Kata Beach is another favourite spot for sunbathers. The beach is 10 kilometres south of Patong Beach (about 2o minutes by taxi) just beyond Karon Beach. The white sandy Kata Beach has clear waters and a great selection of shops and restaurants along the road that runs behind this palm tree-lined beach.

The beach is divided by a headland into two sections, Kata Yai and the smaller Kata Noi. Kata Noi, to the south of the headland, is usually the quietest of the two sections.


Kata Noi is our favourite of the two, bordered to the north by the Mom Tri’s Villa Royale Hotel. Much of the area behind the beach is occupied by Katathani Phuket Beach Resort.
