Split's most popular sandy spot, Bacvice Beach provides a great setting for swimming, sunbathing, enjoying a few cold drinks, and playing "picigin," a traditional ball game played only in this part of Croatia. You'll find showers and changing rooms at both ends of this lively tourist attraction. If you're a tennis fan, note the nearby club, where Wimbledon champ Goran Ivanisevic perfected his shots and famous serve.

  • I give it 5 stars because it is easy to walk on, one of the few sandy beaches as we were told but maybe to much people in small space. There are coffee places around and people can rent lying benches ...  more »

  • Split is a very popular tourist destination at the summer days. The beach is not large enough for all those people who visited it. As a result it is crowded and not clear enough. A better option for swimming as many people do, is to stay around the marina, or even better visit a seaside bar with sunbeds and umprellas (stairs like the ones at the swimming pools exist).
  • Still super crowded after the sun went down and definitely sandy but only if you consider sand to be composed of 40% cigarettes, 10% miscellaneous trash, and 50% sand(but really isn't sand mostly mud). One of the most disgusting beaches in pretty much most parts of the world, and absolutely in Croatia. Do not recommend at all. We weren't even being that picky and it was this disappointing.
  • Nice place, hot water, huge shallow sandy area in water, but also very crowded.
  • Not the cleanest beach. Offers shallow waters and is surrounded by lots of amenities: food, drink, and toilets. Gets very busy in peak season - if you keep travelling east you will get to quieter pebble beaches.
  • I love this place! 💘😄
