  • Beautiful beach, it is just across the street from the main karon town where there are a ton of restaurants and shops. The beach itself, closer to the market side has a place to rent loungers etc as well as restaurants (particularly seafood) that line the length of the beach. The beach itself is relatively clean, and the sand is so soft! The water is amazing and relatively clear.

  • Lovely beach with coarse sand and clear blue waters. You could rent the benches for THB200. Waves can be strong and there are warning flags and people manning the beach, however not sure if their lifeguards.

  • Love this beach, so beautiful, clean, warm water but still refreshing on a hot day. The waves are incredible, the people are friendly, and the food offered by the local family restaurants are excellent! Love to go back for another visit.

  • Amazing beach 🏖 what can I say all of them are amazing ✌️

  • Beautiful beach with shops and bars close by.
