The eagerly anticipated clean up of Bahia de Portman took place over the weekend and it was a resounding success with almost 500 volunteers taking part.
With the sun shining from early morning, a massive crowd congregated to pick up their specially designed t-shirts and cleaning materials including gloves, refuse sacks, boiler suits, rakes and shovels. It didn’t take long for the bags to fill up, with our volunteers braving the sweltering heat like true heroes.
Lunchtime came around midday and gave the team a deserved chance to recharge their batteries. Such was the turnout, we were even able to pack up early with clean-up completed an hour ahead of schedule.
Over the course of the campaign we’ve found some pretty unusual items of rubbish scattered across beaches and some of the most notable finds in Portman included hangers, bottles, a flowerpot holder, pipes and a carpet! In total we collected over 62,500 pieces of rubbish.
Following on from the mass clean-up, the team made their way to the Nautical Club where a delicious barbeque was being prepared. Corona aplenty, music and all round good vibes ensured the night was also a roaring success.
From all of us here at Save the Beach, we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped out on the beach, as well as those in The Union and its Nautical Club for all their help. Last but not least, we want to thank you for supporting us throughout the campaign, for uploading neglected beaches and voting for them to be saved. It’s thanks to all of you that Bahia de Portman has been saved…

OK it’s near Murcia on Spain’s Meditteranean coast.
If you want to publicise your efforts to the casual site visitor I suggest you include a bit more info about the beach’s location. Thanks, Andy

Great effort but where is this beach?
