Miami Beach - The Instagram illusion versus reality

At present, the TikToker is in Miami, having recently returned from a cruise in the Bahamas. She shared a video comparing the often idealized social media depiction of Miami with its reality.

The video opens with aerial shots depicting an idyllic Miami beach that looks very appealing. The sand appears soft and clean, and the water has a turquoise hue.

Kasia proceeds to present a closer look at the beach which reveals an abundance of dried seaweed that doesn't look particularly appealing. Moreover, there are seagulls scattering around in search of food. "Seagulls have taken over Miami" - Kasia captions the video.
