Split is indeed a stunning city, especially if you look down from above. We did some drone videos of Split top attractions. Here they are:
Split old town, the Riva and the harbour
It has a full view of the Marjan Forest Park with pine forests and cliffs. The best way to reach it is by hiking over the Marjan Hill. That way, you get to enjoy the pine forests, the panoramic views from Marjan Hill and jumping into the refreshing crystal water at the end.
Beaches in Marjan Forest Park
These are our "local" beaches, attracting mostly locals. They are rocky but much quieter. We love looking at the mountains in the distance while swimming in the transparent emerald water.
Bacvice Beach, Ovcice Beach and Firule Beach
These three connected beaches are near Split Ferry Terminal. Other than Ovcice, the other two are actually sandy beaches.
