Four beaches in Trang closed to swimming due to unsafe conditions

Officials from the Haad Chao Mai National Park have posted red flags along four popular Trang beaches to warn tourists against swimming because strong onshore winds were whipping up the waves to more than two metres in height.

Haad Chao Mai National Park is a protected area located in the Sikao and Kantang Districts of Trang Province, Thailand. It is a marine national park. Established in 1981, it is an IUCN Category II protected area with coral reefs, and an area measuring 230.86 square kilometres.

Narong Khong-iad, the chief of the park, says red flags were raised along the Haad Yao, Haad Yong Ling, Haad Chao Mai and Haad Pak Meng beaches to warn tourists against swimming.

He also stressed that tourists are prohibited from heading offshore to visit the marine park and warned tourism operators to strictly comply with the order against taking tourists to visit the islands in the park area.
