    Undoubtedly, they are all beautiful. But… full of wipes, plastic, hurdles and fecal remains, I can assure you that they are not so much anymore. And I say this because thinking about the garbage collection that we have done and that we continue to do (both in groups and individually) the different groups of volunteers (for example, Jávea I love you. Clean!; Plastic Patrol; Ecologists in Action, in addition to many others), we can certify that the beaches, whether they are sandy, rocky or pebbly, are not as idyllic as advertised and appear in the photos. And it's a real shame.
