Kata Beach

Kata Beach is one of the most famous and Popular Sandy beaches in Phuket – Thailand. Located in Between Kata Noi and Karon Beach. The beach is around one Hour Drive from Phuket international Airport, and just 15 minutes Drive from Patong Beach. Kata Beach is Busy but not as crowded as Patong Beach.

Same as the Other Beaches in Phuket, During the High Season which is from November to April, The Sea water is Calm and crystal Clear. However, During the Low Season which is between May and October, There are some High waves that may be present which makes the Swimming Experience not as good as during the High Season. Tourists must Observe the Life guards’ Flags especially during the Low Season. If the flag is red, It is not recommended to go for a swim for safety reasons.
