A clean beach with clean waters. Very little in terms of sellers on the beach. We were not hassled once. Fun waves. Great if you like to walk along the waters edge as the beach is quite long. Plenty of bars, restaurants and shops opposite the beach.

Been here for the past two nights and what's pretty evident is that the place is clean, litter wise but the are some smells that belong in a sewer. The vendors and shops all sell pretty much the same thing so you can try to bargain but all stick to the same lowered price. Like they all got together and... More

Lovely beach with golden sand. Not too crowded and you can do all the water sports there. Swimming is great in the clear water although it can be quite rough at times but my children were able to swim in it who are not confident swimmers but loved the trill of the waves!!!!

Our stay at Thavorn Palm was excellent! Our experience was only made better by the service of Jack mandarin. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay that much enjoyable.

A great beach - lots happening and a good atmosphere. Clean and enjoyable. Lots of cafes/shops nearby and plenty of playground equipment for little ones.

Great beach with white sand and not very crowded (at least not when we went). Not a party beach like Patong so good for families and quieter. You can rent umbrellas and beds for the day. We went back at sunset and bought lanterns from one guy, lit them up and released them up in the air. There are a... More

Karon is one of our favourite beaches. Warm water, white sand close to town many activities to do. We loved going here with our 6 year old.

It is very hard to fault this beach, although there are sun-loungers available, the vast majority of the beach is clean, soft, open sand. This slopes gently into the sea ideal for swimming and some body surfing. There are some areas reserved for powered water sports but still loads of room left. It is just under two miles long.
