When getting off the cruise ships with the terminal exit at your 6 o'clock, the Riva Harbor with its inviting promenade is at your 9 o' clock. Cross the walkways carefully as pedestrians and vehicles vie for shared road space. Comfortable benches shaded by giant palm trees make Riva promenade and harbor an inviting place to relax, enjoy a gelato... More

Beautiful walks along the harbour in front of the Palace. Lots of summer evening entertainment. Avoid the restaurants, better value and better food to be had in the old town itself.

Beautiful, spacious, large, open and very welcoming. Sunsets are simply gorgeous, walking along the harbour. Just stunning, just do it.

The harbour is nice looking and close to the old city and the night life. But it smells to much, so its easier to just escape to the beaches or the old city.

a nice walk along the harbour, plenty of bars and restaurants. Some have water sprays to keep the heat down.

The Riva is full of life. Concerts, food, lots of gelato, shopping, people watching, boats coming and going, and a place just to walk, browse and be thankful that you are lucky enough to enjoy this slice of heaven in a wonderful country

Very nice promenade and sea front. Great views of the sea and also the town. Excellent for people watching with loads of bars and restaurants. Very new and clean and well presented. Lots of activities in the area, skateboarding, segways, bikes and babes in bikinis - what's not to like?

The authorities in Split have done a really good job of creating a long, wide boulevard stretching SE from the highly impressive Republic Square alongside the harbour. Here people can stroll during the day and in the evenings with the water lapping on one side near the gardens and flower beds - and cafes and bars on the other under... More

Depending on your preferences you might choose this area for your dinner restaurant over the places inside the city walls. There is plenty to watch from people to boats and a little breeze could make it a bit more comfortable during hot days.
