Karon beach is a jewel as far as I'm concerned. Not too crowded and free shady places along the back edge. Few harkers of wares, three parasailing boats, a few jet skies. The water clarity was not what I expected but on calm mornings you can see your feet when you're up to your neck. We saw some beautiful sunsets... More

Quiet area away from the hub of Patong but the noise of the tuk tuks music gets a bit loud. The main shopping is ok up the street and the best conversion $ we found was up near the temple at the top of the Main Street. Was a mile better every day. Be careful where you park if you... More

Karon Beach is one of the nicest public beaches I have ever visited. It services the public and all the tourist hotels in Karon and you would be hard pressed to walk from one end to the other and back in a single attempt. Separated from the hotels and main streets of Karon by Patak Road it really is a... More

We visited this beach to get away from Patong. Much cleaner. Clearly family oriented and with several hotels along the beach front.

Sitting on the beach now and it is plenty of trash here (I don't mean the people ;-). There came I guy who stripped naked next to our small kids who started doing something under a blanket which made us move. This is not the best beach for small kids. There are plenty of restaurants and shops across the street.

I stayed at Thavorn Palm and has the Karon beach right in front of the resort. Its a pretty good walk from 1 end to the other end. Although the sand isnt the finest, but its a great place for watching sunset. There are some water sports along the beach as well, and definitely not as crowded as Patong beach.... More

A great, long, clean beach. We drove here to do water sports. We went on a banana boat but there were all sorts to choose. The waves are huge and great if your body boarding or jumping waves but difficult to swim. I would keep toddlers and small children out of the sea here, it's so rough and the drag... More
