Discount beachside vacation rates available, ten free bags of trash per customer, call now! A beach in the Dominican Republic is currently so filled with waste that at some points, the clear blue water of the Caribbean isn’t even visible. A video posted on Instagram by Parley, an activist project that promotes clean oceans, shows Montesinos Beach in Santo Domingo full of garbage:

The waste is so dense that the ocean tides make it appear as if the waste is moving on its own. Parley says members of the organization and 500 public workers are currently working to clean up the beach.
