The beach at Stokes Bay is manually cleaned throughout the summer months and Gosport employs extra staff for this purpose. They do a great job but sadly some visitors are determined to make their job difficult. There are litter bins all the way along the promenade at frequent intervals.
Here at Stokes Bay we pride ourselves in the way that we keep our environment clean from rubbish and waste. Nobody wants to walk along the promenade and see discarded litter, which can be blown around by the frequent winds and anything left on the beach may enter the sea. We urge visitors to make use of the many litter bins and to take their rubbish home with them for recycling where possible. There are also a large variety of recycling bins located in the car park north of the Splash Park.

The Friends of Stokes Bay organise Litter Picks throughout the year.
