Another beach 'environmental gone'?  Free flow of sewage coming up!
All local officials happy with periodically incoming gifts. And all will be fine.

"Undeveloped beachfront site on millionaire mile" what a contradiction, just what Phuket needs another "luxury resort" how original, soon it will be a concrete jungle as insatiable greed of developers knows no bounds and there is no efdective enviromental planning control in Phuket to stop it, must have been a very large brown envelope!

Boy, this is we can finally get some untreated sewage flowing into Laem Singh so it can be like Kamala sewer bay to the south and Surin the dump site to the north.  Local Thais should hurry up and check this beautiful bay out ASAP, because the only way you'll see it again is if you work there making 9,000 baht a month job changing sheets and waiting on tourists. It'll never stop...

Sounds suspiciously like it'll block access to another so-called "public" beach.
