Surin beach

The smallest of Phuket’s three main tourist beaches, Kata is different in appearance and style from Karon or Patong.

The beach itself is broad and curving, and structures bordering it are low–rise. The waters are perfect for swimming, and at the north end is a coral reef with many varieties of coral and fish, which stretches out toward Poo Island, about 0.5km off shore. Facilities for every price range include restaurants, bars and clubs. There is a regular bus service to and from Phuket town during daytime.
