Kata Beach looking good this low season
We went down to check out Kata Beach today to see how the area is looking this low season. The beach was looking pretty good, with only a few spots of rubbish that had accumulated by the end of the day. Kata Beach is definitely one of Phuket’s better beaches. You can swim, sunbathe and surf without any troubles.
One point worth mentioning is that the waves are big and there are rip tides at Kata Beach at the moment, so although you can swim, it’s best to not go out too far. There were signs up today around the beach warning people not to swim, but nobody was really paying them any attention.
The surf at Kata Beach was really good today, with a lot of large, rolling waves to get into. The best time to visit Kata Beach is late afternoon when the weather isn’t so hot and the beach is less crowded. It’s really rather beautiful – a million miles away from Patong Beach and perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
