The Split Riviera is an area in central Dalmatia in Croatia which gets its name from the city of Split that is found right in the centre.
Bordered by the Mosor mountains and Kozjak, this part of Croatia offers both coastline and mainland cities to tourists and is a great place to spend a longer holiday travelling from place to place.
The city of Split and its surrounding countryside is a great place to stay if you want to explore Croatia’s second-largest city and its nearby towns and islands. Take a look at the selection of villas we have available in the area below.

About Split Riviera

The city of Split started its life as a Greek settlement and expanded when the Roman emperor Diocletian ordered that a retirement residence be built in 295 AD. Split grew from there, hosting a wide variety of conquerors over the years and becoming a top tourist destination in the 20th century.

Best Time to Visit

Many people say that the summer months are the best time to visit Croatia, and if you’re looking for really hot weather then you’ll probably enjoy Split the most if you visit between June and August. However, to avoid excessive crowds but still get the chance to enjoy very warm and dry weather, we recommend that you visit at the start of autumn in either September or October.

Best Things To Do In

Split is a haven for sightseeing, so one of the best things to do with your time whilst you’re in the city is to make a list of top attractions and start ticking them off as you explore. It’s also an ideal place to visit nearby islands from, with a large port and many brilliant ferry services to places like Šolta, Hvar and Brač.

Best Places To Go In

The Diocletian’s Palace complex is undoubtedly one of the best places to go in Split; an incredible example of ancient Roman architecture with plenty of highlights and stories to learn. The city is also home to numerous museums, offering insight into everything from Croatia’s maritime history to a museum dedicated to small models of frogs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Split Riviera

Is Split or Dubrovnik better?

Split and Dubrovnik are two of Croatia’s most popular destinations, and many travellers find themselves trying to choose between the two. Split is the better destination for nightlife and is better positioned to see more of the country, whereas Dubrovnik is a better destination for food, history and famous sightseeing spots to tick off your bucket list.

Is Split a party town?

Although not the top destination in Croatia for partying, Split is known as being something of a party town. Certain areas of the city will be very busy and noisy in the evenings, but it is easy to avoid getting caught up in this if loud nights out aren’t your thing.

Does Split have a beach?

There are numerous different beaches in Split. Many of these beaches are pebbly, but there are a couple with soft sand that are ideal if you want to spend a day by the sea.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
