“Tranquil but Untidy”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

A quite beach ideal for strolling along the sand on the edge of wave after meals. Affordable eateries and drink shops are nearby if you feel like having a quick and cheap meals.Apart from trashes and weeds, it's still a good and tranquil beach.

“Trash all over the beach! Disgusting”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I am sad to report that the beaches in Kata and Karon are filled with trash! It lines the high tide line, trash even hit me while I was in the ocean! Somehow I got black tar on my foot between the ocean and my towel on the beach. After that, I could not bring myself to go in again.

Skip Kata and Karon!

“Lots of rubbish on the beach”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Due to currents and tides, rubbish washes up on the beaches. Although locals try to do a beach cleanup, i still didnt feel comfortable walking barefoot here.
