November is one of the months with the lowest tourist activity in Croatia. Many excursions, especially those including island hopping tours, are paused till April. The weather is too fresh for swimming, even for the most courageous swimmers.

Nevertheless, some people look for this kind of travel experience. Especially couples may appreciate a more intimate and romantic atmosphere in popular destinations. Furthermore, accommodation prices are much lower than during the summer season. Late autumn brings nice sunset colours, which is a phenomenon enjoyed by nature lovers.

Split old town in November 2023

Split old town and its Diocletian's Palace are charming places these days. As you can see from the photos, there are no crowds which are frequent during the summer season. You can visit the beautiful Split Peristyle and admire its magnificent historical appearance in all of its details.

Split Riva is another beautiful place to visit in November. It features a more local experience with only a few visitors around.
Riva is a perfect spot for an early romantic walk with stunning sunset colours.

With sea temperatures below 20 degrees Celsius, there are not many swimmers on the beaches these days. However, some of the beach bars may be a perfect spot for having a coffee or a beer. I would recommend the Tennis bar, a pleasurable place located just above the beach Firule.

Marjan is the all-year-long perfect spot for the recreation of locals and visitors of Split.
If you are ready for some uphill walking, I recommend taking the so-called "Marjan Stairs", located on Riva, in the vicinity of the church of St. Francis.

The island hopping tour, which is the most famous excursion from Split, will not be available till April.
Another attraction that is closed for visitors is Biokovo Skylwak, a glamorous promenade located above Tucepi in Makarska Riviera.

However, there are a few excursions which are worth taking these days.
The first one is a visit to the magnificent UNESCO town Trogir and its masterpiece Cathedral of St. Lawrence.
Another appealing UNESCO town is Sibenik, located only an hour and a half drive from Split. The most important visitor points in Sibenik are the fortresses and the Cathedral of St. James.
