Kata Noi Beach

Just south of Kata Beach is Kata Noi Beach (Kata small beach). It is smaller and less developed than Kata Beach. Soft, golden sand slopes into the inviting sea making a great bathing beach.

We also give this beach high marks as a snorkeling location. The headland at the south end of the beach has a lot of corals and plenty of beautiful fish. The corals here survived the tsunami thanks to the protection of the headland rocks.

There are sun loungers lined along most of the beach. They cost 100 baht each. It is a popular beach but quieter than its neighbours Kata Beach, Karon Beach and Patong. There are a few water-sport activities such as jet-skis and banana boats but mostly these stay at the busier beaches.

The major hotel here is the Kata Thani which covers the northern half of the beach. You can access the beach at the south end.

At the top of the hill at the entrance to the beach is Mom Tri's Kitchen - a highly regarded restaurant with views over the beach.

During the rainy season, this is one of the more dangerous beaches. That does not deter the surfers who favour this beach and Kata as Phuket's favourite surfing locations.

How to Get There

Go to the south end of Kata, turn right and go straight up the hill. This is a dead end road leading only to Kata Beach.
