The Littoral Banovina or Littoral Banate (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian: Primorska banovina) was a province (banovina) of the Kingdom of Yugoslaviamarker between 1929 and 1939. This province consisted of much of the historical region of Dalmatia, now in Croatiamarker, and parts of present-day Bosnia and Herzegovinamarker and was named for its coastal (maritime) location. The capital city of the Littoral Banovina was Splitmarker.


According to the 1931 Constitution of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia,
The Littoral Banovina is bounded on the north by the southern boundaries already drawn of the Sava and Vrbas Banovinas as far as the intersection of the limits of the three districts of Jajce, Bugojnomarker, and Travnikmarker (Rakovce, hill 1217). From this point the boundary of the Banovina follows the eastern border of the district of Bugojno, then the northern boundary of the district of Konjicmarker, to continue along the eastern boundary of the districts of Konjic and Mostarmarker up to the intersection of the boundaries of the districts of Mostar, Stolacmarker, and Nevesinjemarker. It then continues along the eastern boundary of the district of Stolac, which it includes. On the Adriaticmarker, the boundary of the Banovina passes through the Neretvamarker and Pelješacmarker channels to join the maritime frontier of the State.


In 1939, the Littoral Banovina was merged with the Sava Banovina and parts of neighboring provinces to create the Banovina of Croatia.

In 1941, the World War II Axis Powers occupied the former area of the Littoral Banovina. Coastal areas from Splitmarker to Zadarmarker (Zara) were annexed by Fascist Italy with the remainder becoming a part of the Independent State of Croatiamarker. Following World War II, the region was divided between Croatiamarker and Bosnia and Herzegovinamarker within a federal Communist Yugoslaviamarker.
