Phuket visitors are harassed by hooligans on jet skis, causing riots on the shores of Surin Beach
Phuket authorities are trying to solve the problem of jet skis on Surin Beach, located in a prestigious area of the island. Five jet skis and a parasailing boat were confiscated last Friday, according to Thai news reports.
Complaints were received from vacationers about the dangerous situation, although officially motorized watercraft are strictly prohibited from entering the beach area. As pointed out in the article, people on speedboats often break this rule, prompting officials to ask jet ski owners to show their license to operate and issue them with a warning.
Surin Beach on this Thai island paradise is known as "Millionaire's Mile" as luxury villas and high-end resorts line the hills overlooking the Andaman Sea. Popular activities that attract tourists are swimming and sunbathing, surfing, as well as snorkeling and diving.
For those seeking the thrill of jet skiing in Phuket, there are plenty of options, from trips around nearby islands to trips through mangrove forests only accessible from coastal bays.
