Karon beach is one of the popular beaches of Phuket. It is a great place to enjoy everything related to the sea. There is the sun, the sand, the cocktails, the water-sports and so much more.

It is the second largest beach in Phuket and a real beach-lovers paradise. The best time to visit it is from November to April when the sea is calm and the sun is very pleasant. There is never a dearth of activities to try out in this place. The beach also has a very lively nightlife with bars and pubs to explore in the wee hours of the night. Bargain stores for clothes and other articles line the area leading towards the beach so there is a lot to do for the certified shopaholics. In the end, nothing can compare to a long leisurely walk down this beach in Phuket. Head to the Karon Beach to make the most of your 3 days in Phuket.

Karon Beach, Phuket Reviews - Write a Review

  • We preferred karon beach to kata noi. Nicer sand and waves. Gets deep reasonably quickly but still clear sea. We were here in november and beach was not over crowded. Enough people to watch and mingle with. Places to buy refreshments. Thought the parasailing was over priced at 1200 baht for 1 or 2000 for two

  • Blue clear water. 100 bat cost beach seat per day. Close to it a lot of shops and cafes.

  • Great view.. but there is no sunset 🙁🙁

  • Nice beach. Of course the sand! Sound is weird but cool! Little bit crowded but anyway better than Patong beach.

  • The waves were not too strong and the water was clean. It wasn't too crowded so it's a good place to relax at without feeling too alone.
