  1. In the image below, the strip of sand adjacent to the water seems to be of a lighter shade than the sand farther back from the water, where the men are standing. Is this due to a shadow or to a steeper angle of decline? Picture source: https://www.thairath.co.th/content/1171370
  2. What does the Thai text of the inscription on this boundary marker mean? Image source: https://www.thairath.co.th/content/1171370
  3. Thank you, mikebike, this is exactly the definition I, and I believe many others, have been waiting for. The only thing you forgot to include is a link to the particular Thai law that gives this definition, without which your statement is unfortunately not authoritative and we are back to square one.
  4. What does land that has been eroded by the sea look like, as compared to land that has not been eroded? Looking at the photo below, can one recognise what land has been eroded and what has not been eroded?
  5. I don't think the Land Department can go beyond installing border markers. Additional physical delimiters such as a wall, fence, hedge, etc are up to the owner. In the case of this hotel, they obviously want to allow their guests an unobstructed view of, and unfettered access to, the sea and for this reason built no physical barrier.
  6. As beach-goers, we tend to see the sand-covered area along the seashore as the beach. This may, however, not be and most likely is not the definition of "beach" in the relevant Thai law, which is why I have issued the challenge to find this law. I know it is not the definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, where I looked it up earlier, but this is beside the point in a discussion of; the only thing that counts is the definition given in the law.
  7. I thought I had nailed it, but it is not the Civil and Commercial Code. Is section 1336 reads as follows: The challenge is still on.
  8. The above post earlier in this topic gives a pointer. Who is first to find this law and post the cited section here?
  9. If a Thai law says so, what is the name of the law and how does it define "beach"? I am genuinely curious.
  10. Pardon me, I was too hasty. There is still room for discussion, from the photo below it is not clear where the spot from where the complainant was sent away was, on the privately-owned area or the public area.
  11. This photo you mention puts the discussion into perspective. One part of the area covered by sand, the part closer to the hotel, in the photo to the left of the concrete boundary markers, is privately-owned property, the other part is public land. End of the discussion, it would seem. Image source: https://www.phuketgazette.net/news/part-beach-front-dusit-thani-laguna-privately-owned-land-office
  12. They can, but do they have a legal right to it?
  13. You have read this in some posts made by somebody who stated that this was the case in Canada.
  14. If there is a law saying that beaches are "King's Beach", a clause in a local or regional Beach Regulation that is contrary to that law is invalid and cannot be enforce if challenged in a court.
  15. Perhaps a distinction should be made between a "private beach" annd a "privately-owned beach" A beach may be private because nobody else is there, in the case of beach that is the subject of this thread apparently because persons have been hired to keep other people away. A beach is privately owned if a person, natural or juristic, has a land title deed for it.
