Just a kilometer from the city center, Bačvice beach tends to get very crowded. Reason? Its location and the shallow water which is great for playing the local "sport" called picigin. Summer or winter, you will always find at least one group of locals showing their skills of keeping the small ball in the air. If you prefer less crowds check out the other beaches in Split.
