About Kata Beach in Phuket

Home to the King’s Cup Regatta in December, Kata Beach is usually fairly crowded throughout the year. Surfers take advantage of the low season due to the strong waves found here from May to October. Kata Beach is very attractive and it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular destination. There are some great hotels here and the restaurant and bar scene is quite good, and nightlife continues to grow.

Kata Beach Activities

Aside from watersports, popular activities at Kata Beach include soccer and volleyball. Beachgoers also, of course, frequent the beach bars that offer drinks, music, and nice sunset views. It is also common for people to exercise on the beach, especially in the morning or after sundown.

Surfing in Kata Beach

Surfing is probably the top watersport in Kata Beach. The good swells here attract a lot of surfers from around Phuket during the high season. The central and northern areas are the most popular, but surfing is also possible further south, where you’ll find an opportunity to take beginners’ lessons if you’d like.

Other Watersports in Kata Beach

The northern end of Kata Beach offers the best opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving. Kayaks can be taken all around the area and may be rented for exploration of nearby islands. It’s also possible to hire equipment for windsurfing. Parasailing is fairly common as well.

Restaurants at Kata Beach

Thai, seafood, and some global selections are the most popular foods in Kata Beach. You’ll find these dishes served at the restaurants here, but there are also many food stalls at either end of the beach road. Additionally, some of the beach vendors here sell food, so keep a lookout when you’re getting hungry.

Kata Beach Amenities

Facilities at Kata Beach are fairly standard for the area. Sunbeds are spread throughout the beach and public toilets are available, unlike at some less popular beaches.

You can get a Thai massage right on the beach front and there are also some shady areas for lounging.
