Karon Beach, Karon

(4,600+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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 world travel planner, Karon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Karon Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
