Sadly - a beach that needs major daily cleaning, and walls to be rebuilt, and at high tide - no area to sit on beach - and most of all... a beach full of rips and under-tows.... and for non swimmers... be very careful

The beach itself is great, picture perfect. But it has a lot of trash, debris and plastic. Needs a big clean up. I do not understand why the Kata Thani Beach Resort does not take care of it

This was our first time in Phuket, and we decided to go to some of the beaches while the sun was shining. Although the sea is a beautiful blue, and the sand fine and lovely to walk on, the amount of rubbish on the beach...More

one of my best spot in Phuket, clear water, soft sand. I love to run stairs and then jump into the water after that, Hope they will take care more about trash and those stinky smell when you walk down from stair.

Great beach and less busy than Kata. Worth the walk / drive and spending some time there. The shape of the bay makes the waves a bit fierce though!

The waters are clear. Compared to other beaches. The sand is nice. Truly relaxing. Nice time spending the sunset here. Its just a quick taxi ride from kata beach.

Less crowds but all the beauty. Nice white sand, clear water and a fun little primitive beach bar at the southern end.

Kata Noi is a superb beach. It is cleaned of debris every morning and the water is clear and the sand white and clean. Life guard on duty.

Hi. I apologize I am just seeing your question. I honestly did not notice any but I was not looking for them. I literally just swam in the warm waters.

Yes agree with other reply. Taxi tuk tuk is the best bet. Negotiate a fair price. 500baht is standard fare. Beautiful beach, worth the visit, but not to sure during monsoon season.
