This place was dog poop paradise,you literally had to watch your feet.Don't know what type of people walk their dogs here.Will not under any circumstances be back.Bangor sea front has the odd irresponsible dog walker but not on the scale .

its not very clean,and you get to many people out with there dogs,and running about children.also dog owners should lift there poo bags instead of them lying on the beach for children to pick up.
