Clean fine sand

Lovely beach. Looked clean, just a shame there was no one policing people bringing dogs on when the guide says they’re not allowed.

Such a shame to see so much rubbish, buried nappies, glass bottles and papers no excuse either as the bins are just a few steps away!

What did we get wrong?
