China's Popular Silver Beach is Horribly Polluted

"...instead of discovering miles of pristine sands, the 3.5 million Chinese tourists who visit every year are just as likely to encounter condom wrappers, chunks of polystyrene and bottles dropped by sunbathers or washed up from the sea - so much detritus that the squads of cleaners who patrol it say that there is sometimes no area of clean sand large enough for people to lie down." - excerpt from article in The Telegraph.
