Lieutenant Colonel Somphon Nakkampan of the Pattaya City Police was notified of the discovery of the body at 2:00 PM today.
Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene which was two kilometres from Koh Sak.
The male body, who was of Asian descent but unknown nationality and appeared to be in his thirties, was wearing short jeans and a black T-shirt and was face down floating in the ocean. No sign of struggle was found on his body.
Police believed that the man had been dead for at least 3 days before his body was recovered.
