Baska Voda

It's hard to run out of sights to see in Split but if you do, Split makes an excellent base to explore central Dalmatia. The region is easy to explore on your own but for a more personal experience and to save time, consider hiring a private guide who can take you to out-of-the-way places as well as the regional highlights. For a small group tour, I recommend Pelican Tours which provides personalized tours with a local flavour.

Dalmatia Ferry Guide

It's helpful to have a car in Split but not necessary as Split is well connected by bus with other coastal destinations. Although ferries to the islands radiate out from Split, the ferry schedules and distances make it tricky to use Split as a base for visiting the islands of Hvar, Korcula and Vis. It works better in the summer season and is nearly impossible off-season.

Here are some ideas for day trips from Split:

Brac Island
It's the largest island closest to Split. A number of daily ferries connect Split with Supetar and passenger boats go to Bol. In summer only, it's now possible to take a passenger boat from Split to Milna on Brac Island in the morning, stay the day and return to Split in early evening.

Brela Beach
It might be Croatia's most beautiful beach and is less than an hour by bus.

Baska Voda
This is another pretty port and beach scenically settled at the foot of mountains and easily accessible by car or bus.

In summer only, it's now possible to take a passenger boat from Split to Hvar in the morning, stay the day and return to Split in early evening.

Krka National Park
It's possible to visit this spectacular park of lakes and waterfalls by car as a day trip. Or, take a tour.

Makarska is a smaller and cuter version of Split with a nice harbourside promenade. Split locals go there on Sunday for a stroll. It's only about an hour by car or bus.

Ramble amid the Roman ruins of this once formidable city that is easily reachable by Split public buses.

This scenic series of coastal villages arose around 15th and 16th-century castles. Enjoy the small-town atmosphere, the castles and the beaches.

Beat a quick retreat from busy Split by taking a ferry to this nearby island.


This architectural gem has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Getting there is a breeze either by car (1/2 hour) or by public bus (3/4 hour)

You'll know it when you see it. The rocks will be towering over you next to the Cetina river. And, it's a quick bus ride from Split.
