About Karon Beach

Located on the west coast between Patong to the north and Kata to the south, Karon Beach is the third-longest beach and the most popular holiday destination on Phuket Island. It has excellent snorkeling and diving spots at its southern end and is uncrowded too. Apart from a good choice of dining, shopping, and entertaining nightlife, it also has a beautiful Buddhist temple to offer.
