All campers should do their best not to pollute Prasonisi with garbage and worse!
In the 1990s, some campers used the dunes of Prasonisi as a garbage dump. The authorities send a special forces team of the police. They dragged the campers out of their tents at night, while pointing on them with guns. The campers ended up in the jail of Rhodes Town for some time.

No one knows the details. Allegedly, the information on such incidents are kept strictly confidential.
