Although Split is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia, there is one feature that it chronically lacks – nudist beach. The nearest official are in Ruskamen between Omiš and Makarska, or within Medena resort near Trogir. There are, of course, also those on some of the islands, especially on Hvar.
Still, if you like to swim in natural bathing suit, there is a solution. It’s not completely legal, but tolerated. Or, to sound more benevolent, Split does have unofficial nudist beach. It’s on the southern shores of Marjan park forest, western from the family oriented Kasjuni beach, on the spot locally known as Pećine (Caves, although there is no single cave there). It’s well hidden among rocks both on shore and in the sea, but still pretty easily accessible. For exact location, here is our map. And it’s there for decades, no matter how many attempts were made to throw nudists out of there. For example, few years ago city authorities designated that place as the beach for pets, which caused some turmoil between nudists and pets owners who didn’t want to share their family moments with “inappropriate” bathers, but nudists argued that they came there first.
So, this beach is officialy unofficial, and theoretically it goes under public decency rules, but nobody remembers a single case when anyone was prosecuted. Beach is not very crowded, and most people going there know each other, keeping it low profile. However, clean sea and spectacular view from the sea to Marjan slopes make this place worth of visiting, if you are a nudism dedicated. It’s not hard to reach this place, by car drive to Kasjuni cove, park there and walk by the sea. By bus, take the number 12 and ask for Kasjuni station, it takes 10 minute walk to the beach. Bus network is available here. Or, you can rent a bike, or just plainly walk, but it will be much longer.
