If you are vacationing, or at least stopping by beautiful Split, Croatia, in hot summer months you will want to jump into the crispy fresh Mediterranean water once in awhile. There are many beaches around Split.
The most popular beach is Bacvice, that is situated approximately a mile away from downtown Split in the direction of the ferry boat harbor. Because of its popularity Bacvice beach can be extremely crowded outside and inside of the water. Locals love to play a popular game called Picigin. Bacvice is know as spiritual home of Picigin, a unique Dalmatian sport that involves a lot of acrobatic leaping around as players try to prevent a small boat hitting the water.
Bacvice has several coffee bars and pizzeria on the beach. There are chairs and umbrellas for rent. If you like to have fun and crowd and not looking for privacy, this one is for you!
