Karon Beach, Karon
(3.8/5 based on 3,800+ 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.

  • Karon beach is a just a beautiful beach far superior than others close by. Water was clean, waves for great, all the standard entertainment you expect to see. Great place to stay and visit 
  • Beautiful stretch of white sand unfortunately Beach very dirty! You'll find everything: plastic, cans, waste pic nic,... too bad! Little shadow and with the new political few sunbeds and umbrellas as shows 10% of beach umbrella and 90% without

  • We were on Karon Beach beginning december. Nice beach but a part high waves. The water was hot and ready. You can walk from one end to the other in about an hour.
