We went there by scooter and it wasn't worth. The place is overcrowded with tourists. It's more crowded than the Patong beach which is quite an achievement. But if you enjoy body to body experience, go there :)

This is a beautiful Thai beach but it is a bit busy and touristy. There are lots of nice hotels and bars with seating areas along part of this beach and the opposite end has a food market with reasonably priced food stalls for fresh fruit,smoothies and thai food.

This beach seemed more crowded comparing to Patong and Karon. Plenty of small snack and drink places right on the beach. Very shallow bottom, it's a long walk if you like swimming in the deep. White sands, the views around are fantastic, clear waters.

We stayed at Kata beach during high season . The beach was beautiful and clean . It was quiet in the morning , but really packed in the afternoon. Luckily, we could enjoy the beach for ourselves in the morning during breakfast time because we were staying at Boathouse Montara !

Good to walk around, not as much hustle like Patong, better if u dont want to be harrasssed. Prices for most dearer though. Exchange rates lower also then Patong. But overall great, good restaurants. Needs better coffee here.
