"Kata Beach" Kata and Karon Beach Tip by Adeline_Foo

Kata and Karon Beach, Phuket: 48 reviews and 134 photos


Kata and Kata Noi are two scenic beaches just south of Karon. Kata, the larger of the two, is one of the nicest beaches on the island. It is a small bay, not much more than a kilometer long wrapped in green mountains. Although the beach is public, it is dominated by the huge Club Med Resort, which has taken practically all the prime landsite. Kata village runs behind Club Med, with most of the development concentrated at either end of the bay.

Kata has a nice balance, with a fair portion of nightlife places combined with good amenities to go with a relaxed atmosphere, and natural beauty in abundance. It is a place ideal for those who don't like everything right in their face, yet with enough going on to keep most people happy.

Further south is Kata Noi Beach, another beautiful bay. The beaches are great for families, there is good snokerlling and the water is usually calm.

Address: Kata Noi Beach, Karon, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83100, Thailand
Directions: At the southwest Coast of Phuket.
