This is one of the best periods to visit this ancient town if swimming and bathing is not the primary reason for your trip.
The weather is still rather cool but it could happen that in these months, specially in April you can be the first to enjoy the foretaste of summer.
Throughout the year, including these months, you can always find the braver swimmers playing the popular picigin game on legendary sandy Bacvice beach.
Visiting Split in:
Even if it will be not your case, it’s the only period when Split is relatively empty of visitors and the weather is good enough to perfectly enjoy your vacation.
This spring period is also a perfect for outdoor activities on your own, as organized activity tours will not start before May or June.
Daily temperatures go up considerably particularly in April. This is the great time for hopping the nearby islands and small towns (Bol, Stari Grad, Hvar, Jelsa).
You might find them rather lethargic in this period or difficulty in finding appropriate ferry timetable schedule as Jadrolinja is still on winter ferry timetable.

The difference between these spring months are more evident in number of sunshine hours, in March 186.8 (more than 7 days) while April is sunnier with 217.2 hours (more than 9 days).
Older generation’s beliefs associate the March with three ‘Dark bura wind days’. They go so far to predict three dates in March in which the storm will occur. Usually 7th, 17 and 27th are referred, and in some places on Central Dalmatian islands dates 7th, 14tn and 27th.
March is known as a month with the frequent conflict between two seasons, winter and spring. It is also on of the windiest months of the Adriatic sea.
I must say that both are right, at least in number of “Dark bura storms’. There are two types of Bura wind as explained on my coast winds page!
