The road goes through the middle of the picture. The two houses "beachfront of the road" nearest to the cameraman are dotted by plastic bags of rubbish. On the other side of the road you can make out a garden which is also covered with rubbish bags.
Not a great promotional pic to be sure. Reminds me of the time the Madeiran tourist board decided to make their advertising logo: "Madeira - you can have your cake and eat it" which was great for the Brit tourists but when translated into a dozen languages left a lot of people wondering what they were on about.
Hi Jim - hate to be pedantic, but I think you will find the relevant expression is 'you cannot eat your cake and have it'.
You can always have your cake and then eat it, but you cannot eat it and then have it..!
I know how you researchers like to get things right, or maybe it was Madeira who got it wrong, and should have said '...you can eat your cake and have it...?
Only joking, of course, this is a common mistake with this saying.
