Bang Tao Beach

Can anyone tell me what has happened on Bang Tao beach. We had a really nice holiday here in 2014 and we were thinking of going again next winter.

I understand the beach has now been cleared of illegal buildings, does this include all the small food/drink stalls and sun beds etc? or is it just the big illegal buildings?

Also I have seen in another forum the clearance may have left dangerous debris in the sand. Does anyone have any experience of this?

Thank you for this. We have just come back from Cha Am/Hua Hin area and the beach has not yet been cleared. We have been staying in a condo away from the beach and use a beach bar with sunbeds thoughout our stay.

What a shame, it will really change our view of Thailand, and unless we can find a reasonable hotel on the beach to stay in, we will not be going back
