Among the most beautiful beaches in Thailand is Kata beach. This paradise is a kilometer and a half long—not that big when you think about it, but big enough for it to be memorable to many people.
The beach has everything: the quintessential golden sand, blue water, and clear skies punctuated by the occasional palm tree.
One of the things that make Kata is a favorite among travelers is the many activities to enjoy there.
There is a range of water sports like snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving, and all these for people of different skill levels. You can also hike to Karon viewpoint, or just hang out at the shore and bask in the sunshine. If you are looking for things to do on Kata beach, we have a few suggestions!
In Kata, you have the option to rent sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach. These facilities are spaced out evenly along the stretch of the beach, so there is definitely enough for the number of beachgoers. If you want to have your own shade for the entire trip, you can purchase small umbrellas for a few hundred baht in local shops. Some places also sell mats for you to lounge on. Near the top of the beach, there are plenty of palm trees, which shelter street vendors selling fruits, chicken, ice cream, and other treats perfect for sunny days. If you want to sink further into relaxation, you can pop into one of the massage parlors on the shore.
There are dozens of places serving seafood, as well as Thai and international cuisine. There are hawker stalls at the endpoints of the beach as well, where you can find good eats for less. Popular places include the Food Market Kata, which is a good place to get fresh seafood. Visitors rave about their spicy pad thai and tom yung soup. For a more midscale experience, try The Dining Room at Pacific Club. Their peaceful vibes and excellent service keep guests coming back for more, and their prices are competitive compared to similar restaurants. Their noodles and dim sum are crowd favorites.
Kata Beach is a haven for adventurous types who enjoy athletic activities. Parasailing and kayaking abound, and a small island at the northern end of the beach is a good place for snorkelling. Scuba divers are also active in the northern part of the beach. Scuba diving is best during high season, when the water is calm. Towards the south is where you find surfers. This is the best place to catch some waves, since there are beautiful breaks in this area. Surfboard rental and classes are available, and there are lessons specifically geared for beginners. If you have children, you don’t need to worry; there are smaller waves towards the shore, which is more manageable for kids. There are boogie boards for rent as well, which can provide hours of entertainment for the young and the young at heart.
Whether you’re a newbie to Kata or are a happy veteran, you’ll need to go back several times to make the most of what this beach town has to offer. There are just so many options for food and recreation that every trip will surely be unique. If you are looking for a place to stay in Kata Beach, book a vacation at The Galleri by Katathani!
