You might want to avoid Ao Prao beach this week . . .

The oil slick from the recent spillage has reached the east of Koh Samet. This photo from Ao Phrao beach this morning; https:/…1

Busier east coast beaches are unaffected so far.

Thanks, Ian. Do you know whether it has reached the mainland? We are still not sure whether to relocate and would appreciate any local information. We are booked in a beach house but can change to somewhere like Hua Hin if bad.

Just switch to the East side of the island and you can still enjoy!

Can anyone help? I'm looking to travel to the Ao Prao resort in mid January 2014. Is the beach now safe to swim from and the sea food safe to eat? Thanks
