An upbeat Pattaya News said in their story on the restoration of the beach in Pattaya that it was just a matter of time before the tourists came flooding back to the sands. 
 
But they did not make any reference to sea water quality. 
 
They were reporting on a meeting that said 400 meters of the restoration work was done meaning that 100 meters was back in the hands of beach operators.
 
A further 300 meters will definitely be done by year's end giving operators a further 100 meter stretch to earn a living. 
 
The sand is coming from Koh Rangwian in a 430 million baht project that will see the beach widened by 3.5 meters, said the media. 
 
The sand is plentiful enough and of sufficient quality for the needs of Pattaya. 
 
The beautification began near the Dusit Thani hotel back in January but has suffered some stop/start problems. However, now everything is running smoothly. 
 
Pattaya News said that the "Pattaya Model" will make the resort a top class world beach destination and the new sands will have the tourists flooding back. 
 
However, Thaivisa notes they did not mention the state or quality of the sea itself in their story.

They just have to make sure they have plenty of sand to fill the sea, a 100 meters or so.

Clean or not clean, sand or no sand people will not be flocking to Pattaya from the traditional countries that have done so this last 30 years. The days of ever increasing numbers from Europe the States and Auss are long gone

Thats not sand.  Its just dirt mixed with some gravel probably taken free from a construction site.

There is no beach in Pattaya anyway.  The sea around there is a toxic waste dump not to mention the raw sewerage.
