The history geek in me loves seeing images of abandoned buildings. I think it’s one of those “if these walls could talk” kind of things. I’m fascinated by them and the history behind their existence and how they ended up abandoned so when I discover a photo of an abandoned beach bar, I’m going to seize the opportunity to share it.
This abandoned beach bar is in Tunisia. Since it’s abandoned and obviously no longer opened, information on it is scant. The photographer has this to say about it on the flickr page: “The abandoned bar at the beach of Yasmine Hammamet, Tunisia. Yasmine Hammamet (Tunisia) is an integrated tourist station which spreads out over 278 hectares along the sea front. Hotels, restaurants and pubs, marina, and esplanade.” With a view like this one, it’s hard to imagine how it ended up being abandoned in the first place and one can only hope that it’s just a matter of time before the sound of music, conversation and ice rolling around in glasses emanate from its walls.
