the perfect destinations for a seas-side beach holiday with plenty to do in the evenings when the temperature gets more moderate. The most famous beach is ‘Bacvice’ beach, a shallow sand beach, the perfect family beach but with a lot of bars and social happenings to offer. Every year a contest of ‘picigin’ is held in the shallow water of Bacvice beach. Picigin is a local water sport where a small ball has to be prevented to touch the water, a lot of manoeuvring is involved and it’s is the most important happening for the inhabitants of Split!
