Sophon TV said that a 2.6 kilometer stretch of the beach in Pattaya was a filthy mess.
And according to a local operator it is tourists that are to blame.
From North to South Pattaya the beach is a disgrace, said the news organisation on Facebook.
The water is black and horrible.
The tide line in particular is strewn with plastic bags, beer bottles, spirit bottles, discarded tins of cooling powder foam containers and everything else you can think of.
They quoted Ladda Limkun a beach operator who categorically blamed the tourists for the mess.
She said that people who eat and drink on the beach just don’t clean up after themselves.
Furthermore tourists on boat trips just toss their trash in the sea meaning it washes up on the shore.
The authorities have been slow to react to the latest eyesore of rubbish, she added.
Thaivisa notes that the Sophon story merely mentioned “nak thong thiaw” or tourists – no nationalities were named in their Facebook article.
