“If you want privacy at the beach, avoid Bačvice (pron. Batchweetseh). If you want to meet people, this is the first choice. It's the central city beach, popular among locals and young tourists looking for some fun. It's a sandy beach, with sunbeds and parasols (maybe too many of them, but they are usually all taken). For people in Split, Bačvice is part of their city's identity, and if you see some guys (and sometimes girls) running around and jumping while trying to hit a small ball with a palm, it's picigin. This beach game was born here because the solid sandy seabed is perfect for short sprints and parades. It's also probably the only beach game protected as a cultural heritage. Bačvice lives 24/7 during the season because many bars and clubs are one of the biggest nightlife zones in town, including Split Beach Festival. Seawater is surprisingly clear, for a beach with so many people, except later in the afternoon.”

“Bokeria opened in 2014 as a family restaurant where all members of the family work. The ambience and design of the restaurant can accommodate all types of events. The music that has been selected, the murmuring of the crowded restaurant, and the unique lighting in the evening attract younger guests looking for fun and an outstanding offer of Croatia wines. Bokeria devotes special attention to the quality of its ingredients, which dictates the offer, while the chefs work to ensure that the food is ever more innovative and interesting. The menu is changed several times a year, and depends on the availability of seasonal ingredients.”
