Not very crowded and almost a private beach. Very peaceful and quiet.Water sports are available and a small flea market is there every morning and evening. But would suggest Patong if you really wish to shop and experience the night life and entertainment.

Karon is a beautiful beach, it is much cleaner and less crowded than Patong. It is fantastic for a swim or a long beach walk.

Beaches are great but yet can be rubbish on no hotel maintains areas, garbage, empty bottles etc... Not so good to walk by as sand line is inclined on the edge of water which makes walking beat uncomfortable. Now when all "restaurants" and "shops" are cleaned from exact beach line - looks like much better!

We were based opposite the beach at The Hilton. This beach is perfect and because of it being 3km long its spacious with enough space so you can have your privacy. The sea is exactly what i like, clear waters, small waves to have some fun, water sports, the works. I especially like the little guys coming over offering coconuts... More

As we approached the beach we had to walk through a construction area, across a wooden plank and over sandbags, not the introduction to the beach I was after, the beach itself has lovely white sand that squeaks as you walk on it, and the water was a lovely temp. there is very little shade on the beach so everyone...

We went to this beach for a change from our hotel pool. It is clean, easy to get in and out of. Shade trees at the entry to the beach area. Lots of sellers on the beach, but they are not at all aggressive. Take water to drink, it is very hot on this beach. But it is a flat... More

Karon Beach, this was our first stop in Thailand and we did not realize what a beauty we had here after visiting the rest of Thailand. Karon beach is clean which is a rare thing in Thailand, beautiful, clear, gorgeous, and the market/massage area isn’t as pushy as in the rest of Phuket, the bars were fun and laid back,... More
