Kata Travel Information Guide

Towards the southern end of Phuket is Kata Beach, which is divided into Kata Yai and Kata Noi. Both beaches offer stunning scenery and a relaxed atmosphere, making it an all round favorite.

Kata Yai

This is the larger of the two beaches. The bay is very picturesque with Koh Pu (Pu Island) at the northern end. Half of the beach is bordered by a road, while the southern half has a few resorts right on the beach. Club Med occupies a large portion of the land behind the beach road towards the northern end of the beach, keeping that end of the beach fairly quiet.

Due to its fairly small size, Kata has a cozy feel about it and is great for families. There are quite a few shops, restaurants and bars around Kata Center and between Kata Yai and Kata Noi. Kata is perhaps the best compromise between the hectic pace of Patong and some of the quieter beaches on Phuket.

Kata Noi

Kata Noi only has a few hotels and is dominated by the Kata Thani Hotel. The beach is lovely and there has only been a little development.

There are plenty of water sports to be enjoyed at Kata. The bay is excellent for sailing and plays host to the annual King's Cup Regatta every December.

Kata Yai and Kata Noi are quite popular with surfers during the rainy season. You can rent all kinds of boards on the beach. It is also one of the best beaches on the island for snorkeling. The area to the South of Kata Noi beach has some decent coral that is worth exploring.

There is a good variety of restaurants in Kata, especially around Kata Center. Restaurants serving Thai, Italian, Scandinavian and of course seafood can all be found here. Restaurants right on the beach can also be found at the southern end of Kata Yai. For a real culinary treat, try one of the world class resort dining venues.

In Kata you will also have easy access to a range of day and resort spas and retreats, offering everything from rejuvenating facials and body massages, to body wraps and scrubs, yoga and detox.

Accommodation is plentiful in Kata. You can find inexpensive guest houses, bungalow resorts as well as 5 star hotels and resorts.
