    I agree- great beach (and HUGE).

    My mom lives further out on the Island these days, and if I go to NY to visit her I'll usually spend a day at Sunken Meadow- it's too damned rocky and makes me miss Jones Beach.

    The whole Long Island south shore has great beaches. 100 miles worth.

    ^NFS....in fact the Hudson river was just in the news last week closed for 4 days due to a power outage at the sewer treatment plant and while the power was off, it diverted millions of gallons of raw sewage right into it. 4 days later they reported the bacteria level had dropped to an acceptable level, whatever that means.

    ^Looks can be very deceiving. Just because you can see clear water does not mean it is not loaded with bacteria etc.


    Most people just think this kind of thing only happens to one place in the world, Pattaya beach™.

    Vancouver had to close off one of its popular beaches for a while just a week ago due to a sewage dump.

    You have a report indicating the readings? Do the authority tasked with taking/testing the water publish daily reports or not? Do you know anything at all about the real water quality or are you one of the sheep who follow?

    The centre of Manchester doesn't have a beach, a canal maybe.

    The cleanest beaches in the world are probably on Kerguelen



    Falklands pretty clean too, but finding a spot for your windbreaker can be a bit of a minefield.

    It is not the sewage in Pattaya that stinks, but rather the poor class of tourists who flock there. I have learned to hate the place.

    Now Rio is a different story entirely, and Boon Me is right that the Brazilian's really do focus on keeping it clean (but not safe!!!).

    Part 2 From Pattaya One News

    PART 2

    The urban myth that Pattaya beach is dirty (Part 2)

    This is part 2 of Teakdoor’s excellent thread, called “The urban myth that Pattaya
    beach is dirty
    “, started by a poster called Socal, who argued: The beach is not
    dirty, it is safe to swim in, and every rumor you hear out there is bullshit
    .

    Bangyai might have coined a new marketing slogan for the delights of Pattaya
    City, by turning a negative into a positive: Still the best place for a dirty weekend.

    And APMann threw down the gauntlet to Socal: One of the treatment centres is at
    the top of Walking Street where the smell is appalling as shit seeps from the plant
    and the drains. If you want to take me up on a bet about leaking sewage, meet
    me next time you're in Pattaya and I will give you 5,000 Baht cash, if you suck up
    some of the bubbling, oozing fetid shit (or maybe, in your rose-tinted book, just
    rain water) from a grid very near the top of Walking Street
    .

    A poster called Loy Toy quickly emerged as the eminence grise of Pattaya sewage.
    With his Bangkok and Pattaya sewage disposal official contacts, and his own
    ahem, hands-on experience, he added an enormous amount of factual horror to
    the thread.

    But before that, we had a lot of other Pattaya beach horror stories to endure.

    Socal commented that: generally, Pattaya beach is a lot cleaner than people
    think
    .

    Dirtydog replied: My toilet is a lot cleaner than people think, damn sure I wouldn't
    put my face in there let alone my hands
    .

    Sabaii Sabaii said that there was plenty of wildlife on the beach: I've seen loads of
    stray dogs shitting there.


    Thep Den then posted an unpleasant video of a disturbingly large amount of rats
    scavenging on the beach at night.

    He also posted a photo of the groundwater drain bursting foul-looking black
    water directly onto Pattaya beach, not out to sea as happens in Jomtien, with a
    man holding a handkerchief to his nose, leaving us in no doubt about the stench.

    And other horrors await on Pattaya beach: Loy Toy said: I have banned my kids
    from walking on the beach because of hypodermic needles being washed ashore
    .

    But it isn’t only the beach that is being polluted. The sea is also getting a “sea-ing”
    to.

    Loy Toy – said local fishermen were worried because their business had been
    destroyed by pollution that has killed off a lot of the sea-life
    .

    Sir Wilson said he used to regularly sail in Pattaya, and the water is filthy, with
    turds, dead animals, sewage, plastic you name it
    .

    To make matters worse, Butterfly cheekily suggested the only reason you would
    want to swim in Pattaya is for taking a quick dump for lack of alternative
    .

    Captain Nemo wondered: how many thimblefuls of water from a freshly-used
    toilet (that someone else shat in) would it take for someone to pour into your
    bathwater before you refused to get in?


    He also pointed out that industrial ships cleared out their toilet waste tanks and
    even viler ballast tanks on the approach into Laem Chabang and Rayong ports,
    and cruise liners contributed to the problem poo – sorry, too:
    up to 8,000 passengers per ship, and at least one grunty a day, where do think it
    all goes?


    Loy Toy believed septic tank pumping contractors in the city often empty their
    waste illegally, given the costs of having it treated at sewage treatment plants. He
    believed this also found its way to the sea.

    He thought that the City would need billions of dollars to build a new plant or
    upgrade a plant big enough to handle the amount of waste the city produces.

    Loy Toy said a chief sewage official from Bangkok, was absolutely shocked when
    I showed him pictures of the number of residential sewerage pipes being directed
    straight into the storm water drains along Soi Siam Country Club Road whilst that
    Road was being constructed.

    He had a mobile laboratory which showed massive amounts of human waste and
    other industrial chemicals in the water flowing across my property.


    He also said: There are official people here that are very concerned and sorry
    about the polluted waterways of Pattaya but the whole situation is so far out of
    hand they have no solution.


    And finally, Loy Toy again, posted some really disgusting-looking photographs of
    Pattaya’s “storm water drains” from a recent visit.

    This is evidence of the horrible pollution in Pattaya and the mindless actions of
    those that connect their sewerage straight to the storm water drains.

    I took these photos last week .

    You can stand 10 metres away from the manhole and the smell is unbearable.

    I was wearing a special scented mask, that killed off most of the smell down there
    but you could see human waste, plastic bags and just about everything else you
    will find later on in Pattaya Bay.


    This thread served as a sobering reminder that it’s not entirely safe to be
    swallowing seawater near the beach in Pattaya, unless you’re some kind of
    fetishist.
