Kata Noi Beach

Phuket Beaches - South


An idyllic setting, as a wide beach at the southern end offers snorkelling opportunities. The Katathani Resort is the hotel that dominates it. Both Kata Yai and Kata Noi are suitable for swimming because the sands and the sea are fresh and clean.

In the beginning of December 2006, Thailand launched the first of 22 tsunami-detection buoys to be positioned around the Indian Ocean as part of a regional warning system against giant waves caused by earthquakes under the sea. The satellite-linked deep-sea buoy will float 1,000km (620mi) offshore, roughly midway between Thailand and Sri Lanka.
