Bene - beach surrounded by natural beauty
Bene is a beach located in the forest park Marjan. It is characterized by natural beauty.

But unlike Žnjan or Bačvice, Bene is harder to reach. They can't be reached directly by car. You need to leave car two kilometers far away, at the entrance of park forest Marjan.
Then you need to continue by foot through the Marian Park Forest, which is not a bad idea at all because Marjan is really beautiful.
Another option to reach Bene is by local bus number 12, which circulates around Marjan all the time. It's starting point is Split Riva, near the church of St. Francis.
Next to the beach there is a restaurant called Benedict. At the restaurant you can dine or take a pizza at affordable prices. At higher prices you can take some of the Mediterranean specialties that include fish from the Adriatic sea and seafood.
Right next to the restaurant there are football and tennis courts, trim tracks and bicycle trail.

Be careful with the fire at the beach because the danger of fire in the park during the summer is high.
