Anchorages at Kata Beach

Phuket Sailing Guide

This bay offers one of the best beaches on Phuket, with many hotels and restaurants ashore. For a passing yacht looking for a beautiful beach, with activity at a quieter pace than Patong, Kata is difficult to beat.

The southeast corner of the bay offers anchorage in 8 - 10 metres on sand.

The Club Mediterranean covers about 60 percent of the beach, from the northern headland. Outside guests are not catered for here.

On the south side is Kata Beach Resort, a 200-plus room hotel that has hosted the Phuket King's Cup Regatta since 1998. This 4-star resort, with large swimming pool and gardens, is an ideal, reasonably priced holiday resort for families.

On the road behind the hotel frontage are a number of restaurants, bars, small shops and other entertainment opportunities within easy walking distance.

Beside it is The Boathouse, a longtime favourite of the yachting community. Its popularity began when owner and designer, ML Tri Devakul, one of the King's Cup Regatta founders, gave his hotel a nautical theme. The Boathouse calls itself ‘a restaurant with a few rooms attached' and is now so popular, the food so good, that reservations are a ‘must' in high season. Entertainment is piano bar style. The wine cellar is the best on Phuket, with upwards of 250 labels. Passing yachts may call to replenish wine supplies at retail, not restaurant prices.

Diving and snorkeling around Koh Pu (Crab Island) is good. A note of caution, however: the passage between Koh Pu and the headland is not recommended without local knowledge; there is a rock awash in the channel.

You can walk to Kata Centre, with its shops, restaurants and bars, via the little road from the northeast corner of the bay. It takes about 35 minutes to Phuket Town by tuk tuk.
