Another beautiful beach

We went to the beach on our way back to Patong. You can swim there and even surfing. Its a nice place to have a picnic with the family.

Be careful of big waves in July and only swim between the flags. Great beach cafés and bars with a good local market, don't forget to bargain respectfully in the markets

Karon beach is one of finest beaches of Phuket, after Patong. Lot of resorts are located on the beach front and offer water sports.

Karon beach is so quiet compared to Patong beach and you are not annoyed very much by people trying to sell things, so you can really just enjoy and relax. It was clean for the first few days we were there but on the 4th day it was filthy with rubbish coming in from the sea from somewhere else. That... More

We stayed in Phuket in there wet season. This was great because we didn't have an onslaught of tourists. Even the rain was not bad but the beach didn't have the crystal clear water seen in pictures. This didn't spoil our holiday in the least we could still shop, eat out and swim in the pool.

Beautiful beach and very clean perfect for all to enjoy, visitors can enjoy paragliding if they have a head for heights and good waves if you prefer surfing. Lifeguards are on duty to ensure safety is taken care of.

While Karon beach is lovely for an evening walk, we would not recommend it for swimming. It is dirty and when we were there in May it was really too stormy for swimming safely.

We went in the rainy season and most days there were red flags out all along the beach, or just one small section for swimming. The water was pretty rough. You could have a splash in the shallows, but it wasn't great - probably just the time of year. It was nice to walk along the beach.

A wonderful place, where you can eat local food and shop for souveniers. The beach is full of relaxed tourists and has a wonderful atmosphere. Beautiful at sunset.
