#2 of 121 in Things to do in Karon
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.

  • A wonderful beach, due to the large extent of virtually no one another not sitting on their heads, and if you walk into the Middle, where no sun loungers, generally great here and the sand is more creaks, unforgettable sensations. A few days were big waves, for us it was in fun. Basically speaking rest tourists, but believe me, it's better than the Chinese:) Were on Phuket, have never regretted choosing karona, and our prices are lower than the Patong food, fruit, ice cream. Now only here we will ride

  • If you are heading to Phuket for the first time, then this should be on your list of potential places to stay. The town is a good size with plenty of shops, bars, and restaurants to choose from but is...  more »
  • The beach is very large and clean. Surprised popping as snow sand. The sand is white, not yellowish. There are places where you can shelter from the Sun under trees. You can also buy on day 2 loungers and umbrella for 200 baht. Water pure, warm-somewhere around 30 degrees. Gently sloping beach. A few days in water kusalsya plankton. In the morning, when not yet a lot of swimmers, with her husband went to the stones, sailed with masks, there are beautiful colored fish, small and large, have seen starfish and sea urchins hiding between the stones. Had a rest in hotel Phuket Island view, swam in front of the hotel.

  • *** Great KARON BEACH *** One of the so many nice beaches in Phuket ... KARON BEACH. Very clean and clear sea water (which is lately not common anymore in these areas). Not a Super Busy beach in water sports, which makes it also quieter and peaceful. Sun beds and sun umbrellas available at 200 baht the whole set (2 sun beds + umbrella) Night time as in other towns ... lots of markets to buy whatever you need and don't need ;)
  • Karon Beach is third-longest beach on Phuket Island. Located on the west coast, between Patong to the north and Kata to the south, Karon Beach is the one of the most popular holiday destinations in Phuket. The beach itself has excellent snorkelling (and even diving) spots at its southern end and is wide enough for beach goers to never feel crowded. It's a peaceful place to relax and enjoy beer, beach and sun.
  • Long beach with clean soft sand and palm trees. Umbrella rentals are available. Cafes, restaurants within walking distance. Major cons: no public toilets, rather annoying vendors.
  • Please read or risk health Although the speech is beautiful it has the potential to make you very sick-most tourist don't realize that the speech is contaminated with sewage and human waste I can potential he cause life-threatening illness. Be very careful before swimming because there is one off numerous areas. I'm currently writing this review from a hospital bed in Thailand as a visitor got very sick with bacteria after swimming in the ocean here
  • Beautiful free beach. Bring a mat or a towel. Beach chair will cost you 200 baht each. Gentle waves from the Andaman sea. Can catch sunset if the sky are clear.
