“Surin Beach is only a part of the whole beach project,” Phuket Vice Governor Chokdee Amornwat told The Phuket News today.

“Next will be demolitions at Leypang and Layan beaches on April 27,” he said.

“The Phuket Governor and I well know what exactly happened here. We just wanted to get it done. After the demolition is finished, work will begin on the photography museum to honour HM The King and Queen,” he added.

V/Gov Chokdee said it was important foreigners to understand what was happening at Surin Beach.

“We are not destroying Phuket. We are doing the right things as decided must be done in 2014,” he said.

Two large backhoes brought to the beach began razing the buildings on the stroke of 9am, under the protection of Navy personnel led by Lt Sompop Kamkana of the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command along with scores of police.

Among the officials present were Cherng Talay Tambon Administration (OrBorTor) chief MaAnn Samran and Thalang District Chief Wikrom Jaakthi.

Watching from a distance were more than 100 people who massed at the entrance to the beach, as military personnel denied them access to the site while the demolition continued.

Some of those among the crowd voiced their support for the demolitions.

“For long time, ordinary people could not get in or hang around here (along the beachfront). Now that the businesses have gone, we can come here and sit down and have a picnic,” said one onlooker, who asked not to be named.

There is enough beach in Phuket to have something for everybodys needs and likes....to raze everything is stupid...with a good beach management system they could create revenue and tax money to manage the waste water issue and and and.....but this would need some common sense and this is not to be found in their gens.......

Jome, you haven't been here long enough to recall the peaceful surrounds of a paradise beach, free of bossy beach vendors telling people to move along from public space. Good riddnce to them.

 Dream's beach club, the one business that should be torn down as the noise and light infringes on a National Marine Park is on private land, (allegedly) although it is on the beach, and the property is within 20 meters of high water mark, and the building is over 6 meters tall....So, Andy- there are plenty of beaches that have minimal business, about 2 miles on Layan for example and 4 miles o...

I think this is great, I hate the noisy beach clubs. There is a place for them as some people do like them but that place is not where they ruin the atmosphere for everyone else. I would suggest they set up in Patong or maybe on an industrial estate.

I am not aware of any illegal buildings remaining at Layan, I thought they had all gone. There is a grotesque monstrosity of a beach club that has...

I remember when local people came to Layan Beach to sit and have a picnic at the edge of the Sirinath National Park.  Then somebody gave permission to build a loud and noisy beach club right on the beach.  Goodbye peaceful enjoyment. I wonder if Dreams (formerly known as Nikki Beach Club) will be demolished on 27 April?  Somehow I don't think so.
