The third longest beach on Phuket, and playing host to a wealth of activity, Karon Beach holidays are not only for the beach bums and tan enthusiasts, but for just about any type of holidaymaker there is, whether you see yourself playing the culture vulture amid the Karon Temple Market or the avid historian, perusing the Big Bhudda, a majestic statue not far away.
Although one of Thailand’s finest coastlines will be the main draw during your holidays to Karon Beach, there’s an extensive range of attractions if you find yourself seeking just a little more from the sun-splashed sands. While the market will provide you with fantastic local foods, why not find out how to make some yourself with Phuket Thai Cooking classes? As well as being a relaxingly rewarding experience, you may just find yourself picking up a tip or two when it comes to making these wonderfully colourful foods.
It’s not just the food where you’ll find vibrancy, with an array of water sports and several diving opportunities, including those found at Kata Beach, you’ll be subject to the varicoloured coral life which lurks below the blue waters. Exotic fish and interesting crustaceans will fill your visions down here, but after returning to the surface you can polish off the evenings during your holidays in Karon Beach with a crisply shaken cocktail at Walkabout Sports Bar or indulge in the several spas which litter the area.
