Kata Beach Attractions

What to See in Kata Beach

It is hard to separate Kata from its picture perfect white sandy beach. But there is a lot more to the place, what with colourful bars, countless restaurants and good shopping.

Another good option for a couple of hours is the viewpoint up on the hill between Kata and Rawai and then you can always visit Kata’s Buddhist Temple on Patak Road while the kids’ favourite place has to be Dino Park, right next to Marina Phuket Resort.

Dino Park Mini Golf in Phuket

Popular with both adults and kids, Dino Park is an ideal family outing destination. Because of Phuket’s high humidity and heat, it’s best to frequent the place after the heat of day has abated. The 18-hole mini-golf course has different dinosaurs at each hole and is challenging in parts but nevertheless ‘doable’ for younger players. The clever lighting and atmospheric volcano that ‘erupts’ every 30 minutes with ersatz flames and a fog-like spray is best appreciated after dusk. Read More...

Opening Hours: 10:00 – 23:00 daily
Location: Beach Road – directly between Karon and Kata Beaches next to Marina Phuket Resort

Kata Viewpoint

Karon Viewpoint (which used to be Kata viewpoint) is one of the most frequented viewpoints in Phuket. From here, it is possible to take in views of Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beaches. Located between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches, the viewpoint is busy most days of the year and is a staple of many tour itineraries.

Location: Situated on the road between Kata and Nai Harn

Plub Pla View Point

Halfway between Chalong and Kata on the hill there is a sign saying 'Hilltop Restaurant.' This is the now-closed-down Plub Pla site. There is a one-way system operating on this side road and it's a good thing as the gradient is very steep. Park at the top and peek down at both Chalong and Kata from the gardens above the restaurant. 

Wat Kittisangkaram

(Kata Temple)

Kata Temple is located on a big piece of land covering about 48 rai, surrounded by beautiful nature with mountains and some tropical forest. The temple itself was built in 1832 and was simply known as Wat Kata, after the village’s name. 80 years later it was renamed Wat Kittisankaram. The temple features a beautiful ubosot (ordination hall) housing the temple’s main statue of Lord Buddha, a karepriiy hall (or monastery pavilion), monks’ dormitories and a primary school on the same grounds. Though the temple was built a long time ago it has been looked after quite well with regular renovations. The result is the whole temple looks quite new with bright and fresh colours on most of its buildings. Wat Kata is truly a lovely local temple to pay a visit. Dressing with respect is a must.

Opening Hours: Daily
Location: On Patak Road about a kilometre from the beach.
