Luxury Split Riviera Holidays

Pebbled bays, pine-backed coves and a Roman palace

Split Riviera

Holidays in Split Riviera take you to the glorious golden Adriatic coastline of Croatia. It’s full of whitewashed buildings with terracotta roofs and pretty little fishing villages just waiting to be explored. Couples will love the chance to get away and explore secluded islands and the winding narrow streets of old towns, while families will find lots here for them too. Head to the beach and spend the day trying water sports, or make the most of the water parks and boat trips.

The crowning attraction of Split Riviera is the historic town of Split. It’s composed of two areas, including a historic old town where little streets weave around town squares and house boutiques and luxury restaurants. In the evenings the old town has a few lively bars and rooftop terraces where you can enjoy a drink or two, while the new area of the town hosts clubs and livelier bars.

Culture lovers can immerse themselves in the beauty of the area, while there are opportunities to simply relax on the beach. If you fancy a boat trip there are island hopping options which will take you to one of the many islands located off the coast of Croatia. Hvar is home to a pretty little town and quaint harbour, as well as having five star hotels and forested hills just waiting to be explored.

Flight Information

Flights from the UK to the Split Riviera take around 2 hours 20 minutes.

When to go

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit, as crowds are smaller but the weather still tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).


Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
