Karon lies just south of Patong and consists of 3 towns, each with their own unique beach and atmosphere. The neighborhood’s main attractions can be found along Patak Road East, which runs from Wat Suwan Khiri Khet (Karon Temple) to the beach road. Here there are plenty of restaurants and bars as well as guesthouses, convenience stores and massage shops. Along the beach, Aroona Karon complex is another area with several bars, cafes, eateries and a few shops. On the southern end, Karon Beach borders Kata and is home to a sports stadium, which hosts many assorted games as well as Karon Police Station. Karon beach enjoys a long stretch of golden coastline on the island, extending to an impressive five kilometres. The beach is a wonderful place for a walk and swimming is fine in the high season months between December and April. A bit further down south lies Kata beach, one of Phuket’s highlights, a stunningly beautiful stretch of white, sandy shore that attracts crowds any time of the year. Its smaller sister beach town of Kata Noi still remains somewhat of a secret to many tourists but is much loved by those who know it. Both Kata and Kata Noi offer their own unique charm with Kata Beach boasting bars, restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, while Kata Noi is the place to go for peace and tranquillity. Kata Beach has a large residential area with both locals and expats choosing to make the town their preferred place of residence. As such, it has a small town feeling to it. You’ll find all conveniences here to make for a relaxing holiday, whether you’re after the beach life, fun nights out or dining in quality restaurants.
