Luxury Split Riviera Holidays

Pebbled bays, pine-backed coves and a Roman palace

Split Riviera

The Split Riviera is one of Croatia's most alluring holiday spots. The city of Split sits on the Adriatic coast, and counts a lively line-up of events and an absorbing Roman history among its charms. First founded by the Emperor Diocletian, his bequests are some of Europe's most striking Roman remains, and include a UNESCO-listed palace, an impressive cathedral and a Colosseum-rivalling amphitheatre.

The beaches are another string in the Split Riviera's bow  expect beautiful waterfronts, crystal-clear coves and hidden sandy spots. Offshore, there's a constellation of islands to lure day trippers. There's Hvar, which pulls in an A-list crowd to its bars and restaurants (they fit neatly between Gothic palaces and spotless stone streets). Beach lovers should reserve a day for Brac. The island is home to Bol beach, an arrow-shaped slice of white pebbles that acts as Croatia's poster child.

Flight Information

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.
