My girlfriend is a big beach fan and I'm not too fussed. (Sand everywhere afterwards always annoys me). Anyway, we went here instead of Karon or the patong and it was so much nicer. A smaller beach with plenty of cheap (100baht) lounges to hire....More

Kata Noi beach is one of my favourites in the whole of Phuket due to the fact it is not that well known. There is a tidy swell here so be careful if you're not that good a swimmer even though there are lifeguards.

This is a nice quiet beach, and much less crowded than Kata beach. Fewer parasails and fewer jet skis. There are two issues to be aware of. One, if you swim, there are mildly stinging jellies and we were stung a lot, though we do...More

Yes agree with other reply. Taxi tuk tuk is the best bet. Negotiate a fair price. 500baht is standard fare. Beautiful beach, worth the visit, but not to sure during monsoon season.
