About
A stone's throw away from Split's Old Town, this city beach may not be the most scenic, but is a convenient spot for a quick dip. It has sun loungers, water sports equipment, and a nice sandy beach with shallow waters—great for the kids to wade in. Its easy accessibility also makes it popular during summer, so get there early if you want to bag a good spot. Stay until sundown, then head to the many restaurants and nightclubs near the beach for dinner and drinks. Many city tours of Split will include a stop at Bacvice Beach. – Tripadvisor

    Nearest with many restaurants
    Just over the hill from the harbour is the first and most popular in a string of beaches. It is quite shallow and muddy, the best spots for swimming are on the far corners. Several restaurants serve food and drinks till late evening.

    Not amazing
    We went here on our last day in Croatia to kill time before being collected for the airport. Having visited many beautiful beaches in Hvar, Stinina cove and some lovely secluded beaches in Korcula, this was a disappointing end to the trip. The sand was littered with rubbish and millions of cigarette butts. The water was murky with a lot of debris but shallow so I see the appeal for families with young children. For me It does not show Croatia in all its beauty but I get that it’s a 15 minute walk from the main town of split so I can’t be too picky

    Perfect beach for a few hours of sunbathing and swiminng
    One of the only sandy beaches in Split. It's a nice place to spend a few hours. Water is clear and good to swim in! Toilets, showers and changing cubicles on the beach. It is quite a small beach so cam gst crowded and the sand is not the best quality but perfect for a few hours swimmimg and sunbathing.

    Sandy beach
    It's sandy beach which is very unusual in Split and Croatia. It has a shallow water for quite long distance from the beach so it's good for families with small children. We walked around late when it was dark to make good photos but the people were still in the water. It's very popular and could be crowded.

I loved this beach, family oriented ( although I was with my adult daughter) and very clean. You do have to pay to rent the chairs, so we bought a large round 2 person towel on the boardwalk for $10US and used that. You can walk 200-300 yards into the sea before it’s over your head, and the water is clear until it’s deep. Small food and bar restaurant directly on the beach but nice restaurants to the left( short walk) and outdoor showers to rinse the sand off your feet. We spent an hour or so every day.

This was an easy walk from the Diocletian Palace area. The beach is long and there are quite a few restaurants in the area. They have changing “kiosks” near the beach. We came here in the evening, right before sunset and the beach was fairly crowded even then. It is a nice place to walk around even if you don’t plan to swim.

Loved this beach. I spent five happy days there in the autumn sunshine. It is clean. There is no perceptible tide and no significant currents. There are small waves. There is a lovely atmosphere there - people relaxing, playing in the shallows, swimming etc. There is also a toilet which is spotless which is very convenient.

The water is beautiful and clear and you can walk out for quite a way. The kids had a great time swimming and playing and it had no current and no waves. It is very close to the centre but the beach is not pretty. It was very busy so hard to find a spot and the sand is more like mud sand. It was okay, good if you want to swim not so good if you want to sit on a pretty beach.
Has a fair few restaurants and bars but all a bit tatty and worse for wear.

So it has sand. And there the recommendation ends. The next bay towards split has ladders by which you can directly enter the sea. The ones further away from split have white pebbles that glow shades of bright blue through the surf. So really, though this is the most popular beach, I would walk right on past it unless you absolutely, positively must have sand above all other considerations.

Filthy beach, very disappointing. Don’t waste your time. Accomodation booked and paid for was not what we expected. Booked a one bedroom apartment with fully equiped kitchen. We were provided with a studio the size of a shoe box. Could barely fit suitcases in the room. Don’t drink the tap water as advised by local pharmacist. Think twice. Stuck there for 9 days in July 2019

This beach is absolutely filthy and I do not recommend visiting. The sand is completely littered with cigarette butts and rubbish making it feel like you’re sunbathing in a grubby dump. Yes it is one of the only Sandy beaches we’ve come across but I’d rather rocky beaches that are clean than this.
