a great beach to have a morning walk on and look at the many and varied bits of pollution and rubbish washed up, Swimming you will regularly have bits of plastic, bottles and assorted junk bump into you or wrap around you

Have been in Patong for over 3 weeks and have just started going further afield only to meet with unfriendly shop owners, not just the Thai either worst was the water board place. And at the toilet charges 5thb, which is fine, but it was for my 3 year old son and the man "running" the toilets wouldn't let my... More

one of the best beaches I have been to around phuket, the best part is hiring a jet ski and going too and around the small island from the beach....loved the vibe here with sea facing restaurants..

This was our 'local' beach while in Phuket. Unfortunately no beach chairs but still some shaded areas. Clean beach and very nice for a jog or walk first thing in the morning before it gets busy. There is a good surf and kayak rental place in the far left corner of the beach as you look at the sea.

Good service from life-guard/drinks stations. There are umbrellas and beach mats sold at... More

Great beach but you can only get to the beach from either end. There is a council building that takes up the whole centre access to the beach. So best to find accommodation at the Paton end on the cliffs leading down to the beach. For the ultimate holiday, Kata beach has the ultimate accommodation. Kata Rocks is simply the... More

What a beautiful beach with a little island in one side, the parasailing was beautiful longer than in Patong, the beach clean and enjoyable, not as crowded as other beaches I visited, I certainly recommend it to families. It has a great location for those who want to explore the entire island. Kind of the same distance to the pier... More

I just love Kata beach. It's not as busy as other beaches in Phuket especially those in Patong or nearby. It has beautiful crystal clear waters with lovely white sand. All amenities are close by including local restaurants and shops. What more could you want? 10/10.
