A bit crowded during the Chinese New Year, great for families and very beautiful at sunset. Many restaurants around and a place to learn surfing right in front

Kata Noi beach is a gorgeous quiet beach in the southern part of Phuket. It’s in front of the Katathani Resort Hotel but it’s a public beach. Only 850 km long and a lovely place to sit and watch the sunset.

Kata Noi is a better beach and is only 10 minutes walk from Kata Beach itself.
