Karon Beach


 
Karon Beach
 
 
The second largest of Phuket’s tourist beaches. Large resort complexes line the road behind of the shoreline, but the long, broad beach itself has no development. The sand is very white, and squeaks audibly when walked upon. The southern point has a fine coral reef stretching toward Kata and Bu Island.
 
Restaurants, bars, tour companies and other non-hotel businesses are at the north end, near the traffic circle, and at the south end, on the little road connecting the backroad with the beach road. The narrow road between Kata and Karon has a number of small businesses as well as the Dino Park Mini Golf facillity. Karon is the most up-scale of Phuket’s beaches. There is a regular daytime bus service to and from Phuket Town.
 
You'll find most of the restaurants in the village of Karon which now also features a string of mainly top-end resorts. Luckily, most are tasteful and set far enough back from the sand to blend into the background hills. During the monsoon season, the surf is too rough for swimming here, so you'll have to head to Kata for that as well.
