“great beach”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

You need to pay for your sun lounge which was only 200bht..you have a constant stream of sellers trying to sell you things but its not too bad as they go quickly when asked to..We enjoyed the fact that they serve you drinks and food and are extremely polite..

“Glorious sunsets,sand and low culture persuits”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Many visitors,we noticed,on arrival,head straight for a beach resort and don't leave it for the duration of their vacation. We think,they miss the opportunity to discover several historical and cultural sites to complement the beachside attractions,with a lush,hilly interior,worth exploring.
Phuket's most developed 3 km long Hat Patong is almost a city by-the-sea. Its lively during the dat and buzzes during the night,with a vibrant mix of hotels,eateries,bars ,sand and nightclubs.
South of Patong are the lovely twin beaches of Karon and Kata,with long streches of sand lined with accommodations. Kata,though has small bays and is prettier and more sheltered,with a number of good restaurants on the headland.
To me,for sheer beauty,Aonai Harn, a bay near the southern tip of Phuket , home to exclusive yacht clubs, has without a doubt,the most beautiful beach on the island
My femme and i head to Cape Promthep for the most romantic sunsets and wonderful views.

“Worst beach in Phuket”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Over crowded with pushy hawkers put a downer on our visit here. The beach itself is quite nice, but our experience of the people there made it a one time visit.
