The beach itself is nice: enough room to lay on sand, never crowdy during my stay at Kata and of course clear and lovely sea water. However I don't share the opinion the close shops and restaurants are the adventage. In my opinion they are too many and too close to the resting area.

Kata Beach is beautiful. Lots of room, lots of places to eat. Shops to look in and markets to stroll through. The beach itself is beautiful - amazing sunsets.

Kata Beach is nice and lively place. It´s close to the restaurants and shops. And Surf House of Phuket is in front of the beach. So there are activities also.

We spent several days here (even though we stayed on Karon) because we loved the crystal clear calm water, the amazing sunsets, the ability to walk easily on the beach, and the paddle board rentals on the southern part! Most families stick to the southern end with the hotels, so if you have kids, I suggest heading there. If you... More

Well, the title says it all. We spent many nice afternoons walking on this beach and then enjoying a sun downer at the 'Ska Bar' which is tucked away in the Southern corner of the beach. Only downside is the jet ski's! Apart from that a beautiful place to visit.

Beautiful beach with many support options but can be a bit hectic. Lot of options for drinks, food, massages, etc. Very easy to rent an umbrella for 200baht. Many people selling things can get slightly annoying - perhaps I need a shirt saying 'I don't want to buy anything' Had a lot of fun renting jet skis and paddle boards.... More
