Kata Beach is located on the west coast of southern Phuket, south of Karon Beach. Kata Beach, Karon Beach and Patong Beach, are known as the three major beaches of Phuket. It has two beautiful bays and is shaped like the letter W. For this reason, it is divided into two beaches, known by locals as "Kata Yai Beach" and "Kata Noi Beach". In terms of scale, Kata Beach is much smaller than Patong Beach and Karon Beach. Although the beach is not very long, the sand is soft, the water is clear, and the waves are gentle. It is very suitable for swimming and diving, and attracts many tourists who like tranquility to come here and relax.

Kata Beach is one of the best and the most visited beaches in Phuket island. It is located on the west coast of Phuket. The sea is turquoise blue here and the sand is white and from the beach you can see an iconic island standing in the middle of the ocean, making excellent sunset photos.
Kata is less crowded than Patong Beach (which is the most popular beach in Phuket) and still offers a great choice of restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and hotels. It has a nice little street with vendors on the weekend selling beach clothing, Thailand spa and beauty products, t shirts as well as freshly made smoothies, pad Thai and grilled chicken or fish. There is a wave house /bar in the south end to practice surfing. Lots of small shops to buy Thailand massage balms and oils. On the beach itself has massage huts , parasailing, banana boat and jet ski rentals.
I spent there 5 days, staying at the Sugar Palm Grand Hillside hotel and I didn’t want to leave that place. It was such an amazing holiday in Kata Beach. And if you are traveling to Thailand I highly recommend to spend some days in Kata beach!
