Police were called, early on Thursday morning, when a body was washed up on the beach.
Medics and police rushed to Pattaya Beach to the seen but the man was found to be dead.
He was identified as Chaiya Hompa, a 26-year-old Thai.
Initial reports suggest the man had been dead for some time and there were no obvious injuries to his body.
His girlfriend was at the scene. She informed officers that they had gone for a swim the previous evening, following a few drinks with friends.
It was dark but all was well until she returned to the beach but Mr. Hompa was nowhere in sight. She continued to say that she believed he had gone to buy refreshments or food but as time passed, she realised that he was unlikely to have done so.
Despite searching frantically, she did not discover the body of her boyfriend until the sun came up.
A postmortem and investigation are underway, although there are no suspicious circumstances said the police.
