dirty beach

we have just returned from gumesluk
and i must comment on the Disgusting beach in front of the gumesluk club
I have never seen so many Cigarette ends in one place
they almost covered the sand.
They also had the cheek to try and charge 7 ytl for a large beer
i have been going to the bodrum area for 5 years and i have never
seen any beach like this before.

perhaps things might change next year

Re: dirty beach

When ever we go to the beach home or abroad my other half hates it, he alway goes under protest and sits there kicking all the fag ends and rubbish away muttering "dirty b******ds" under his breath, he just cant see the attraction, I must admit there are alway hundreds of fag ends everywhere and quite a lot of other rubbish on the beach when we went this year, old carrier bags, plastic bottles etc.

Ive think we have had this disscusion before on this forum about the fact that a lot of Turkish people just dont see the importance of taking their rubbish home with them, something that us Brits do automatically (well most of us, obviously its not only the Turks that are making the beaches so dirty)

Beaches in the Uk do seem cleaner but then most of the big beaches are cleaned every morning with big tractor type machines, I wonder what they would be like if this didnt happen.

I presume this doesnt happen in Turkey.

Re: dirty beach

You were obviously too busy looking at the dirty beach Barry to note how Gumusluk was spelt! But you didn't have to worry anyway mind you as it's spelt for you on the forum you posted in - and you still got it wrong!!!!

Re: dirty beach

Years ago UK also had a problem with litter on beaches but somehow the campaign to take litter home worked. We have taken some holidays in Cornwall and Devon this year and the beaches were so clean and also the holiday towns. Falmouth in particular was just amazing. I suppose having tidal waters must help a bit though as the sea comes in and 'sweeps' the sand twice a day but I think on the whole people just clear up after themselves. On the beaches we use in Turkey the ones by restaurants seem clean and I suppose they keep them tidy and put out sandy pots for fag ends, it's the out of the way ones and the bits between restaurants that we find dirty. There is a beautiful stretch of coast on the Datca peninsula that faces Bodrum and it is just full of plastic stuff washed up from there. My husband likes to windsurf there because of the onshore winds but it's not pleasant for me to sit and watch due to all the rubbish. Cleaning it up would be difficult as it is washed up all the time. I wonder if a 'Keep Turkey Clean' campaign would work there? If you can train Brits to dispose thoughtfully of their rubbish maybe it would work elsewhere.

Re: dirty beach

When l was living near the beaches of Altinkum.l have noticed the amount of rubbish washed up everyday during the winter months.By looking at the rubbish,it is odvious where the rubbish is coming from.The fishing boats are the one's l am pointing my finger at.With hypodermic needles,plastic bottles containing waste engine oil,loads of cigarette butts,discarded food packaging,nets,fishing line with hooks etc.
l had a pair of binoculars focused on this large fishing boat while sailing out to sea,and l actually did see a person chucking a lot of rubbish over the edge.The cigarette butts are a everyday occurence from the fishing vessels at night,being disposed of once they have finished their smoke.
l did ask a Turkish person about this irrisponsible action from these boats,whether he can help me to translate what l want to say to the authorities about this problem.He said you will be wasting your time,and they will just laugh at you
