Best Times to Visit Split

The best time to visit Split is September and October when tourist crowds have dispersed and the Adriatic Sea is still warm enough for a dip. By November, temperatures tend to drop into the 40s and 50s, where they'll hover for the rest of the winter. The months between April and June see rising temperatures and crowds, but the city's peak season is in July when the weather is hot and both tourist levels and rates for accommodations, flights and rental cars are at their highest.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

September-October

These fall months are a great way to enjoy Split without the tourist throngs characteristic of summertime. Plus, with high average temperatures in the 60s and 70s, you can still enjoy some time at the beach. Water temperatures generally stay in the upper 60s and mid-70s this time of year.

Key Events:

November-March

The months that stretch between November and March make up Split's low season. With average temperatures that bounce between the 40s and 50s, travelers will find it too chilly to take a dip in the sea, but they'll be pleasantly surprised by the lower accommodation rates. 

Key Events:

April-June

Spring to early summer is another shoulder season in Split, where room rates and tourist crowds are starting to rise, but they're not at their all-time highs. The weather, however, is just about perfect: Average highs inch up from the 60s to the 70s, and the sea welcomes swimmers with temps in the 60s and 70s as well.

Key Events:

July-August

These months are peak season in Split, and you'll find that hotel prices and temperatures are at year-round highs this time of year to accommodate the many families that come during school breaks. Still, it's easy to see why so many travelers want to visit this time of year: Sea temps average in the mid-70s, which are ideal conditions for swimming and going on boat tours.
