We provide the original drone images acquired with a DJI Phantom 4 Professional (Pro) at a 10 m altitude, a camera gimbal at a nadir point and 70% side and front overlaps. The images were acquired in 5 beaches along the Saudi Arabian Red Sea coast. This is a subsample of the 44 beaches surveyed during an assessment of anthropogenic beach litter as described in Martin et al. 2021 "Anthropogenic litter density and composition data acquired flying commercial drones on sandy beaches along the Saudi Arabian Red Sea", Data in Brief.
