Hi, Kata Noi is one beautiful beach. The Katathani runs the length of the beach and can access the beach directly from the hotel grounds - hence why we stayed at this resort. Kata Noi is paradise. Even the Jet Ski renters have given up on this beach, therefore it is so peaceful and enjoyable.
The general public can access the beach but have to walk down quite a few steps from a cliff. All safe and secure. Some parking for a few cars available. No problem parking scooters - ample available.
There are some restaurants and bars in Kata Noi but as expected be prepared to pay a premium.
I visited with my wife and 2 young kids. This was the perfect beach for us.
However, we did hire a car and visited other beaches that were equally as beautiful.
There are many beaches in Phuket - isolated if you wish. You need to study the local map and I assure you there are some mind blowing beaches. Needless to say that you will not find any bars or amenities on these treasure beaches.,
