Description
Walk on the powdery white sand at Karon Beach in Phuket, and you may not want to leave! This beach is a luxurious three miles long, allowing you to feel less crowded than on other beaches. From ... Read more
November to April, you can enjoy the still blue water; in the other months the water remains as blue and beautiful, but be aware of more waves and some swells. Sometimes sea turtles lay eggs at night, so you may see the eggs or a stray turtle during the early hours of the day or along the beach at night.

Practically every beach in Phuket is beautiful but they can be busy and packed which is why I love Karon beach. There are lots of isolated stretches here where you can lay out on your towel and soak up some sun. Bring your book and enjoy an hour or two at the beach.

The beach was a little crowded, we visited during peak season, but the water was perfect and the sand was clean. It was our favorite on Phuket Island.

This beach was a million times better than Patong Beach. It was far less touristy and hardly crowded. The beach here is rather long, so there is a lot of space for people to spread out. You can still feel as though you're on a private beach if you wander far enough. The water here was also much cleaner and crystal blue. Beautiful!

Karon Beach is much quieter than busy Patong Beach. The town is building and has everything you need - travel into Patong is only about $6 - $10 AUD depending on your tuk tuk driver! Negotiate hard!!

As always the Thai people are always smiling and welcome you to their beautiful country.

The beach bar at Karon Beach has a fantastic pad thai at cheap beach prices! Don't go near the grumpy monkey!

If you get some time hire a zip zip (scooter) and take the journey up to the giant buddha. A great ride and a fantastic view when you get there.

There are some fantastic resorts in the area. Shop around for best prices.

A really great holiday with lots to explore
