The best beach on Phuket ,flat calm in high season for snorkelling, swimming, diving,etc. Great surf in the summer season , does not get too rough because Kata Beach slopes gently and is protected by an island

Beaches are to Thailand as croissants are to France, you find them everywhere and they're all heavenly. Kata Beach is no exception. Bring your beach goodies and set up camp for an afternoon of relaxation in the sun. The surf is mild, crowd size varies by season and watching the sun dip below the horizon at sunset is wildly peaceful.

Kata Beach, Formerly a fishing village has developed in harmony with nature to meet the needs of a modern tourist destination. Kata Beach is one of the best in the whole Phuket and is divided in two parts: Kata Yai (big bay) and Kata noy (small bay) divided by a small promontory. The pleasant bay of Kata, just a few minutes south of Karon Beach, entices and charms many visitors with its white sands and clear waters.
Very popular with families, Kata is an all round favourite due to its spectacular palm-lined beach, great restaurants, shops, dive shops, lively but not raucous nightlife and varied . From May to October surfers flock to catch Kata's waves and from November to April the beach is alive with sunseekers. The small island Koh Pu is at swimming distance from the beach, separated from the beach by a colourful coral reef.

Quiet beach area with food vendors at the entrance of the beach, henna vendors around the beach area, water sports activities on one side only. Clear blue sea with waves on low peak season.

An easy 30 minute scooter ride south of Patong. With much smaller crowds than Patong beach combined with it's clean and clear watered shoreline makes Kata beach of my favourite beaches in Phuket. Just to the south of the main beach is a smaller beach known as Kata Noi if you want an even more relaxed atmosphere. The town of Kata is a stark contrast to Patong offering a more mellow vibe. Easy for your mind to relax and drift while in Kata.

I liked Kata Beach alot. Originally, we stayed a night in Patong beach, but it was not exactly the scene we were looking for so we moved a bit further south to Kata beach. kata beach is smaller, more local, and they hold surfing competitions there. We also took a few island tours from Kata beach which was very conveinent.
