If you want to escape the hustle of Phuket but still have some activity around, Kata Noi is perfect. It is really stunning, not as crazy as Patong but still plenty of restaurants and people around if you wish.

It used to be much cleaner and beautiful some years ago...a very cosy beach with 5 star hotels, clear water, but no fishes sorry, should be a perfect place for serenity escape.

Kata is by far one my favorite places here in Phuket! The beach is clean and not to wavy, there's a lot of activities going on around it, like the Rip Curl Surf House and also Parasailing, Jet Ski and banana Boats, but even with all of these you can still find a quiet place to relax and enjoy the...

Kata Noi beach is a small beach with 2 resorts on it. There are no vendors on the beach to disturb you. There is however a place to hire umbrellas and beach "beds". The beach is beautiful and clean. The waters are fairly calm however a few surfers present.

I absolutely love this beach, it is a little more private than the other beaches around, great waves in the summer season. I would heed the warnings if they have red flags posted find a safer spot to swim, my wife got stuck in a riptide and had to be rescued. There also weren't to many hawkers trolling the beach!

Nice wave so it was good for surfing. The hotels surround are so sophisticated, you can actually enjoy hotel view.

Great beach but because there is a big hotel on the beach they occupy the whole piece of land in front of the beach which means..... no parking and security making SURE you dont venture on their property.... take a bit of the free serene feeling away from the beach. No restaurants or snacks!

This was my favourite beach in the tourist area of Phuket. It is a little further than many people want to go, so therefore it's not too many people there and it tends to be more adults. This makes it perfect for someone who wants to hang at the beach, but would like some peace and quiet.

I lived here for nearly three months and have travelled to several beaches around Phuket and this was my favorite (on main land). There are awesome islands you can take a boat to, but on main land this was my favorite. Lots of restaurants, a Starbucks, lots to do.
