Phase 2 of Jomtien Beach widening set to begin

The Marine Department is accelerating the widening of Jomtien Beach in Pattaya to tackle coastal erosion and attract tourists to the city.

The project was begun in 2020, and the first phase of 3.5km was completed on December 29, 2021.

The department is working on the second phase of 2.6km of beach.

"The width of the beach is expected to increase to an average of 50 metres once the project is completed," the Marine Department said.

The department expects the number of Thai and foreign visitors coming to Pattaya to increase as the Covid-19 crisis has eased.
