Environmental Considerations

Ban Tai Beach is not without its seasonal nuances. The tides play a significant role in the beach’s accessibility for swimming, and during certain months, like February, an increase in algae can be observed. Visitors in April might witness the unique ‘sea bloom’ phenomenon, where dead plankton gathers, changing the coastal waters’ appearance​​.
