About Kata Beach

About Kata Beach, Thailand

This part of Phuket centers around the beach. Most sites are within walking distance. But, if you're feeling adventurous, try renting a motorbike for the day.

The pure white shoreline is lined with palm trees that provide shade even on the hottest of days. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants near the beach, so you don't have to go far for a refreshing cocktail.

Kata Beach is not as well-known as some of the other beaches on Phuket, so there's always space for more visitors. There aren’t any underwater drop-offs on this beach, so it's become a favorite spot for families.

Come nighttime, the area transforms from quiet and relaxing to exciting and energetic. But, don't worry, it's not too loud. You'll still be able to enjoy a nice evening at the seafront restaurants looking out across the water.

What to do in Kata Beach, Thailand

The main thing to do at Kata Beach? Soak up the sun. Don't forget your sunscreen as it gets up to a fantastic 95F between April and May.

If you're looking for a bit of excitement and want to try something new, come to Phuket between May and October—that's when the great waves roll in and surfers of all abilities flock to the beach.

If you prefer to spend your vacation under the water, try diving and snorkeling around the island. There are several hidden gems for you to find.

You could be forgiven for staying on the beach all vacation—it has all you need, after all—but, there are other things to do too.

One place on every visitor’s list should be the Karon viewpoint. Here, you'll find unrivalled views of Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beaches.

Looking for a bit of culture? Visit the Kata temple at the foot of the mountains. Built in 1832, it's still in use today, but you're welcome to have a look around.
