Reef Safe Sunscreen in Thailand
If you have been planning a holiday to Thailand recently than you may have been advised that many of our national marine parks have capped the number of visitors and scuba divers allowed to visit the park each day. Some dive sites and popular attractions like Maya Bay in the Phi Phi marine reserve have been shut off completely to tourism.
One reason this has happened is because the ever increasing number of tourists visiting the marine parks covered in toxic sunscreen have caused heartbreaking damage to the environment and especially the coral reefs there. Now many of those marine parks, including the Similan Island’s have banned the use of chemical sunscreen inside the reserve and the rest of Thailand’s marine parks are likely to follow suit.
We are asking for cooperation from tourists to use sun creams without Oxybenzone (BP-3), Octinoxate, Methybenzylid Camphor and Butylparaben. Phuket News
That means you now need reef safe sunscreen in Thailand if you want to protect yourself from the sun on your scuba diving, snorkeling and boating tours. Help protect the coral reef’s by only using reef friendly sun cream.
