  • Beach is very nice but cutt off from the main road where you want to drink and eat !! Apart from that it is a nice laid back atmosphere  more »

  • Beautiful beach, waves can be pretty big though
  • I have been there and it is beautiful. I took some surf lesson and it is very good if you start learning surfing because the waves are not that big so it is good to start surfing. Also the water is amazing: clear and beautiful. Other activities are offered too. Everything is so laid-back there and you can just enjoy and destress
  • Lovely beach not too busy, beach bars around, good for people watching.
  • Good beach. Very crowded
  • Amazing family beach! We were staying at OZO Hotel & luckily the Kata Beach was just walking distance, it is a very family oriented, clean, cozy & not crowded. Once you arrive all you have to do is rent a sun-bed with shade (100 baht per one) and then a get cold fresh fruits smoothies or coco-nut juices (60 baht each and 20 baht for water) and then enjoy the golden sand and crystal water. Kids enjoyed it very much, just make sure you get put enough sun-block as we all got sun-burn from the direct-sun without noticing. You can book some rides and water-sports activities from there, just make sure you bargain and negotiate, usually they ask higher so there is always a room for a discount.
