Awesome Beach across Novotel Karon Resort , not too crowded and relaxed , soft sand , options for water sports although pricey ( 1500 THB for 30 mins JetSki Ride )

If you like beaches that offer long walks on hard packed sand and wonderful views of ocean, mountains, and a Big Buddha, you can't do better than here. Best to check on-line for time of low tides and then come for your walk.

Beautiful Sands and warm sea with life guards on hand. Fruit sellers and usual sellers of items but not pushy water sports available too. Great place to spend your time.

Karon vs Patong? If you have kids, Karon is the better place. The streets are less X-rated. Cool because the beach is long & very pristine. It has the beach chairs umbrellas, the mom & pop food stalls and 5 star resorts. Snorkeling for beginners...More

Not bad - same same and NOT different to any other. Embarrassing foreigners abroad. Usually shops and bars. We didn’t go on to the beach as it was always busy and we don’t like to sit with others.

Long and not crowded. You may find lots of stores around. But I would like it to have more shadowed places.

Usually going early - by 8am. The operation does depend on wind conditions on the day.
