    Uma linda praia mas suja na beira, mal cuidada,e cachorros solto, os donos pensam que a praia é para seus cachorros, tem que prenderem e tem que usarem focinheira, tem que criarem um parque para cachorro e não usarem a praia para seus cachorros andarem a cagar e atacando as pessoas, falta controle
