Krka National Park and Plitvice lakes are definitely among the best day excursions from Split. Krka Waterfalls National Park has a stunning panorama. It takes around an hour and a half if you drive. Public transport takes longer so we always recommend to book a daily tour to National Park. Makarska is a great place for strolls and you may also want to hike at Mt. Biokovo. The promenade by the harbor is beautiful. Makarska is much smaller than Split but also cuter. It takes an hour or so by car from the town. Salona was once a Roman city and a pilgrimage site for Christians. It is now in ruins but still worth a visit. You can plan a day to explore Trogir and Salona ancient Roman town.
You should visit Brela Beach. It is considered by many, Croatians and tourists, to be the most amazing beach in the country. Brela Beach takes less than an hour from Split by car. Baška Voda is another scenic beach as well as a port. The mountainous backdrop adds to the beauty of Baška Voda. You can take a bus or rent a car and be there in an hour. Hvar Town is one of the popular day trips from Split. It is on Hvar Island. The harbor is lovely, the Venetian architecture is awesome and you can also consider a day tour that shall also take you to Pakleni Island and Blue Cave. This complete trip will take a full day and you will be back at Split in the evening.
3. Trogir World Heritage sites
Trogir and Diocletian palace are both World Heritage Sites recognized by UNESCO. It is just half an hour from Split. Public transport or a bus will take around forty five minutes. The sheer architectural brilliance at display in Trogir is reason enough to plan a day trip from Split.
