Salinopolis, with a population of 40,000, receives an estimated 280,000 visitors during the month of July, mostly to enjoy the beaches located just southeast of the Amazon river’s mouth where the fresh water mixes with the Atlantic Ocean’s salt water in Brazil.

Officials estimate that close to 50,000 vehicles drive onto the city’s two most popular beaches, Atalaia and Farol Velho, with tons of garbage left.
