Head to Karon Beach for a stretch of golden sand lined with palm trees and buffered by the welcoming waters of Phuket's coast. Badly damaged by the tsunamis of 2004, the beach has since recovered. Popular with tourists and offering a range of businesses to meet their needs and wants, the well-located, attractive beach enjoys a reputation as a family-friendly place and a relaxing haven for couples in comparison with some of the area's more raucous, nightlife-led spots. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Karon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Karon Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Karon Beach in January 2021
Karon and Kata Beaches are beautiful and much more peaceful and less busy than Patong Beach further north. The nightlife here isn't like it is in Patong though if that's what you're looking for, but there are still some nice street stalls and restaurants along the beach front.
Clean water and short shore.
