The beach was dirty with all sorts of rubbish on it, no sunbeds to use. The location is good to get to patong about 500 bt,good selection of restraunts,lots of massage places at good rates, got fed up of being asked to have a suit made.

A few options for sunumbrella and a couple of pubs at a walking distance. We were there on a rainy day and the beach was... More

Kata beach is one of the beautiful and hot beach in Phuket, however we could not find seating chairs in the beach, (In Bali I have seen loads of Beach chairs for rent) only people are selling / renting Mattress near the Beach. Far better than Patong beach for relaxing, enjoying the sea waves, however sporting activities you will not... More

We've been to Thailand 6 times and we always stay at Kata Beach. We've tried a few different resorts but we always go to the same beach. We've been to other beaches but they're too busy. Kata is usually quieter. Great place to hire a jet ski or go para sailing. We hired a long boat which took us right... More

It's a great beach with strong waves. Not crowded, unlike Patong Beach, and the beach here is cleaner.

This beach was beautiful. We had a wonderful time here with our family. The sand was lovely and the rocks picturesque. The trash should be cleaned up daily, which did not always happen, but this was the only issue I saw. Highly recommended spot.

Phuket has so many beaches to choose from but with Kata beach ticking all the boxes why would you want to go anywhere else?! Only a stones throw away from great restuarants, bars and shopping. The beach has a good selection of water sport activites to choose from and a nice reef for snorkeling on at the South end of... More

Nice clean beach. The waves were great when we were there and didn't get too hassled by the hawkers selling their wares.
