Like Patong Beach or Karon Beach, Kata Beach offers you shopping, dining, sightseeing, snorkeling, and diving opportunities. If you want to avoid the more excessive entertainment life and persistent vendors, Kata is the place to go. The value for money is great too!

Elephant trekking, mini golf, and shopping at some of the island’s larger shopping malls are also available. And should you prefer to visit the sizzling nightlife in neighboring Patong, the trip takes only 15 minutes!
