This initiative came from local authorities, who want to protect the sand of the beach. La Pelosa Beach in Stintino is popular due to its fine and white sand and the turquoise color of the sea. Every summer, here come to rest up to three to four thousand tourists a day. They support the local authorities, carrying the sand on the beach with towels and their shoes, but also in luggage “as a memory”.
The mayor’s initiative has triggered, according to rian.ru, the rebellion of the locals, who believes that it is thus the intention of transforming Stintino into a resort just for rich tourists. Previously , local authorities have taken steps to protect the beach, ie banning entry to the beach with the car and turning the road to the beach in bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways.
