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.

The name Phuket (of which the ph sound is an aspirated p) is apparently derived from the word bukit in Malay which means "hill", as this is what the island appears like from a distance.
