Tambon Karon, Amphoe Mueang, Phuket
Category : Beaches & Bay
Attraction Details :
Another beach which is famous among Thai and foreign tourists is Karon beach. It is known as the longest beach-line in Phuket. The beach has fine white delicate sand with astonishing view of
the beach along with the arranged common ironwoods and Asian sugar palms. The scenery looks like
an impressive painting. However, this beach encounters quite strong sea breeze therefore it is rather not popular for swimming. On the contrary, it is well-known as a place where you can lie down and
get sun-tanned skin especially among the foreigners. Walking along the beach to enjoy the sea view is
also in trend. Not far from Karon beach, tourists can cross to see and visit other beaches nearby.
It will take only few minutes to go such as to Kata island and to Kata Noi island.
There are numerous facilities for tourists such as accommodations, restaurants, shopping centers.
There are also hotels from small tourist class hotels to big luxurious hotels including plenty of modern shopping centers and clean-food, good-taste restaurants, spas and many tourist attractions recommended after the sunset. The transportation is also very convenient since there are pick-up spots and taxi service provided for tourists.
How to get there :
To travel to Karon beach, you can drive along either from both main roads. The first route is
from Kata beach, just drive directly along on the main road then after around 5 minutes, you will reach
the island, which lies in the north of Kata beach, with only a small hill in between. However, if you
would like to go to the middle of Karon beach and Karon village, you can travel from Pathong beach which takes around 20 minutes to reach Karon beach.
