Authorities are pleading for cooperation from all tourists and residents to comply with an ongoing swimming ban at all of the island’s west-coast beaches today due to dangerous surf conditions.

Likewise, restrictions on sea travel via small vessels – shorter than 10 metres and/or with engines smaller than 400 horsepower – remain in effect due to rough conditions in the Andaman Sea.
