Karon is by far the best beach for families in Phuket compared to the busy Patong Beach! Clean beach, clean sea! The beach is not too busy yet not too quiet either as water sports are going on nearby. Could easily spend hours and hours here!

Karon Beach is a lovely clean beach, but be careful when entering into the sea, as the waves are very strong & can knock you off your feet. Not suitable for children to play in on their own. Beach beds & umbrellas cost 200 Bht to rent for the day.

Very nice and relatively clean beach with lots of entertainment for kids and adults: beach volleyball, jet ski and parasailing. The only problem it is quite expensive. 5 minutes of parasailing for two is 2500 baht

We stayed at the northern part of the beach (north of Karon Park and south of Novotel) which is the best location in my opinion. + Nice sand + This part of the beach is not too crowded + Possibilities to rent sunloungers and parasols + cheap beach restaurants at the road

Good beach with white sand and incredibly warm water. Sun beds cost 200 baht per umbrella (2 sun beds) which is a bit pricey. There are toilets nearby for a cost of 20 baht. A nice beach.

A clean beach with clean waters. Very little in terms of sellers on the beach. We were not hassled once. Fun waves. Great if you like to walk along the waters edge as the beach is quite long. Plenty of bars, restaurants and shops opposite the beach.

Been here for the past two nights and what's pretty evident is that the place is clean, litter wise but the are some smells that belong in a sewer. The vendors and shops all sell pretty much the same thing so you can try to bargain but all stick to the same lowered price. Like they all got together and... More

Lovely beach with golden sand. Not too crowded and you can do all the water sports there. Swimming is great in the clear water although it can be quite rough at times but my children were able to swim in it who are not confident swimmers but loved the trill of the waves!!!!

Our stay at Thavorn Palm was excellent! Our experience was only made better by the service of Jack mandarin. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay that much enjoyable.
