Karon Beach, Phuket Reviews

  • *** Great KARON BEACH *** One of the so many nice beaches in Phuket ... KARON BEACH. Very clean and clear sea water (which is lately not common anymore in these areas). Not a Super Busy beach in water sports, which makes it also quieter and peaceful. Sun beds and sun umbrellas available at 200 baht the whole set (2 sun beds + umbrella) Night time as in other towns ... lots of markets to buy whatever you need and don't need ;)

  • Karon Beach is third-longest beach on Phuket Island. Located on the west coast, between Patong to the north and Kata to the south, Karon Beach is the one of the most popular holiday destinations in Phuket. The beach itself has excellent snorkelling (and even diving) spots at its southern end and is wide enough for beach goers to never feel crowded. It's a peaceful place to relax and enjoy beer, beach and sun.

  • Big beautiful beach. Wonderful for sunset. People put on small fire work shows and parasailing happening over head. Looks pretty dangerous but fun to watch. There’s a local that doesn’t appear to be strapped in in the lines of the sail stealing for the person hangin gin the harness... and they land you on the beach which didn’t look like a soft landing at all. It was a good time to watch. The sunset was incredible. Truly beautiful and not that many people as the sun starts to set. The sand is great and there’s plenty of beach. The sand has a loud squeaking noise a little bit away from the water as you kick and step through it. Kinda funny.

  • Great beach, clean and not too overcrowded. The water is clear and you can also spot some schools of fish of you look closely.

  • Long beach with clean soft sand and palm trees. Umbrella rentals are available. Cafes, restaurants within walking distance. Major cons: no public toilets, rather annoying vendors.
