PATTAYA:--The military moved the front lines of its war on beach vendors to Cozy Beach, cracking down on vendors not complying with its new policies on beach chair and umbrella renting.

 

National Council for Peace and Order Banglamung’s Maj. Suwit Laklang and Pattaya municipal police chief Maj. Jirawat Sukontasap led a squad of soldiers to the Pratamnak Hill beachfront Aug. 28 to measure and reorganize plots rented by vendors.

 

Cozy Beach is approximately 329 meters long and has 16 beach operators who have been downsized to a single 63-sq.-meter plot with just 1.5 meters separating each plot. That leaves 47 percent of the beach available to the public for free.
