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.

Phuket was formerly referred to as "Thalang," derived from the old Malay "Telong" which means "Cape". The northern district of the province, which was the location of the old capital, still uses this name.
