Karon beach is a beautiful stretch of beach. However it can be quite dangerous at that time of year with a heavy dumping beach break with a strong rip, particularly on a run-out tide. Always take care

The sea off Karon beach is very rough and the rip tides are very strong between May to end October. Sadly we have a lot of drownings off this beach. Rather select a hotel with a nice swimming pool.

Have fun!
