Things to Do
Day trip to Krka: Only an hour away, the Krka Waterfalls are amazing. Unlike Plitvice National Parks, you can swim in the water!
Rent bikes: Rent bikes in town and head to Park Suma Marjan. There's tons of hidden beaches. We highly recommend getting a cabana at Plaza Kasjuni for super cheap.
Walk the Promenade: A sunset here is unlike any other.
Day trip to the Blue Caves: A long jet boat ride away, you can coast through beautiful glowing caves.
Wander the markets: Split has fresh fruits and veggies, super corny touristy gifts, and awesome local trinkets.
Places to Eat
Brasserie on 7: Crisp white fish, located right on the promenade and has above-par service with buzzer buttons. They team up with Hostel Booze and Snooze for a 10% discount.
Luke Ice Cream: We know, there's gelato everywhere. But I promise you, this stuff is the best.
Restaurant Dvor: Upscale, outdoor restaurant with incredible views.
Tip: Get the black risotto! It's a Croatian specialty
Places to Drink
Charlie's Bar: It's a backpacker bar. It'll be overflowed with drunken twenty somethings, but it's cheap and fun. A good start to the night.
Inbox: This outdoor bar is ridiculously fun. On any given night they have a a live DJ, electronic music, and lights flashing through the trees.
Terminal F: Careful, this place has one of the best Vodka-Redbull concoctions we've ever tasted. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Zenta: If you want to stay up till 5 a.m. dancing in a club environment, this is the place for you.
Club Vanilla: Last party stop on Yacht Week, Friday's are guaranteed wild. Bottle service is available if you want to ball out.
Places to Stay
Booze and Snooze Hostel: This is the party hostel. Guaranteed to host a pre-game, bar crawl, and people who want to drink. Don't be surprised if you're woken up late at night. Front desk was super friendly and they have great deals with local restaurants and bars. PS: you're not locked in the bathroom, the doors slide.
Split Central Silver Hostel: This hostel is right off the promenade next to a tourism agency for quick bookings and multiple gelato shops. Clean, quiet, and an overall good place to stay.
Uber: All of Croatia has Uber, but it's important to note they also have Uber Water. Yes, it's pricey, but if you're willing to splurge taking a boat as a taxi is pretty awesome.
To/From the Airport: Take the bus. Don't get ripped off by young guys cutting you a deal - it's not that much faster. The bus costs less than $5 and can be booked on the spot. You can also reserve in advance from their office in Split, which we would recommend because they can fill up.
