The Island at Sibenik in Yugoslavia in 1966


Sibenik is about halfway up the Adriatic coast of former Yugoslavia (as it was in 1966). It has no beach in the port town itself and so one took a small boat out to the small offshore island which served as the town’s ‘beach’ – although it was not so much a beach (no sand) but a paved esplanade to the water’s edge and behind that a cool Mediterranean conifer hinterland. Tony Sargeant stayed there with Gill Parks for some weeks in the summer of 1966.
