Kata Noi Beach is known for its brilliant white sands and transparent aquamarine waters, as well as its relatively calm atmosphere, especially compared to other popular beaches like party-centric Patong (located just north). Backed by the fancy (and sprawling) Kata Thani Phuket Beach Resort, the beach is described by recent visitors as "family friendly."
This spot along the southwest coast of Phuket is popular among travelers for its kid-friendly atmosphere and nearby facilities, including a handful of restaurants and shops and a 7-Eleven, which is useful for picking up drinks and snacks.
The best way to reach this beach, which is a little more than 10 miles southwest of Phuket Town, is by a taxi, tuk-tuk or motorcycle. The beach is free to visit and accessible 24/7, though swimming after dark is never recommended.
