Ferry to Brac and Hvar
In Split you will find the harbour (cruises and ferries), the bus station and railway station all in one place, within walking distance of the historic centre and Bacvice Beach. The port of Split is a busy place, but you’ll need to be there for the ferries heading to the islands of Brac and Hvar. Jadrolinija is the company with the largest fleet and a reliable provider, it’s probably your best choice. The best known routes are Split – Supetar (Brac, 50 minutes), Split – Stari Grad (Hvar, 2 hours) and Split – Hvar Town (Hvar, 1 hour and 5 minutes). It is possible to bring a car on the first two mentioned services. Split – Hvar Town is a catamaran service and only accessible to persons. It is best to buy tickets before departure through the website of Jadrolinija.

Bus services

Pleso Prijevoz to Split

There is a direct connection between Split Airport and the centre of Split, operated by Pleso Prijevoz. In theory, the bus runs every half hour, in practice the bus leaves from the airport when it is fully occupied. It may be later or earlier, the timetable towards the airport is more reliable. The lower frequency and the higher price compared to bus number 37 is a disadvantage in relation to public transport. The shorter travel time (35 minutes) and the ability to get on and off the bus in the centre of Split is an advantage. The final stop of the bus is Split Main Bus Station near the main railway station and port of Split. Please consult website and timetable Pleso Prijevoz for more information.
