We just want you to help us keep this beach clean, how? by following these easy tips which will allow us to continue enjoying the beauty of this place. Are you ready? let’s start.

1.- Don’t collect the shells from the sand

You probably consider this as something harmless, however, many of these shells provide shelter to small animals and over time, these shells become part of the sand, preventing the erosion. Plus, it’s a food source for some life forms.

2.- Use chemical-free sunscreens

This a very important point due to the fact that the normal sunscreens have many chemicals, which form a thin film on the water that stops the sunlight from reaching the bottom. This stops many seaweeds from producing the photosynthesis process that releases oxygen and sulphur.

3.-Forget about glass

If you want to drink or eat while you are on the beach, be sure that all the containers are made of plastic or use aluminium or Ziploc bags, in this way we can prevent any kind of accidents.

4.- If you bring it, you take it

Once your visit has ended, please pick up your garbage; and if you can, please try to clean a small part of the beach where you were.
