This is how Shenzhen's Dameisha Beach in China looks at the end of the annual Dragon Boat Festival.

Some 780,000 people dumped more than 330 tonnes of rubbish in just one weekend.

It seems unreal that people can still relax surrounded by so much garbage. Just imagining the stench makes me feel sick.

They are now cleaning the beach, but it will take a while before it gets back to the way it was before.

You can watch a video here to see the difference.
