KARON BEACH PHUKET THAILAND
Karon, featuring an incredibly long stretch of squeaky white sand, is less hectic than Patong but it still offers a full range of facilities, dining and activities. While it’s a fast-growing area, Karon is nicely spread out and rarely feels crowded.
At 3km, Karon is one of Phuket’s longest beaches. Although there are a few large resorts and hotels, they are spread out and the area feels very relaxed. As in Patong, the hotels are separated from the beach by a road. However, unlike Patong, the beach is always fairly quiet. The beach itself is quite exposed, with little or no natural shade. The sand is so fine and powdery that it squeaks when you walk on it.
Karon Beach is the second largest of Phuket’s tourist beaches, some 20 kilometers from Phuket old town. Large resort complexes line the road behind of the shoreline, but the long. The sand is very white, and squeaks audibly when walked upon. The southern point has a fine coral reef stretching toward Kata and Boo Island.
Fine accommodations, Restaurants, bars, tour companies and other non-hotel businesses are at the north end, near the traffic circle, and at the south end, on the little road connecting the back road with the beach road. The narrow road between Kata and Karon has a number of small businesses. Karon is arguably the most up-scale of Phuket’s beaches. There is a regular daytime bus service to and from Phuket Town and different places in Phuket area.
Karon offers visitors a nice long quiet stretch of sand, with plenty of beach umbrellas available for rent. Facing west, it gives a beautiful view of the sunset.
