Žnjan is a relatively new neighborhood to the east of Split center. Žnjan has quite a few beaches spanning it shores and there are many activities for both adults and children that make this the to-go beach all year round, whether you are swimming or not.
There are endless activities for kids such as trampolines, bouncy castles, electric scooters for kids, an aquazone, paddleboats, and an indoor games hall. Click here to read how your kids (and yourself) can get the most out of a day on Žnjan.
There are a few cafés dotting the coast such as the popular Baracuda bar, which is popular amongst the surfing community. Along the road you will also find pancake and ice cream stalls in the summer time. Žnjan is also Split’s kiteboarding and windsurfing beach during the off-season.

There are no beach beds or umbrellas for hire so we suggest you bring your own gear. Alternatively, continue your walk westbound for another five minutes to get to Trstenik beach for a little deluxe beach lounging on Radisson BLU Resort’s VIP deck with DJ tunes and four-star service with light fare from Mistral restaurant across the path. For 80KN you can chill on the deck with a sunbed and umbrella and unlimited warm beverages and ice tea. You can also just opt for a sunbed on the pebble beach next to it for 30KN per day.
To reach Žnjan, head east on Poljička cesta and turn right on Velebitska until you reach the coastline.
