Maenam Beach in Danger: Mysterious spots on the surface of the water

At Maenam Beach on Koh Samui, where many foreign tourists rest, they began to complain about an unpleasant smell and unusual spots on the sea water. Many of them refused to bathe for fear of skin irritation. Experts have already taken the water for analysis, but it is not yet clear what caused this situation and how quickly it can be resolved.

However, it is possible that the spots were caused by a tanker that was damaged and was transporting a large amount of oil to the Gulf of Thailand. Despite the Thai government's claims that there was no leak, it is possible that the oil ended up in the sea and made it to the popular beach.

The situation with spots on Maenam is unique so far, and such complaints have not been received in other tourist provinces. However, this is a reminder of the environmental vulnerability of many tourist destinations and the need to respect nature.
