Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bang Tao Beach and Karon View Point. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Big Buddha Phuket and Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong). Change things up with these side-trips from Karon: Phuket 3D Museum (in Talat Yai), Phuket Town (Kayaking & Canoeing & Holy Trinity Church in Phuket) and Wat Baan Kamala (in Kamala). There's still lots to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, cool off at Surf House Phuket - Kata Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Karon Beach, and get great views at Promthep Cape.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Karon tour itinerary website.

The vast stretches of beach in Mai Khao, once a nesting area for the giant leatherback turtle, are home to various aquatic and relaxation activities.

Take a break from Mai Khao with a short trip to Ao Po Pier in Pa Khlok, about 34 minutes away. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 19th (Wed) at Splash Jungle Waterpark. There's still lots to do: stroll through The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GRP), buy something for everyone on your list at Turtle Village Shops & Cuisine, head off the coast to Koh Yao Yai, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
