Visitor Reviews of Playa de Oyambre

Blusx from SPAIN writes:

Playa de Oyambre, posiblemente una de las peores playas del norte de España, no se puede ir con niños, ya que la playa está apestada de cagadas de perros, y los perros sueltos peligrosos y no peligrosos.
Es una pena que den prioridad a los perros antes que a las personas, hay una señal de prohibido perros pero el ayuntamiento de Valdaliga lo permite, como permite hacer señales de trafico a los bares o chiringuitos, es de risa las señales amarradas a los árboles.
Bueno si el ayuntamiento permite perros que quite las señales de prohibición y se quede y de paso que quite las señales de prohibido acampada libre, pues el aparcamiento y los prados de alrededor estan llenos de acampadas (ya me diras donde cagan y mean)
