Bacvice attractions

Bacvice is sandy beach, with sand being very soft. It is pleasing to walk on it and enter the sea.
Water is shallow even 100 meters away from the coast. That means it's ideal for having fun and playing water sports.
Bacvice is place of birth of game called picigin, which is part of UNESCO non-material heritage. The game is played by throwing a small ball to the other players, in shallow water. The ball must not enter the sea, and aim of the game is to keep it up in the air as much as possible.
Every year in Split is held Picigin World Cup. Croatian team usually wins.

Except sandy part, the beach features concrete part, so choose one that you like more.
One of the drawbacks during summer months is that beach is pretty crowded, so if you do not like a crowd, visit the beach early in the morning.
Just like other beaches in Split, Bacvice features beach bars, rental of sun loungers, jet ski rental, fast food and restaurants.
