Kata Beach

If you want to play all kinds of resources in Phuket, Patong Beach is the best choice. But Patong Beach is noisy and suitable for people who like to be busy. Karon Beach, which is about 15 minutes’ drive from Patong Beach. But obviously there are less tourists in Karon Beach, the sea is more beautiful, and the scenery is vast. The waves are strong and it is a gathering place for many surfers. There are also some nice restaurants around the Karon beach, but life is not convenient compared to Patong Beach.

Kata Beach, the popular beach following by Patong Beach, although it is about half an hour’s drive from Patong Beach, Kata Beach is not lacking of popularity. Not only its sea view is the most pleasant among the three major beaches, but the surrounding living facilities are also very convenient.
