The beautiful beach of Kata Yai is located in a curved bay limited by a rocky promontory. It extends over 2km of white sandy beach lined with a few restaurants. This is a wonderful beach for families, and it provides the possibility to swim all-year-round. Yet, pay attention to the flags during low season, from May to October, as the currents are sometimes heavy on Phuket’s West coast at this time of the year.
At the north end of the bay you will see the island of Koh Poo that has a beautiful coral reef easily accessible.
The Club Med, established since 1985, is located in the center of the main beach and hopefully is an obstacle to urbanization. Kata town center offers a wide selection of restaurants, bars and shops of all kind, and the nightlife is quieter than some others area of Phuket such as Patong.
Located just off the beach of Kata Yai and hidden by the Katathani Hotel, Kata Noi beach is nestled between the slopes of mountains covered by a lush jungle.
The village of Kata Noi offers some restaurants, tailors, bars and various shops. In the evening a joyful and tranquil nightlife takes place.
If you are in Kata, do not miss Kata viewpoint which is probably the most beautiful of Phuket. Located between Kata and Nai Harn along the coastal road, this viewpoint offers spectacular views of three of the most beautiful bays of Phuket, Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beach.
