Karon Beach, Karon

4.2
#2 of 232 in Beaches in Thailand
Head to Karon Beach for a stretch of golden sand lined with palm trees and buffered by the welcoming waters of Phuket's coast. Badly damaged by the tsunamis of 2004, the beach has since recovered. Popular with tourists and offering a range of businesses to meet their needs and wants, the well-located, attractive beach enjoys a reputation as a family-friendly place and a relaxing haven for couples in comparison with some of the area's more raucous, nightlife-led spots. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Karon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Karon Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • nice beach full of activities Parasailing lots people swimming sunbathing just need to swim between flags  more »
  • ... especially if you are traveling as a family with children in tow. It is about 7/8 km south of Patong, Karon beach is the beach choice for those who want to relax but at the same time access to all amenities and comforts that you could possibly need on vacation, so bars, restaurants, hotels, sports and anything else. It extends for about 4 km, and from North to South are everything and more. Perhaps beauty is slightly lower than Kata Noi, but eventually Karon is the perfect mix. In the South the beach is wider and so much better in the morning when there is usually high tide that you eat at least half of the beach.

  • A very long beach in Phuket. White sand and the sea water is clear and clean. A good place to relax yourself and bring your loved one to have a leisure walk or sunbathing. Enjoyed very much to feel the wind blowing on the face.
  • Very long and beautiful beach. Very crowded but not as much in the north end. Clear water and lovely sand that is very hot at noon (201803) so bring your sandals. Stay for a magical sunset when the sky is clear, it's almost something religious about it
  • Beautiful beach which is handy for shops/bars. It can get very hot though with not alot of shade to hide in.
  • The water is clean. Lots of beach chairs. Go during high season if you want to enjoy playing in the water
  • Nice and clean beach with less crowd as compare to other beaches in Phuket like Patong. 3-4 kms away from city center with nice resorts around. You can enjoy Sun on the beach as well parasailing
