  • White sand and refreshing water- fab!!!!worth a visit but try out of season if you like it not so busy. Lots of great places to eat like Palm Square.  more »
  • Tout its kata and tout its I was wondering here to visit and make a sober assessment of the beach. The beach is not great, about two kilometers, the entrance into the water gently sloping and long, for families with children is perfect. The sea turquoise, tepljushhee, transparent water, grass and algae are rare and in small quantities. Rubbish I have never met. At the sand, the sand on Kata whiter! than Caron, and not the other way around! This is an immutable fact of iron! On Karon beach sand redhead! And Yes, it crunches like styrofoam, but no rings, how many. Now the river vonjuchke, is stinky! It flows into the sea at the beach of kata, it stinks! It flows into the corner of Kata Beach, right near Caron, was personally seen over, and it is precisely this, the river carries on Karon beach, not on the Kata. To stink from the river you don't disturb, well take you beyond 200 meters, from the point of access to the beach, and then people will form near the river vonjuki where boats are parked and complain to the beach. The bottom line: River vonjuka is, but it does not interfere in any way, the water of the river carries to Caron, the beach is not great, clean, white sand. Beach ocnil at 4.

  • Beautiful beach, it is one of my favorite beach in Phuket, not as busy and so crowded compared with Patong Beach. It is good for surfing in summer and there are lifeguards around the swimming area, just keep looking at the flags, if it’s red, don’t go in, the current changes without you noticing it so it is best to stay safe. There's a nice beach club at the end of the beach. The water is very blue and clean.
  • Water is not cold, waves are not too strong and sand has no rocks or animals, making it perfect to swim and enjoy. For 200 baht you can have a comfortable seat in the shadows. In the rain season it was not too crowded.
  • Nice beach. Possibility of renting 2 beachchairs und 1 umbrella for Baht 200 a day. Also poosible to get food and drinks like sodas, juices etc. Sometimes same people passes by the chair which try to sell you something, but if you say no, normally they go away without any problems. We liked it there
  • Beautiful and clean beach. White sand. Low bepth and crystal water.
  • Clean, good sand and clear water but lacks facilities (changing rooms, hoses to clean sand, etc.)
