It's hard to surf here and it was pretty rough in June. It also had a lot of washed up rubbish along it that would be better if the locals focussed on removing the debris and not allowing it to wash back into the ocean

Karon Beach is another best beaches on the western coastline of Phuket island. The place is good for sunbathing and water sports. The Massage parlour opposite the beaches are a must go.

We went during low season. High tide. Rent a pair of beach chairs. Enjoyed the view. Lovely beach with sports activities, parasailing, jet ski, on beach massage, as well as drink stall

Nothing spectacular about this 3km long beach. You may get some beds for rent. Water is clean. Good for a swim if you don't want a super crowded beach.

Really sad to walk along this rubbish filled beach. I'm not sure where it comes from but the planet can not sustain people tipping there landfill into the ocean. Sand is golden colour, decent surf to swim in but we didn't swim in it properly...More

This was our first experience with Thailand beach. It was just perfect! The water was a beautiful blue/green and very clean/clear. I appreciated the little bit more of a quieter atmosphere than Patong Beach.
