Go to this beach.

Our favourite beach in this area, on the day we were there it was clean with good access and shopping not too far away.

Supposedly there are beach cleanup patrols everyday from 9-5 but the entire week I've been here the trash has been piling up and getting worse, lots of broken glass and bottles, keep kids away and shoes on!

I was really disappointed with this beach. There was seaweed and resorts everywhere. The tide came right up and wet everything. I wouldn't come to this beach.

Great beach been going there for over 15 years. However Phukets unrelenting hunger for building and tourism will eventually lead to beaches such as this becoming overcome by uncaring tourists and local greed. Phuket has a massive litter problem and too much traffic. I could not believe how fast the flora and fauna is disappearing and the other islands are... More

Kata Noi is a picturesque quiet beach just around the headland from Kata Beach. The main users are guests from the Katathani Beach Resort hotel which runs along 3 quarters of this beach. Access to this beach from the road is through some steps on the north side of the beach, or through a narrow passage which separates 2 parts... More

This beach is in my opinion the prettiest beach in Phuket and the best for families. It still has activities for hire all the way along, and plenty of bars, restaurants and shops, all the good stuff about Thailand but not as hectic as Patong.

We go every 2 years and it never gets boring..A perfect family getaway! We always stay in Karon and visit everyday to Kata. The best place to have a drink and watch the sunset is on the beach. Just don't go swimming at night as it can be hard to predict the waves and the rips.

Constantly hit with a plastic bag or other random plastic in the water, they need garbage cans by the beach. Other than that, it would be really pretty.

This is probably the best "popular" beach in phuket. It's quite crowded with tourists but theres still loads of space to chill, and its very clean as well!! The waves here are really high so I wouldn't recommend for small kids though.

Thank Pinkyyyy
