David sends us this observation:
On a recent stopover at Pantai Shamrock, along the Tanjung Bungah/Batu Feringghi road, I bring to your attention a condition that I feel is breaching regulations.
There is a food stall that has built on the beachside that has encroached all the way into the water thereby cutting off the beach access from left to right. This natural beach is spoilt by this encroachment.
This foodstall is also not looking very hygienic at all, very dirty tables and surroundings
Also along this front, there is garbage being disposed onto the banks, upon which it is swept into the sea during high tide.
There are also other foodstalls which have made “permanent storage areas ” by the side and this mars the whole place
Penang is known and liked for its blend of nature and life. This spoils it all.
Could the authorities look into this situation please as its a shame that such a beautiful beach front is permitted to get to this stage. Its shameful for visitors to come to this beach when other beaches in the region are performing better than us in Penang these days.
