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.

Karon Beach Reviews
We were lucky to have this as our local beach for 8 days whilst in Thailand. Whilst having alot of people on the beach it was very quiet and safe more »
This beach is much quieter and better than neighbouring Patong beach.Sand was lovely and water clear compared to patong beach, less pollution.Best beach in Thailand and great for families. more »
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.
