Kata Noi Beach is a small yet beautiful beach that’s considered as one of Phuket’s gems. Despite its small size, it’s quite popular to tourist because of its crystal clear waters, white sand, and luscious green trees on the background.
Located at the tip of Phuket’s west coast, Kata Noi is considered by many as one of the best beaches in the island. The place is unassuming – its main feature is its fine, white sand and breathtaking sceneries – but it’s where luxurious hotels and restaurants are located. During the day, you can embark on some water adventures such as kayaking, snorkelling, and diving. Surfing is also a favourite activity here especially from May to October. As you settle through the night, you can visit one of Kata Noi’s sunset bars and revel at the majesty of golden Thai sunsets.
Kata Noi is located in the west coast of Phuket, 10 kilometres away from the town centre.
