Great sand and very safe bathing, beach was clean and no debris in the water, looked like there could be some surf on days (but not when we were there!) due to the amount of board rental places and offers of lessons! South end of beach had some very good cheap eateries with a cooked breakfast costing as little as... More

North end is where all the fun happens, pull up a chair have a beed ignore the sellers. Call me difficult but trying on a suit in 40 degreeC heat does not compute.

Comparatively less people than in Katong Beach but the beach is quite dirty. You will see plastics and bottles everywhere. The water is not that fantastic. Sitting around and relaxing is good idea. There are plenty of restaurants next to beach, sit and enjoy your drinks!

We went to Kata beach for the day and enjoyed every moment. The waves were huge and fun to play in. The beach itself was clean - but beware, need to keep your stuff high up on the sand because when the waves roll in everything will get wet!

Well...well..well..!! Dear readers I'll be delighted to write about a Turkish Restaurant in Kata Beach/Phuket, I visited in mid July'15. I don't think words will be enough to discribe it's excellence. I went there with my husband and another couple, whom we were introduced to this amazing Turkish restaurant in a foreign land. I'm thinking of rating it rather than... More

When you are in Phuket you will very likely visit Kata Beach. It is a long stretch of beach that offers everything from a massage on the beach to jet-ski trip. If you simply want to soak up the sun then this is a great place to do it.

We found that the water was full of rubbish. We love swimming but it got frustrating when the water had rubbish floating in it. It was fun diving in the waves but upsetting having to deal with rubbish.

Nice beach with lots of amenities (vendors selling water, snacks, coconuts) and activities (surf board rental, parasailing). Did a dive session in the morning and surf/swim in the afternoon. Water is warm and inviting! And generally, very clear. However, the surf churns up some trash, which is unfortunate.
