Best of Kata Beach Guide

Print this guide 
Kata Beach
Just to the south of Karon lies Kata, a laid-back town with two stunning beaches. Kata Yai is the bigger beach, and if you’re not the type to lounge on the sand all day, you can rent practically any type of water-sports equipment here. Kata Noi, on the other hand, is quieter and smaller—ideal for a lazy day. Want a break from the beach? TripAdvisor travelers recommend taking a local Thai cooking class or going elephant trekking.

Visitors are welcome to take a tour of the facilities and meet the hundreds of dogs and dozens of cats, and after the tour you can stay for the day to play with the animals. Rather than a "dog pound," Soi Dog's shelter is an uplifting environment where dogs and cats receive high quality care. Free. Monday to Friday, 9 am to 12 noon, 1 pm to 3.30 pm.
