We stayed at Nai Harn and there is a great beach there. We took a cab to Kata beach for a change one morning and where so disappointed. The beach was packed and dirty. We couldn't hire a sun bed at they where all full. It's really like Benidorm in Thailand. So within half an hour we got back in... More

When visited September 2016, weather was not good, rain and wind. But that made it different, suffers active and the beach not that crowded, as it can be when weather is good. Best times visiting early morning or just before sunset.

Coming from summer in Australia I thought the heat wouldn't be an issue but wow it was SUPER hot! Scorching some days. Suncream is pricey here too so bring your own. You should purchase your umbrellas and not bother with the beach rentals as you are too crammed and ontop of each other. The beach is lovely first thing in... More

Walked every morning at dawn and it was extremely peaceful and relaxing as beach was nearly desserted. Later in the day, it was hectic and crowded.

A very nice beach, especially very good for families with children. 3 lokal restaurants at the end of the beach, with local disches and local prices, gives the possibility to stay om the Beach for lunch.
