Really nice beach. A lot of vendors trying to sell their wares which can become annoying as they are approaching you every few minutes. The sea is lovely and the snorkeling was ok but visibility wasn't as good as Karon purely because of the number...More

The first day of our stay in Phuket we went to several beaches. We were unpleasantly surprise by some microscopic insects which kept stinging us while in the water. When we went to Kata beach, we found none.

Beautiful beach in Phuket. Crystal waters with soft waves. It does get a bit crowded from 10am to 3pm.

There's also a Premium Outlet to the east of Patong over the hill toward Phuket Town. There's brands like Nike, Timberland, RipCurl etc that have stores there.

Hello Yes the water will be ok for snorkelling and you can resent snorkelling equipment from the shop done at the beach. Hope this helps :) Cheers Oor
