Beaches in the Mediterranean aren’t exactly what one might expect. I remember my surprise decades ago when I first went to a beach on Capri, that most fabulous place on earth to go to the beach. It was all rocks and pebbles, not a grain of sand to be seen. We saw it last summer in Nice, where there’s a mile-long promenade but all rocks. And that’s our experience here on the Dalmatian Coast so far – rocks, cement, pebbles – but no sand.
Mind you, I’m not complaining. At all. This is unbelievably beautiful. Yesterday we went to two beaches on either side of the main port in Split, one in the morning, one after lunch. They were both spectacular. The water is just perfect, the views are amazing, the sun is warm. This is really the good life.
But don’t expect sand.
