When we were in Croatia (Istria) last June, all the locals had beach shoes for those pebbly beaches. Hope you have something with you. I used my Tevas.

Yeah, the buoyancy in the Mediterranean is quite noticeable.

Very interesting. I think the Baltic is just the opposite...less salty than the Atlantic, because of less evaporation; more fresh water input. The Baltic is usually warm, if not buoyant.

With your comment Dennis, I googled an answer which described the geologic history and likely future of the Mediterranean Sea.

....Even today, the Mediterranean is considerably saltier than the North Atlantic due to its near isolation by the Strait of Gibraltar and its high rate of evaporation....

We have some great inov8 beach shoes that, unfortunately, are out of production. Just the thing for these rocky beaches. The rocks are small, not sharp, but it’s nicer with shoes. Not having sand in the beaches turns out to be really fine. No sand to rinse off, get stuck in shorts or shoes. Really nice swimming.
