I am disgusted by all the graffiti around not just Playa Flamenca but also for several miles in all directions. One particular thing keeps being repeated and that's the name 'READ'.  It's always done in the same style and it's everywhere. I assume it's a name anyway and wonder if anyone knows a family/ person with that name.

Do you have children in school who might know a boy or girl who might be responsible for a lot of the graffiti? I am sure the Police would love to have a conversation with the parents of just such a child called 'Read'.

“Read” is the tag name that they use. The tag is like a calling card that lets all other groups know they have been there! Same principle as a cat sprays on walls etc, but these idiots use spray paint! Pretty rare to find them to be honest as there are so many groups or gangs with different tags. Nicola :-)

I agree it’s horrible around the Playa Flamenca area. I see it on electricity boxes, the ground, walls etc and it makes the place look awful. Nearly as bad as the amount of dog poo left on the ground too. Don’t start me on that subject lol

It didn’t take them too long to graffiti the new gates they installed along the canal either.

We walk a lot from Guardamar to La Mata and everywhere you look there is Graffiti with the name Gyros but this could be years old,it's very sad and frustrating as it's a beautiful area and so much graf

Some say it's "urban art"

I say it's my day, we would feel rebelious, if we carved our names in tree bark..

How times have changed..(or I've got older 😂)
