That time of year again...no swimming at the beaches!

Please guys it is that time of year again when we cannot swim at the beaches located along Phuket's west coast. Please watch out for the red flags!

I really hope that they get the lifeguard contract renewal sorted and put in place as soon as possible and that more hotels put notices in their establishments warning their guests about the dangers. But most of all let us hope that visitors actually take notice of the warning flags!

Wishing for the beautiful day when the numbers are so low that it becomes almost a thing of the past....
