At Kata Beach, many hotels and resorts line the roads back from the beachfront, where all tastes and budgets catered for. Additionally, there are also some more upmarket absolute beachfront resorts on the southern section of beach, plus it is smaller than some of the other Phuket beaches and is not crowded with rows of sun loungers and umbrellas. Kata Beach also offers some lovely views of small near-shore islands.

Kata Beach boasts tropical palms, white sands, calm, azure waters and general pictures of serenity. It’s far quieter than some of the really big resort beaches and is best for simply relaxing and enjoying some peace and quiet.

Kata village is an international affair with restaurants offering cuisines from around the globe. A popular family spot is Dino Park, with Jurassic-themed dining and mini-golf course set among roaring beasts and a billowing volcano. Nightlife is low-key, ranging from small bars to clubs with live bands.

Kata is about 15 or 20 minutes drive from Patong and up to 40 minutes from Phuket Town, if the traffic is busy. It can take up to an hour to get to the airport in the north, if you travel in the early evening traffic.
