Karon beach is lovely. Very happy to have picked this area to stay over the others. Appeared to me to be more cleaner but do check cleanliness of toilets before choosing your restaurant!!! X

Karon beach is a great place. Close enough to visit patong but far enough away for some peace and quiet! Good street markets, nice restaurants and a beautiful long beach. Sun beds are 200 baht for 2 beds plus an umbrella. Sea is beautiful and lots of activities offered along the beach. Good nightlife but all closes pretty early, around 10-10:30pm.

This beach is ever so clean. The sand makes a bizarre squeaking noise underfoot which is quite a delight to hear. There are plenty of bars and restaurants just on the other side of the road. I am unsure if there are umbrellas etc to hire as we visited near sundown each day. The heat is quite intense!

Karon Beach was very beautiful, but lacks shade other than the 100 baht chairs/umbrellas. The day we were there a massive rain storm came and lasted for an hour before we packed up and left. Keep in mind that we are from Seattle and very use to rain...and out waiting it. There were taxi's easily available at the stand down the main street. We had several hours here before the rain came in and loved it. There were A LOT of beach sellers around, but they were easily put off by a polite "no thank you." This is a vast sandy beach with beautiful green water. This beach was suggested to us by the tour desk of our hotel in Patong...she said it was one of the cleaner large beaches around, and I would agree. There was a pretty strong undercurrent that made me nervous for the little kids playing away from their parents, but everyone seemed to be having fun. I would not have let my 7 year old play alone in this water. This beach was much nicer than Patong Beach, but Patong was a better place to stay for us-more shops, markets, restaurants etc. We did not once go in the water at Patong solely based on what it looked like. And we jumped right into Karon Beach's water. It cost us 300 Baht to take a taxi from Patong to Karon...and as a side note that taxi turned out to be a karaoke taxi...complete with microphone, flip down video screen, disco light and tamborine... it felt like Cash Cab and made the ride feel like it was not far at all.
