Horrid! Somehow rubbish on a beach, washed up by the tide, seems worse than rubbish on land. Don't ask me why but perhaps it's my expectation that a stretch of coastline will be beautiful? :( :( :(

I don't understand why the Junta is spending millions of euro promoting Andalucía and allows this to happen. That dreadful plastic is all over the place. I remember that area had a sea of red algeae last year. The authorities claimed it was harmless but the spanish forums claimed otherwise.

The problem on our local beach is the fishermen! There hardly used to be any but now there are lots in the evening, they leave beer cans, pizza boxes and lots of broken fishing line with lead weights on. I spend a lot of time clearing up if I take the dogs early am.

Katy those fishermen, and we may be talking about the same area I think, they leave a right mess, and they light fires leaving all the mess afterwards. Infact I think they probably break every beach law.

I think this is case of illegal dumping, not what the tide has brought in. A lot comes from the illegal plastic "greenhouses" close the beach. I'm just amazed how the authorities can turn a blind eye to it all!

No, he'll have an excuse for it. He's probably scouring the internet as we speak, trying to find something worse in UK. ;-)

Ah but when google throws up "did you mean Kurds on Fistral Beach" that will be yet another reason why Spain is so much better than UK :wink:

One thousand six hundred. Not massive but gives us a nice amount of outside space. We didn't want acres as its for retirement. Just enough for us and our dogs and a pool.

Gaz :D
