    Fantastic Beach Day!
    Our day at this wonderful beach spot was pure bliss! From dawn to dusk, we soaked in the sun and surf, surrounded by the warmth of smiling faces. A perfect escape with positive vibes all around!

    Lush clear blue sky and green sea
    Loved this beach more than kata and karon beach, makmly because I didn't see a single jellyfish on this beach or in the water. We found this beach while hiring motorbikes and driving round, as such we entered the beach at the top near the motorbike parking and that was a lot of steep steps down to the beach, hopefully there is a less steep option further down the hill. Water was wonderfully clear, no snorkel mask needed to see small fish. Nice white sand, a fair few sunbeds to chill on.

    Swim with the fishes!
    Beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear water! This beach was our favourite out of the few we visited during our 3 week stay at Kata Noi! Plenty of sun beds available - we favoured the south end near the rocks for snorkelling with the fish. We had about 3 days of jellyfish causing a little problem with swimming, so just kept out of the water. My thoughts were, that they were here first - we are invading their home! This end of the beach is also a little quieter, with a great little fresh juice bar tucked up in the rocks under the shade of trees! A handful of small shacks dotted along this smaller sized beach, offer basic food & fresh fruit juices, as well as the beach massage to unwind with after a busy day of chilling! Unfortunately, a little rubbish here & there left by people who just don’t seem to care! A little more untidy by the steps, at the north end of the beach, but in comparison, less than other beaches we visited! We certainly felt this beach gave us the best overall vibe, as didn’t have the hustle & bustle of a larger beach! Kata Noi is a ‘no through’ small town so is much quieter than even Kata beach, the next beach up.

    Beautiful beach
    Beautiful beach, so much quieter and cleaner than Kata Beach. Great snorkeling at the southern end and also bar selling reasonably priced drinks. Snorkeling gear for hire. 2 Sunbeds and an umbrella 200 baht a day.

We didn’t like this beach at all. Sadly it’s very crowded when we went and there were red flags saying that jelly fish are around.. we did saw lots of jelly fish in the sand and couple of pupper fish as well. The toilet facilities were very dirty.

Kata Noi is a beautiful little stretch of beach, just over the hill from the main Kata beach. I was hoping it would be a little bit more hidden and quiet, but it seems to have developed quite quickly over the years and isn't a "best kept secret" type of place as I've seen it described other places.

But nevertheless, clear, calm water, super soft sand and some fun entry level snorkeling for the kids down by the south end near the rocks. Still beautiful and fun, but feels as busy as Kata main and Karon.

The beach was extremely packed and the water felt as if it’s been reused throughout the whole of Thailand; Warm, stagnant and cloudy. The sand on the other hand, even worse. It clung to me the whole day and even ended up in my hotel bed. Very unhappy with this experience, will not be returning swiftly. Avoid at all costs.

Beautiful deep clear blue waters. Some shore breaking waves. Not much in the town itself, but you can order drinks and food on the beach. Definitely worth a visit
