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.

  • Beautiful beach facing the Andaman Sea, with many resorts lining the shore. The beach is large enough that it doesn't feel crowded. Always be respectful and mindful of the sea as there are sometimes large waves and rip tides that may pull you out to sea.
  • Enjoyed the beach and the waves. The rocks at the south end makes this beach unique. The long stretchy of sand made it ideal for a morning run. This place can be crowded, but definitely enough space for everyone - families, couples, friends, or even by yourself. Enjoy!
