A 16 strong party descended on Cozy Beach on Monday armed with a tape measure with the goal of liberating sections of the beach from deckchair operators, who in a new initiative are limited to one 7 x 9 meter plot on the sand.
Authorities have already carried out similar operation at both Pattaya and Jomtien beaches and are now turning their attention to Koh Larn, Pratumnak, Wong Amat and Cozy.
The new regulations do not only limit the size of their plots but also prevent the operators from working on certain days.
Sophon Cable reported that 47% of Cozy beach was reclaimed from deckchair operators for use by the public in the recent operation.
A bold Thai citizen posted on Facebook that normal practice would be resumed once the authorities were gone.
