Water on the beach has become black and fetid: tourists in Phuket no longer go into the sea. What's more, photos of the black, muddy waters on the beaches in Patong have made the rounds on the internet and are threatening to severely damage Phuket's tourism business. Now vacationers are hesitant to go into the water for fear for their health and urge the local authorities to solve the problem as soon as possible.
The sea water around the Pak Bang canal on the beach in Patong has turned black, causing bewilderment and concern among tourists. They began to share pictures of the area that had become unsuitable for swimming and called on those responsible to open an investigation. Many of the photos were posted on their pages by Drone Boat Patong with the comment that black algae could affect tourism in Phuket.
We have already written about a similar situation on the beaches of Koh Samui. There, local authorities also associate the black color of the water with plankton blooms, a completely natural and safe phenomenon for humans. Normalization of the situation is expected no more than within a week. As noted by The Phuket Express, similar situations have already occurred on the island.
