Not too bad, but not too clean, many people, water was ok. A bit disappointing for a "white sand clear water Thai beach"...

We are currently staying at Centara Grand Beach Resort which is situated at the Patong end of Karon Beach, the beach is great for a walk and there is a lot to do, the sea is also lovely for a swim but there is a strong current so beware of that.

We spend time on this beach which we could see from our hotel balcony. Gorgeous clear, turquoise/blue waters and a beautiful sandy beach

Our first day in Karon we decided to go to the beach.. it was sooo overcrowded and a struggle to get a sunbed. Even so when we did I felt like i should of been having lunch with the person next to us we were sat that close!

The sand is lovely when you get down to the sea however the further back you go it is very dirty and full of rubbish.. I.e. cigarette buts, dead rats, plastic etc.
We visited Nai Harn beach and this was 100 x's better! Don't waste your days on Karon beach.. get a took took to Nai Harn, it is well worth it!

For us, this was a quieter beach to go to compared to Patong up the road and we are so happy we stayed here.
Highly recommend the beach, very clean and clear water and no issues with swimming and rips or undertows. The beach is up there with the best I have swam in anywhere in the world and I have been to some places.
