Day trip to Kata

Great beach! Head for the quieter end near the bottom of the bay where it is more scenic and there are some superb huts in the palm trees to have lunch or a few beers.

We visited this beach one morning and although it looks totally idilic it is spoiled by the fact there is so much litter in the sea. There are sun beds available to hire on the beach. We were not bothered by sellers. It was fun to play on the waves. We will visit again but it would be so much... More

Great place for some fun in the sea! You can swim or do other activities like parasailing, banana boat etc. Great for fun for groups and not too crowded. Do stop at the road side stalls at the end of the beach for cold coconut water and hot food before you head back.

We expected crystal clear water.....but it wasn't always the case! Sometimes the water was dirty, with plastic objects in it...and other times it was clear, but not like Phi Phi islands!!!! Don't expect the Caribbean water colour!!

Were going to visit some nearest islands to snorkel, but decided to find some beaches suitable for snorkeling on Phuket itself. And Kata Noi is absolutely marvelous for its marine life. Also there are almost no waves which adds to the clear view. Enjoy!

Really nice beach, white sand and clear water for swimming. I can easily spend a half-day here. Ppl are complaining about the crowd but I didn't experience it when I was there so I guess it is not crowded all the time, just choose your timing right and you will have a quiet beach. Basic facilities are provided.

We came to Kata beach a couple of times during our trip. Short ride away by moped from Karon. Lifeguards always present. Please take note of rip tide information. Worth a visit

It is a very nice beach, not very long but beatyful due to the green surroundings which cover the whole beach area. Now also with umbrellas and chairs. Take a taxi or Tuk Tuk from nearby and you will be there soon. You can visit Kate Hill for a splendy view of the coast line.

Beautiful beach to spend the day In front of Katathani resort, but open to all.Grab a umbrella and recliner for 2 for 200 baht a day and enjoy a clean safe beach in a beautiful setting.Life feels pretty good here!
