If you want to visit some pristine beaches in Sattahip, you are now bared from entry if you are a foreigner. I tried to go last week and the navy told me several time “go to Pattaya, beach is for Thai only”.
Draw your own conclusion about how these people are considering us. If we want to swim in Pattaya, we are welcome to swim in our own shit since they are dumping all from the hotel directly to the water.
Clean beach? You have to pay, or it is reserved to Thai only. Maybe there is another road to Ran Nam Beach but the Navy didn’t want to tell us. We were bared from 3 different beaches that are advertised on the road.
