...but this pretty wastebasket is not big enough for all the stones...

These stones are just like those in My photos, uncomfortable to lay in. :)

That's right polytropos, that's a "Sandy" Beach at Madeira, the only real sandy beachs in Madeira are made with imported sand, from Canarias.

Cheers, Alex

AlexMatos Yes, I saw them in Ribeira Brava or Ponta do Sol, or was it Calheta?

AlexMatos on November 29, 2007

I guess it's Calheta polytropos, I am not 100% sure, but yes, I think so.

Cheers, Alex

In Calheta there is imported sand from Marocco, I read. But this are good rounded stones. The flat ones were throwing into the Sea...

Was ich noch fragen wollte: Kostet das Einwerfen von Müll Geld?

Ja, sie haben z.T. an ihren grossen Touristenstränden afrikanischen Sand importiert und ihn durch vorgelagerte Dämme zu schützen versucht. Aber es hat glaubs nicht wirklich geklappt. Viel ist wieder weggespült worden.

Auf dem Schild über dem Kehrichtkübel steht:
"Proteja a sua sauda"
"Mantenha a praia libra"  oder s.ä.
Ich wüsste jetzt nicht, dass man da zahlen müsste. Wie sollte man das auch kontrollieren?
