Karon Noi Beach

Phuket Beaches - West


This beach contains a single hotel, Le Meridien Phuket. Nevertheless, like all beaches in Thailand, this one is public too.

On April 10, 1689, the French general Desfarges led an expedition to re-capture the island of Phuket in an attempt to restore some sort of French control in Siam. The occupation of the island led nowhere, and Desfarges returned to Pondicherry in January 1690.
