    I do agree rubbish bins and plastic right next to beaches all the way to Agios Nikalaos and beyond should be a priority. Under ground rubbish bins would solve some of the issues as long as they are away from the coastal front and spectacular views of the coast line. Many local people spend time collecting the plastic from the beaches but it just keeps on coming..

    Need to address the filthy litter problem and poor abused and dumped strays. Unfortunately it is what people are remembering more than the beauty of the area!
