The report said a long strip of trash bags, empty bottles and small pieces of wood mars the beach and oil pollutes the water, creating a foul-smell.

A canvas deckchair operator at the beach said the wind and water at this time of the year continue to bring garbage in from Si Chang island.

The operator said he and other villagers had tried to gather up and dispose of trash and debris along the beach but more kept washing up.
