We were staying at Old Phuket and the beach is so close so are the markets, really great location, easy to get to Patong for a night out and our day trips.

We stayed two nights in this area. I liked it as there were markets and shops just a short walk. There were plenty of eateries and the place had a nice feel.

I love this beach because I hate a crowded beach. I visited this beach that near to my hotel (Karona Resort & Spa) and almost nobody there. The sea and sand was very clean, very quite so you can take a good picture here. No water sport attraction available.

We had a great trip to Karon Beach in January 2014 and one of the best parts was the relaxation at the beach. Even though there was a small cost for renting the chairs/umbrellas it was well worth it to avoid the hot sun and be relaxed and comfortable. We were thinking of going back again to visit next year... More

We went on a low season so it was not crowded at all. Beach was peaceful, nice stretch where you can walk. Waves were a bit big at that time, good enough to surf for beginners. But there are life guards around anyway. You can also do jet skiing & para sailing. I'd say this is a great beach for... More

Beach was clean & beautiful. A more relaxed & less populated beach than Patong beach. But not many water activities around. Good place for those who are looking for a quite beach.

The soft cool breeze in your face is an awesome feeling. Specially for a person from a city which doesn't have a beach in a thousand km radius. A drink in your hand, nice waves, a clear night, nice cool sand, good company..what else could you ask for..

Karon beach is a little bit crowded in the touristic peak season (not as Patong), but it's a great beach with white soft sand. Worth the short trip from Patong beach. Many restaurants located in the streets near the beach.
