Kata Beach Reviews
Чисто, ровное дно. Людей не очень много. Но всегда дежурят копы. Не курите на пляже. Можно покурить в Кафе, выдают пепельницы. more »A clear, flat bottom. There are not many people. But there are always cops on duty. Don't smoke on the beach. You can smoke in the Cafe, give out ashtrays.
What a beautiful beach clear warm water with plenty of small friendly open fronted cafes to get a cold drink or beautiful smoothie. The vendors on the beach will try to sell you sunglasses etc but if ... more »
I love a good beach and this one is very nice and safe for swimming. Just don't like that there's too many tourists. But it's a little quieter than another one nearby. If you prefer something a little quieter but still with a nice atmosphere then give this one a try.
The beach itself was top notch. It was tranquil and beautiful, definitely one of the nicer places I’ve been to in Thailand. But the locals here, polar opposite. Especially the parachute service providers, they’re straight up gangsters. I was walking along the beach and accidentally stepped over one of the ropes they use for the parachute, and the old man that was hauling it in swore at me. When I turned around to look at him, two other guys gangged up threatened to fight me, so I kept walking. One of them shouted out confirming that he will “f*ck me”... thanks, I guess? The whole ordeal was quite tense, in fact I’ll be sleeping with an open eye tonight, just in case. Do come here for the crystal blue sea, but do not come here expecting to be treated like a human being. And keep your interactions with the locals to a bare minimum, or else they will “f*ck you”, especially the parachute folks. Or better yet, just go where you’re welcomed, in this case, away from Kata Beach.
