Best time to visit Split

When is The Best Time to Visit Split?

The best time to visit Split is during its shoulder seasons of May to June and September to October. The weather is perfect for outdoor activities, and you'll be able to experience all the city's sights without the crowds. Prices are also cheaper compared to the summer months, and you'll scoop up deals on flights and accommodation.

If you are planning to visit Split during July and August, prepare yourself for a rather chaotic atmosphere. The city is bursting with tourists, and it's nearly impossible to get onto a ferry without a prior booking. Book your accommodation several months in advance to avoid the seasonal price hike and to ensure availability.

But if you can handle the hot weather and crowds, it's one of the best times to experience Split's many cultural events and cosmopolitan nightlife.

Split's low season is from November to April. Many hotels and attractions close for the winter months and temperatures drop to 7°C. Budget travellers will be able to score low-cost flights and accommodation deals from the hotels that stay open. With the summer crowds gone, it's also one of the most authentic times to visit and experience how the locals live.
