This is a lot nicer than Patong (only 10 minute drive) the beach is a lot cleaner and there are less people hassling you on the beach. The waves are a bit flat but are perfect for just hanging in the water. There are people selling jet skis rides and other water activities. Lot more families just hanging out. Nice... More

If you are in PHUKET you are advised to visit Karon Beach. From here one can see Excellent view of all the three beaches. One can opt for phuket city day tour to see Karon Beach. On the way to city tour you will also see wind mill and a great view of phukets market.

The water clarity was not what I expected but on calm mornings you can see your feet when you're up to your neck. We saw some beautiful sunsets... More

Quiet area away from the hub of Patong but the noise of the tuk tuks music gets a bit loud. The main shopping is ok up the street and the best conversion $ we found was up near the temple at the top of the Main Street. Was a mile better every day. Be careful where you park if you... More
