A delightful little bay along Phuket’s west coast, Kata Noi Beach has dreamy, soft sand with lush jungle backdrops. Despite being one of the smaller beaches in Phuket, Kata Noi Beach is many tourists’ preferred destination to relax and be adventurous. Its crystal waters often present lake-like calmness, inviting peaceful swimming and snorkeling with a heap of colorful fish and coral to explore – especially on the rocks at the southern end. The months from December to April are where water activities can be carried out without the risks of strong currents and affected visibility, while those who are more adventurous may opt to surf along with the waves during the months from May to October. Even those who are not into surfing will be left amazed by the glorious waves. It is highly advised for surfers or swimmers to be extra cautious during the high tides as Kata Noi Beach is reputed to experience huge swells during this period. It is best to not venture beyond the red flags on the sand. On occasional stormy days, waves of up to two meters challenge surfers to come out and play.
There are many fun and exciting activities catered to the needs of various types of tourists on Kata Noi. Families can enjoy banana boat rides, which are known as one of the most popular activities to do on Kata Noi Beach. Those who are into thrilling sports will be excited with parasailing and jet skiing. While those who are less adventurous can just rent a kayak and paddle through the calm waters while admiring the beauty of Kata Noi. Snorkelers will get to see the vibrant marine life among the rocks at the south end of Kata Noi Beach. Here, colorful tropical fish and coral reefs can be discovered.
