Such a nice beach. Perfect for a good swim or surf. Very cool restaurants around and the beach is a little crowded but generally very nice. Easy to park up if you have a moped or car.

First visited in 2015 and stayed for 2 weeks... just returned from Thailand and we could not go past a few nights at Kata Beach. Local to great markets and restaurants. The sunset is just incredible!

This beach is less crowded than Patong beach and cleaner too. I caught a motortaxi to get there. The coastline is good for taking photos.

Beautiful beach with crystal blue water and great waves, a rarity! Life guards are on duty as well for those not quite as confident in the waves.

Howdy! Here I am again enjoying Kata with friends. I come here because of the beach and location. From here your far enough away from the mayhem of Patong and yet it's quickly accessible if needed. There's good food all around and the beach is...More

I´ts really cheap. I think around 15 bahts. August would be a little expensive than low season months. I went on november and it was really cheap, but you should not worry for a huge incrementation of prices.
