There's so much to do that you'll want to plan your holiday in advance, and pick out the activities you want to try.
Kata Beach holidays are popular with everyone, from families with young children to surfers who travel the world in search of the best swells. On top of this, you're in a town with some of the best restaurants in Phuket – serving anything from traditional Thai to gourmet cuisine.
Holidays to Kata Beach undeniably revolve around its namesake – the long stretch of sand and warm, turquoise sea. Spreading out for just over a kilometre, Kata Beach has everything you could ask for: beautiful surroundings, great facilities, fun activities and nearby restaurants.
Come the low season, surfers flock to experience this beach's impressive waves, while in the high season, the waters are beautifully calm, making them perfect for divers, snorkellers and swimming. If you're in the town in December, you'll be able to spot yachts arriving in the bay for the start of the prestigious King's Cup Regatta, which is a spectacle not to be missed.
The beach is lined with restaurants serving lots of different types of food, and there are umbrellas and sun-loungers to rent too.
