Kata Beach Guide – Phuket

-
.

Phuket MapThe pleasant bay of Kata, just a few minutes south of Karon Beach, entices many with its white sands and clear waters.

Composed of 2 lovely beaches called Kata Yai (Big Kata) and Kata Noi (Small Kata) – separated from each other by a small headland. Kata Beach is a thriving resort, suitable for holiday makers who look for tranquil surroundings with a bright sun, white sand, a calm clear sea and a colourful underwater world. At the north end of Kata Beach lies a small coral reef for off-shore snorkelling.
Late in the year as the waters turn calm, Kata bay becomes populated with beautiful yachts, which arrive from all over the region to compete in December’s King’s Cup Regatta, Asia’s premier sailing event. While Club Med takes up most of the beachfront, a shaded footpath along the road fronting the resort makes for a pleasant stroll.

Continuing on through the village, walkers will find an abundance of shops to browse in, from souvenir and ready-to-wear outlets, to 7-11 and local mini-marts, to name brand fashion stores. There are also plenty of dive shops and tour operators to assist those looking to explore beyond the beach.
