Karon Beach, Karon
(3.8/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Long beach for a walk, but lack of trees for shelter a bit of the Sun if you want to lie down. The waves are violent and therefore not recommended for children

  • Clean beach! Yellow crusty sand! In the rainy season the sea shtormit, you can jump up and down on the waves. Be careful, bathe only in permitted places on the beach, otherwise the waves can pull in the sea, you can drown!

  • Rested a week and a half, a remarkable place. Beach clean long enough. Really liked the sunset stroll back and forth, when the sand underfoot so pleasantly crispy.
