Surely Phuket must able to lay claim to being the world hub of death beaches for tourists.there maybe a lot of beaches that are far more dangerous and unswimmable but can anyone name a island that has more deaths than Phuket.

Had a flip on google and agree it is a dangerous island.very hard to put figures on it because of certain factors like how many people use the islands the beaches and other data.

At the same time Phuket should be ashamed of the poor safety record and what seems to be a lack of lifeguards that only come across as body recovery services rather than life savers.

No idea, in Australia 110 deaths from beach drownings.

still Phuket's beaches are inadequately equipped with lifeguards and safety equipment

 

no need to do anything about this: In line with the governmental order to return to pristine beaches. Tourists taking a swim are solely at their own risk (and stupidity)

So much hype from Government spokesmen pertaining to tourist safety yet still Phuket's beaches are inadequately equipped with lifeguards and safety equipment.

 

Nothing changes, it's just talk.

There's no money in it for officials to have quality lifeguards, equipment and safety standards. Things would be different if there was a way to make money from keeping tourists from drowning.

No need for nanny lifeguard. People should be free to drown if they want to.
