Karon Beach features the 3rd-longest beach on Phuket Island. Located on the west coast, between Patong to the north and Kata to the south, Karon Beach is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Phuket. The beach itself has excellent snorkelling (and even diving) spots at its southern end and is wide enough for beachgoers to never feel crowded.

Karon features 3 main areas, each with their own assets: Karon Centre is a lively spot where you can find a good choice of dining, shopping and nightlife, as well as a beautiful Buddhist temple hosting a bi-weekly market. Karon Beach Road is ideal for evening strolls and is home to several large resorts, as well as restaurants and shops. The third main area of Karon is centred around Luang Poh Chuan Road, towards the southern end of the beach, which hosts excellent restaurants and the most raucous nightlife in Karon.
