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.

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.

By far the best beach for a swim. While it is a sand beach, the swimming area is very large and hence my preference. Visited 3 beaches but swam only here.

This is a 10-15min walk from the old town in Split and probably the closest you can find to a beach, but it's not great. sand isn't clean, it's quite muddy, and there are nice options to sunbathe on the concrete ... I would look further afield !

Was decently busy as it is mid-September, but at such a short walk from the city centre for beautiful views, lovely warm shallow water and plenty of both sandy and grassy places to sit, who can complain! Would definitely recommend for an afternoon!

Unfortunately went to Bacvice on June 22 which coincided with end of school year visit to Bacvice by what seemed like every student in Split. Wall to wall teenagers, no room to put down a towel, although the fun part was watching the kids challenge each other to jumping off rocks and swimming races.
