This lovely 2-mile sand beach, backed by salt ponds and dunes, provides protected anchorage in 6 - 10 metres on a sandy bottom along its entire length.
For easy access to shore facilities, position (A) directly off Karon Circle is most convenient. (see chart below)
Karon Beach has experienced significant development, with several major high rise hotels easily recognised from far offshore. Phuket Town is about 30 minutes away by tuk tuk.
