Kayaking is a beginner sport that revolves around, well, kayaking across water. Whilst it is similar to another sport called “Canoeing”, it has some key differences, mainly the sitting arrangement and number of blades on the paddle. The Kayak is a canoe-like boat that sits low-to-the-water in which the paddler sits facing forward, with the legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull themselves first with one side and then the other in rotation. Kayaks also come in various shapes and materials, inflatable and open decked kayaks gaining in popularity in recent years.

But for those of us that can get easily sunburned, we highly recommend beaches around the forest hill Marjan, as the trees offer quite a bit of shade.
About Marjan forest hill:
During your kayaking tour you are going to be going around one of Split’s most popular landmarks, the Marjan Forest hill. Enjoy a spectacular view of this notable forest hill from the comfort of a kayak. Marjan has been used by locals as early as the 3rd century, making it a favourite recreational and weekend excursion center due to it’s relaxing ambience. The forest hill holds several buildings, the institute of Oceanography and Fisheries sitting at the tip of the peninsula, along with a city Zoo that has been abandoned over the years.
An interesting thing to note is that Emperor Diocletian built his palace just a couple of minutes away from Marjan. Just like modern times, the palace-city was inhabited by up to 8000 to 10 000, people that required parks and recreational space, therefore Emperor Diocletian organized particular areas of Marjan that were close by as a park.
Over the last century or so, Marjan has become quite a symbol of Split. As the city expanded they decided to leave out Marjan out of it due to it’s rocky and difficult terrain, becoming a part of wilderness next to the very center of Split. It didn’t take long for citizens to start visiting the forest hill as a romantic getaway, along with being a rather popular spot to go swimming due to it’s secluded and shade covered locations. There’s also a legend that Marjan is actually a dormant volcano, evidence being that they found sulphuric water at the base of the hill; which is commonly found near volcanic areas.
Marjan has become a symbol of Split in the last century and a half, before that it was considered an ordinary part of the landscape. As the city grew, however, it was left out because of its rocky and difficult terrain, and became, in effect, a part of the wilderness next to the very center of the city. Soon the citizens started to frequent it as a picnic spot and a romantic retreat, its many beaches adding to its popularity as well.
