The water was spectacularly warm. However I was regularly dodging plastic packets, plastic bottles, bottle caps and general dirt. It appears that very little effort is made to keep the beach and water clean. Certainly would not qualify for BLUE Flag status

Kata beach is a beautiful, clean beach and we had a lovely time there. The only concern we had was the surfboard shop on the beach they told my husband that he broke th board when he never, he had no option but to pay them as more and more Thai people came over the situation became quite unsettling.

Not the best beach in Phuket but the abundance of massages and food along the stretch makes up for it.

Extremely saddened after regularly staying in Kata Beach for the past 15 years. Last September they took away the sun loungers and umbrellas. Stories and rumours abound as to whether it was the military getting fed up of the mafia or about tax. Whatever the reason for doing so, and whoever decided this. Big mistake. Huge. No loungers, no umbrellas... More

Days at the beach, fruit cocktails, hammocks beneath shaded palms, massages with a sea view, you really do get it at kata beach. Its the island holiday beach and a shipwreck adds to the atmosphere. If you have your own umbrelka and mat, rather carry it with you as shaded spots are hard to come by. The water is excellent... More

We stayed at the Kata Beach Resort and visited the beach every day of our 17 nights. The beach as ever is magnificent. WE go there for the surf, which sadly was only there for two of the days. Not to be disheartened still enjoyed the beach. However, as many will know, the beach umbrellas and lazy boys have been... More

Has claimed itself as one in Phuket's best beach collections. And that's so true! The beach is very sandy and you feel so firm when you strut your stuff on the beach. However, at very both ends of the beach there are some garbages left, so avoid the extreme ends of the beach.

Very clean no hawkers. The water is crystal clear and the sand is clean. No issues with people trying to sell you things.
