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.

화창한날씨였어요 사진찍기 좋았지만,..개가 자유스럽게 싸고 다녀서 똥폭탄이 좀있었지요 뷰는 좋았고 가끔 해파리 출연이요 파란색 빛나는 해파리~~물리면 아프데요 more »Nice but,.. The dog was a little bit of a bomb, but the view was good and sometimes the jellyfish appeared and the blue glowing jellyfish ~ ~ Bites is sick.
So I have been here twice and spent my whole holiday here. I love this beach. It is a very long beach and the water, depth and sand is kind of different on every part. When you are facing the sea, I love the left most corner the most. You can try snorkelling around there..might catch a few fishes swimming below. There are.massage stalls, fresh fruit vendors all.over the beach. Basically you get everything related to chilling on a beach here. Enjoy!
Great beach if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Beautiful views. The water is amazing with loads of water rides available. Soak up some son or relax on one of the many covered beach recliners. Get a drink and why not a massage from one of the beach bars.
