Kata Beach Phuket is one of southern Thailand's most beautiful beaches, the quintessential golden sandy beach enclosed by 2 wooded headlands. Kata Beach is predominantly fronted by a road in front of the Club Med one of the first resorts to spot the fine location over 25 years ago. Kata Beach has played host to many holiday makers over the years and no less now as the range and quality of Kata Hotels and resorts has improved no end.
On the southern end of Kata Beach you have the Kata beach Resort and Mom Tri's Boathouse, 2 class resorts with stunning beachfront locations. Just behind these lies the Kata Village where there are a myriad of restaurants, bars and shops.
The view from Kata Beach takes in Koh Pu an island a tantalizingly close 500 meters from the headland. It is however advisable to swim out there as the mid tide currents sweep past and can send you south and off into oblivion! Sightseeing, snorkeling and diving tours of Koh Pu add to your visit to Kata Beach. Just pick up a friendly longtail boatman down on the beach and the job is done.
Kata Beach Much like the Karon Beach, Kata Beach is a quiet and relaxing alternative to the commercial chaos of Phutek Island's Patong Beach. Kata is partitioned into the Kata Yai and the Kata Noi. While Kata Yai offers a long stretch of white sand with palm trees and some restaurants and resorts, the Kata Noi is smaller but more private and calm.
