Huge beach with plenty of sand for all the tourists. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We also really enjoyed Ni Harn and Ao Sane which are both a little more low key. For all things Phuket I found phuket101.net to be really helpful.

Stayed at the top end of Karon beach during the beginning of August for our family Holiday. Realised it was the beginning of the Monsoon season so factored in it would be quieter and wetter than usual. What I didn't expect was how dirty everything was, junk, household rubbish, plastic bags, old shoes, rotting food, stray animals defecating on the... More

Beautiful beach, patrolled, flagged areas, clear waters and clean sand. Great way to spend an hour or so cooling off.

Loved it stayed in Woraburi resort which was opposite the beach. The beach was very clean and the sea was clear. Not busy at all at times we were the only ones in a patch of 200 yards. There are water sports available. The waves are big and quite powerful but safe. We weren't hassled by the beach sellers once... More

Ocean was great to swim in - the beach was quiet - you can get a massage on the beach or order a cocktail- plenty of restaurants near by.

Karon Beach is usually a beautiful place however I have never been to Phuket in August and all of the rubbish that was washed up on the beach was very off putting. There were many big logs and branches which had obviously washed up from the sea which would make it dangerous to swim in. All of the Beach Umbrella's... More

Having previously stopped at Patong Beach. Definitely preferred Karon Beach. Much less touristy and the beach was lovely. Not sure I would want to spend a full holiday here but a nice place to visit while traveling.

Unfortunately we chose a wet week to stay at the Northern end of Karon Beach. It is a lovely stretch of sand but heavy rain made it unpleasant most days and rips made swimming dangerous. Evidently, after we left, it was much more inviting, with manageable waves and a safe zone patrolled by life guards. Can't complain, it is monsoon... More

The beach is simply beautiful. It is great for surfing and is relatively quiet and substantially less tourism than Patong beach.
