Yes all beaches are publicly owned and the Costas are responsible for managing them.

I think wherever people gather we all need to consider how our actions affect others and show some respect.

We saw a Spanish couple walking a large dog on the beach the other night and they completely ignored the very large �� it did! My daughter politely asked them to clear it up. They pretended they couldn't find it... so we pointed it out to them. They didn't have any poo bags but eventually got a plastic cup out of the bin and cleared it up. Disgusting

That is indeed disgusting......on the beach where children play, is incredible selfishness. The culture is definitely different here, as just walking around the town, you have to be very careful where you step.

Clearly there is only so much one can say, as we are the outsiders.

Assuming that it's only local dog owners who don't pick up ...
