Kata Beach Activities

What to Do in Kata Beach

One of the most popular beaches in Phuket, Kata has a lot going for it with swaying palms, white sands and clear water.

Inland, you’ll discover a vibrant nightlife, good shopping and many choices of activities, including spa treatments, Thai cooking classes and more.

There are also plenty of water activities available at Kata Beach: snorkelling at both ends of the beach is great; kayaking up to Koh Pu (Crab Island) is possible (take a bottle of water and a few sweet snacks along just in case); noisy and polluting jet-skis; parasailing; and even diving on the reef located between the beach and Crab Island. In low season, surfing is a great way to enjoy the thrills and spills of the sea at Kata's southern end and you'll also come across a surf simulator at Surf House near the middle of the beach.

All Activities in Kata Beach

Kayaking and longtail boats

Kayaking is available in Kata Noi Beach for around 200 baht an hour. If you prefer a quiet spot, head south towards Nui Beach where the coastline is relatively untouched. You can hire a local boat and go snorkelling as there are excellent reefs at the southern end of Kata Beach and also by Poo Island, just offshore. Longtail boats can also be rented for around 600 baht per hour, depending on the number of passengers and your negotiating skills.

Spa and Thai massage in Kata Beach

Give yourself and your loved ones something special during your holiday by booking a spa treatment.
