Karon Beach, Karon

#2 of 235 in Beaches in Thailand
Head to Karon Beach for a stretch of golden sand lined with palm trees and buffered by the welcoming waters of Phuket's coast. Badly damaged by the tsunamis of 2004, the beach has since recovered. Popular with tourists and offering a range of businesses to meet their needs and wants, the well-located, attractive beach enjoys a reputation as a family-friendly place and a relaxing haven for couples in comparison with some of the area's more raucous, nightlife-led spots. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Karon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Karon Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Caron Beach is very nice, long wide. The sea is pure medium calm. On the edges of the beach swim colorful fish, you can do snoring. It is good to plant more palm trees so that there is more space to lie under them. It is very nice to lie in the shade of a palm tree and look at the sea.

  • Clean, soft, beautiful sand, very warm sea, clean water. The beds are comfortable, paid - 100 baht on the second line and 200 baht on the first - it is for the whole day, the price for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella, one sunbed did not sell. But the sand is so luxurious that you can wallow right on it. Walked on the beach at night, there are no lights, and never stepped even on a piece of paper - very well cleaned. The sea is smooth, but just a fairy tale, not a beach! There are rental inflatable balls, mattresses, circles, etc., water attractions, parachutes. On the beach walk swathed from head to toe merchants of fruits, swimsuits, nuts, souvenirs. Sellers...

  • So I have been here twice and spent my whole holiday here. I love this beach. It is a very long beach and the water, depth and sand is kind of different on every part. When you are facing the sea, I love the left most corner the most. You can try snorkelling around there..might catch a few fishes swimming below. There are.massage stalls, fresh fruit vendors all.over the beach. Basically you get everything related to chilling on a beach here. Enjoy!
  • Great beach if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Beautiful views. The water is amazing with loads of water rides available. Soak up some son or relax on one of the many covered beach recliners. Get a drink and why not a massage from one of the beach bars.
