Beaches have been closed in Krabi due to poisonous Portugese Man-of-War jellyfish. Visitors to the Phi Phi islands have been warned to stay out of the water. The jellyfish, also know as blue bottles, have been spotted at Nai Yang, Nai Thon and Layan beaches.
From the Phuket Gazette –
Poisonous Portuguese Man-of-War back at the beaches
“We have asked lifeguards to make sure beach goers are aware of the blue bottle danger, which should be over once the monsoon season ends,” said the park chief.
Warning notices also went up today at nearby Maya Bay and Phi Phi Ley in Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park.
