Karon Beach - Review

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

  • A very long beach in Phuket. White sand and the sea water is clear and clean. A good place to relax yourself and bring your loved one to have a leisure walk or sunbathing. Enjoyed very much to feel the wind blowing on the face.

  • Very long and beautiful beach. Very crowded but not as much in the north end. Clear water and lovely sand that is very hot at noon (201803) so bring your sandals. Stay for a magical sunset when the sky is clear, it's almost something religious about it

  • Beautiful beach which is handy for shops/bars. It can get very hot though with not alot of shade to hide in.

  • The water is clean. Lots of beach chairs. Go during high season if you want to enjoy playing in the water

  • Nice and clean beach with less crowd as compare to other beaches in Phuket like Patong. 3-4 kms away from city center with nice resorts around. You can enjoy Sun on the beach as well parasailing
