A great (and remarkably clean) harbour with cafes all along the esplanade. We enjoyed having coffee (any time of day or night) and just watching the parade of life passing. The harbour is beatifically any time of day but especially at sunset. For a coffee (a handful of Kuna) its a worthwhile stop.

This is a busy harbour with ferries, cruise ships, working boat and coastal cruisers coming and going all the time. Walk from one end to the other, spend some time in one of the cafes on the east side and watch the locals and tourists as they work and sightsee.

Choose one of the stone seats, and enjoy the amazing landscape, the white of the marble, the fantastic blue sea, the cruise ships, the palace. If you like beer, ask for an iced Karlovacka, or instead, try the famous croatian ice cream.

A brilliant place to hang out either at the many cafes and restaurants or on the harbour wall. You'll probably end up here a lot!

Relaxed place to walk and ebjoy the views of the islands seaward, or of the Marjan peninsular to the west or the cityscape of old Split. A wealth of cafes, stalls, bars and restaurants in which to relax and engage with the locals.
