Bacvice is the go-to beach in Split, and is perhaps one of the most popular sets of shores in Croatia. It’s been awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness, and is part-sand, part-pavement. Nearby are bars and restaurants, while on the sand are sunbeds and umbrellas. Bacvice is also the original home of the beach game known as picigin, which is still frequently played on the shores today. The object of the game is to keep a small ball from touching the water, but the trick is, like volleyball, players bounce the ball in their hands instead of catching it.
