This was my favourite beach locale for many years but since the rampant invasion of Chinese tourists and developers it is no more. Sadly due to greed another beautiful part of the world is in tatters.

We had heard this beach wasn’t great, but decided to wonder from our hostel to see for ourselves. It’s so sad, the beach itself is beautiful, but it has been completely ruined by rubbish and it’s a complete dump.
