1.5 km is the length of Hua Thanon beach. Its width is in different places in different ways, from ten meters to zero. From the Red Temple to Chinese temple Guan Yu is still relatively normal beach, although heavily polluted, but further, in the direction of fishing the village is no longer a beach. There are stones, concrete parapet, destroyed pier and channels dug up near the shore for mooring boats. The beach is very contrasting – fine gray sand and coarse brown pebbles. All this is mixed with trash.
Clean the beach is not maintained anywhere except plots which are adjacent directly to the hotels. Sea on Hua Tanone shallow, water rises high during tides, brings garbage, and with ebb it takes it, partially. Trash is mostly natural origin, but along the village of fishermen nature is significantly inferior to man.
People unprepared or squeamish in a fishing village better do not come in. The stench of dried fish, sewage, wastewater, fishing tackles, piles of garbage along houses and ashore are not a sight for Greenpeace members. People on the beach a little, as a rule, these are tenants hotels and resorts that have been crammed into a 40-50 m space between Ring road and the sea.
Tourists, if they stop by, in order to take pictures and go farther. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a brief overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide in choosing a beach.
Entry, depth and waves
The shallow water on Hua Tanon alternates with deep-water sections, which allow small ships to approach the shore close, but they allow the waves to destroy the coast. On the beach often come across concrete rings that reinforce sand slopes along the hotels. The entrance to the water is spoiled by stones and debris, in some places algae.
And if you really want to swim on the Hua Thanon beach, then safe and clean place to enter the water – near boulders on its northern part. Holiday with children on Hua Tanon is not recommended, restless this place is dirty, noisy, and not far from the road.
Sun beds and shade
On the beach along Hua Tanona, the fishermen occupied the entire coast. boats, tackles, garbage and bamboo houses in which they rest. Opposite the hotels there are beach chairs, but – on their territory. Sun beds, umbrellas, inflatable mattresses and other beach equipment on the public part of the beach – no.
