Karon Beach

Phuket Beaches - West


One of Phuket's loveliest beaches, but unfortunately, one of its most treacherous during the monsoon season. Morning glories cover a sandy ridge separating the beach from the back areas, giving some privacy and shelter from the noise of passing cars. Karon Villa is found on the northern end of the bay. The sands are fine and clean.

The Burmese attacked Phuket in 1785. Captain Francis Light, a British East India Company captain passing by the island, sent word to the local administration that he had observed Burmese forces preparing to attack.
