Karon beach is a decent public beach. Not all parts are clean, there are someone dirty spots, but in general it is ok. Not the nicest beach we have seen in Thailand though...

Found the beach to be a lot more relaxing and less paranoid of our belongings to be stolen as it wasn't as packed as eg. Patong beach! Even the people selling things got the point when you would say no instead of haggling you! Have gone to this beach more than any other!!

It was fascinating. White sandy beach with clear steady deepen sea. Every thing is like a mile away. I actually prefer this beach to patong beach

Karon Beach is our favorite in Phuket, quite away from the hassle of Patong and the same time not away from everything as Kamala...

Walked along the beach last night... I was genuinely surprised at the amount of rubbish (tourists to blame). I walked in cigarette butts, kicked bottles of beer that had been buried, and basically tried to dodge the crap people had left behind. It's a shame because I think it could be a lovely beach!

No chairs, so it was too difficult for my father in law to join us as he has hip issues. Not bothered by obnoxious beach vendors. Approached a few times, but simple "no thank you" sent them on their way. Parasailing... More

I visited this beach on November 2016. Water was nice and warm. But you have to be very careful when you swim there. There are many rip currents, that pull you in to the ocean and you can't get back to the beach. If you are careful, then it is a nice beach where to swim and have fun with... More
