"Thailand's famous cleanest beach" opens to tourists again as pandemic restrictions eased

Manager reported that a bay and beach named several years ago as Thailand's cleanest are now back up and running. 

 

Saplee Bay and Thung Wua Len beach in Chumphon had been closed for the best part of two months until they were opened last week. 

 

Now with restrictions lifted on piers, hotels and other tourism sites the province is fully getting back to normal from today.

In a survey by Thai environmentalists in 2017 Saplee Bay and Thung Wua Len beach were named the cleanest in Thailand. 

 

Talay Waek in Krabi and Tonsai on Koh Phi Phi were three and four and Chong Saem San, Chonburi, rounded out the top five. 

 

Manager said that the area in Chumpon was "famous all over the world" but had been deserted for nearly two months.

Oh praise the Lord! They are on about Chumpon. For a moment I thought some belter was going to try and tell us that Pattaya was in tip top condition, which would obviously be impossible, but that hasn't slowed them down in the past.

the clue is in the words "the cleanest"........:unsure:

I've been to Chumporn, nice enough beach, but I can't imagine it would be cleaner than say, the islands of the Koh Moo Surin chain, far off the coast, with no permanent residents and closed off every rainy season.

 

Maybe they meant "cleanest mainland beach", in which case, they could be right. On the other hand, in my experience, the least touristy beaches tend to be the dirtiest, since no one cleans them up. This was confirmed in a Thai TV tourism show I watched recently, where they head to a villa in Sam Roi Yod, Prachuab Khiri Khan, and the anchor mentions how the beach isn't that clean because there's no cleaning staff. By contrast, Hua Hin is cleaned every day, he said.

Tonsai Bay at PP Island is a dump when the island is operative, with 1000's of Chinese day trippers

The plastic crud and body parts have not had time to settle to the bottom in that the beaches are now open again. Much ado about nothing. Nothing will change.

Went to Thung Wua Len once, and it is indeed stunning. Shame the the thousands of white wingedcsand flies make it impossible to enjoy this beach. Totally infested.

 

My vote goes to Khao Lak.

Yeah this is a beautiful part of coastline.  We spent christmas and New Years down there 2015, lots of Thais , so on my early morning jog lot of waste and plastic, same eveywhere to be honest.

I found Krabi, Ao Nang and Railee to be very clean in March/April.
