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.

very peaceful walk along the harbor. a good number of restaurants along the way along with some gelato/ice cream stands. Good glimses of amazing boats/yachts that you can only dream of owning. Not much shade and if you are walking during the day it can get blazing hot. Also very beautiful at night with the all the lights...

We are far from resort, beach combing, sea side kind of people but found this Riva to be extremely welcoming, relaxing, airy and beautiful. Perhaps because there were no roller blades, skate boards, joggers, magician or mimes, annoying poor musicians, throngs of souvenir shops...

The harbour is average - it smells like sulphur (due to the thermal springs they still have) which emits the same odor as rotten eggs and the area is completely "restaurantized"! Their patios extend intrusively into all corners of public space and you can't really enjoy a stroll along the waterfront without being harassed by overzealous waiters trying to get... More

Flowers and Palm Trees line this extensive seaside promenade in Split. Restaurants (over-priced) and shops line the landward side.
