Pollution in Pattaya Jomtien

I was told that you should never swim in Pattaya because of raw sewage. And for the most part you never see anyone actually in the water. I stayed in Jomtien, and assumed the water was OK there, since there were quite a few folks out swimming and playing in the waves. Tonight I did a Google search on this subject, and it said Jomtien is even worse than Pattaya. :GoldenSmile1:

 

I never got sore throat, eye infections or anything like that.... Diarea yes, but I figured that was from the food !

 

What do you Addicts know about this? Even the info in the Google search seemed to be more anectdotal than scientific. Does the water ever get tested?

I was told that many years ago it was a problem, but they extended the sewage pipe so it is put out alot further. Thats all I know.

The thais seem to swim in pattay beach without any big problem. But the probably have more robost immune systems.

 

There is a lot of crap washed up ashore though. i've always shyed away because I dont' want to come up for air havinv swallowed a crisp packet or something worse.

Theres also a health an safety issue on pattaya beach with the jetskis. Every year a few swimmers or divers get killed by them.

even in the roped of swimming area your gamblign that jetskis have the basic sense to avoid the roped of area, becaus the guy that rented it to them probably didn't bother to tell them.

 

I tend to go to the islands for a day swimming on the beach.

Cost is under 300B for a boat ticket at the pier which takes an hour. Or 500B for a place on a speedboat which can be booked anywhere on the beach, or around 1.5k to 2k to hire your own speedboat (+driver).

I spent a few days two weeks ago on the beach in Jomtien with the Thai family and was surprised by the amount of rubbish floating in the sea, it would be wise to go to the islands I think. Safety is not very high on the Thai list of things to be concerned about.

Cheers,

In the dry season (November to February approx) the sea is alot cleaner, but even then I would limit myself to some beaches in Naklua and Dong Tang, and even better Koh Larn and Bang Suray a little further away. Once the wetter season starts and all the shit overflows out of the storm drains, I stick to the pool.

I thought the trip to Koh Lan is only 20 baht on the ferry?

I went by speedboat in the end so not sure.

But I was told it had gone up in price.

You are correct it is 20 Baht either buy a ticket at the Bali Hai Pier entrance or just pay when you get on the boat same for the return just pay 20 Baht when you get on the Boat.

 

Pattaya to Koh Larn 07.00-10.00-12.00-14.00-15.30-17.00-18.30

 

Koh Larn to Pattaya 06.30-07.30-09.30-12.00-14.00-17.00-18.00

 

Takes about 30 minutes.

I like being near a beach area, and all the things that go with it. Pattaya has a lot of things, including the near by beach, waves crashing, sand, etc.(and a lot of things you can't find anywhere else), but I don't need to swim in it. If I feel a true impulse to get into the water, I'll go somewhere else.

 

Also, Jomtien is a baht bus ride away. If a cleaner beach becomes that important for me I'll stay there, or somewhere else.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
