Karon Beach is the second largest beach on Phuket. Located on the west coast of Phuket, sandwiched between Kata and Patong beaches, Karon Beach offers excellent sunset views. However, unlike the crowded Patong Beach, Karon Beach is quiet and peaceful. The long stretch of white sand has plenty of beach umbrellas for hire.

The beach area has seen little or no development. Most of the resort complexes are situated across the road, away from the beach. Restaurants, bars and other miscellaneous establishments are at either ends of the beach.
