Split Weather November Averages, Croatia
What's The Weather Like In Split in November
November comes with chills and rain aplenty, unfortunately. The temperatures go down to an average of only 12° Celsius (54° Fahrenheit), with a rising humidity and cold nights.
The lowest recorded for this month is a temperature of 8° Celsius, so make sure you pack a good coat and even a hat, you'll definitely need them. The warmer days can reach up to 16° Celsius, with only 30% chances of sun.
The days grow shorter as well, with only up to 6 hours of sunshine, and an increasing 24% chance of clouds. The barometric pressure remains steady and, as the humidity increases, the weather becomes slightly restless, producing heavy showers mostly throughout the second and third week of November.
Rainfall increases to 111mm on average, over up to 7 constant days of rain. Precipitation increases in intensity, despite the number of rainy days remaining the same as in the previous month. So don't forget the umbrella. Seriously, don't forget it. However, heavy rainfall in the mild winters is part of the reason Croatia is so beautiful, helping the country to stay luscious and green during hot summers.
The splendid deep blue sea gets colder as well, dropping to 17° Celsius (63° Fahrenheit), with icy currents now flowing freely along the Dalmatian coast line. Winter is coming, as they say, and it often starts from the sea in these regions. Luckily, despite the chances of windy days rising up to 18% on average, it's still mild and breezy, typical for the Mediterranean area.
Wind speeds of up to 6m/s barely disturb Split during this time of the year, and the humidity is something you might want to pay attention to. While it may be steady at around 51% throughout the first couple of weeks, it can jump up to as much as 86% towards the end of November, particularly during the rainy days. Remember this is a marine city, and it's bound to be wet and grim towards winter, but luckily not freezing.
Split Hotels In November
Split offers grand accommodation in a handful of 4-star hotels, most of them in the heart of the city, enclosed in UNESCO Heritage buildings. So expect vintage decoration but with excellent services and modern amenities, all part of the charm of the Dalmatian Coast.
Hotel Marmont / Azur Palace Luxury Rooms
Hotel Marmont still has rooms available from £126 per night, as do the exceptional Hotel Marul and Azur Palace Luxury Rooms, from £87 per night and £79 per night, respectively.

Split Beaches For November
Unless you're keen on admiring the foamy shoreline, distant ships, the occasional ethereal sunrise or enormous cloud blankets, there's not much to do at the beach these days.
Bacvice & Trstenik Beaches
Bacvice beach is still open, its smooth sand quite cool to the touch. Trstenik is definitely worth a visit, mainly because of its contrast of pebble and gravel against the clear waters on a shallow entry, framed by giant skies and puffy clouds. This isn't even a hyperbole of sorts, you have to see it for yourself to understand just how beautiful this beach is, even in the cool autumn.
You should also go explore the sights around Jezinac beach, located on the western shore, just under the Marjan Park Forest, flanked by pine trees on one side, and a trembling deep blue sea on the other side.
Bars And Restaurants
With most beach bars and terraces closed by this time, your best options will be in the city. And Split has plenty of good eateries and restaurants to offer, as it is one of Croatia's most noted culinary centres.
Bokeria / Kadena / Villa Spizat
New names such as Bokeria, Kadena, the sumptuous Villa Spizat and the award-winning Paradigma are all modern restaurants offering local specialties with contemporary and even daring twists and flavours added. They pay extra attention to their wine lists, importing varieties from all over the world, including Australia and California, not just Italy and France. Most importantly, the local Croatian wines are particularly wonderful all by themselves.
Nostromo / Apetit / Konoba Hvaranin
Classic restaurants such as Nostromo, Apetit and Konoba Hvaranin stay true to the original recipes and authentic Dalmatian cuisine, and it's at either of these that you want to fully immerse yourself into Croatian gastronomy. But if you're on more of a budget, you can always stop by the Buffet Fife or the Tri Volta for cheap but finger-licking good food. Or you can even shop for fresh produce and local meats at the Split Market by the Silver Gate entry to the Roman Palace.
O'Hara / Gaga
And given the chilly nights, it takes a good atmosphere in a great venue to warm up to late autumn Split! Rest assured, such venues are scattered all over the city. Most notably the O Hara and the Gaga are open throughout the entire year, and feature live music and drink deals throughout the colder months. You can also check out Fluid and the popular jazz club Ghetto, as well as the Vanilla and Hemingway by Poljud Stadium.
Things To Do In Split In Novemeber
November is once again the time of the year best suited for museums, local sightseeing trips and late night bar hopping. The historical city centre remains a must-see, and if you're staying at one of the hotels mentioned above, you're definitely bound to admire its beauty as soon as you step out.
Emperor Diocletian's Palace
Visit the Emperor Diocletian's Palace and its nooks and crannies, it's intimate but wonderful Cafe Luxor and the ancient Peristyle. If you find the time, make sure you also visit the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, the revered local saint, as well as the Temple of Jupiter, another historical gem.
Town Museum / Archaeological Museum
Most importantly, visit the Town Museum and explore its artefacts dating back to the 1300's. And don't forget the Archaeological Museum, it hosts some fascinating items as old as the ancient Greeks that once settled here.
If you're more into promenades and enjoying the beautiful sights of the Dalmatian coast, then the Marjan seafront is always a good option, as it takes you from the splendid Riva all the way up to Split's busy harbour. You can also visit the Mestrovic Gallery, home to some of Croatia's finest works of art belonging to the famous sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic.
