Kata Beach Holiday Packages

Cut out from the crowd and head over to Kata Beach, a charming spread in the beautiful coastal city of Phuket. Kata Beach holiday packages are perfect for just about everyone. Seriously—romantic honeymoons, family retreats or solo travel adventures are all a little bit better in this balmy tropical wonderland. During the high season (mid-October through late February), Kata Beach is at its best: you can take a swim in the warm water, sink your toes into the sand or just crack open a beer and engage in some high-quality people-watching. But if you're into surfing, come during the low season, when the water is rough and Kata Beach plays host to multiple surfing competitions.

Things to Do in Kata Beach

Solitude seekers are better off near the oldest part of town, Kata Centre, where you can hang out with the locals and listen to lurid stories about previous visitors. If the excitement of tourism is what greases your gears, you'd better head to South Kata, where the large hotels are. Either way, there are ample opportunities for jet ski and kayak rentals in both places, as well as parasailing or cruising on a hightail boat.

Next, get a Kata Beach car rental, and drive the Kata Beach back road for some great views before stopping to meditate at the humble town temple. Take your Zen mind (and your car) a few kilometres further south to Kata Viewpoint, a scenic spot that overlooks three different bays. An afternoon of adventure seeking might also lead you to an artificial surf park, a dinosaur park or a dance party held under the city's ancient trees. T-Rexes and music? We’re sold. Send pictures, please.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Kata Beach has real small-town charm. Enjoy a massage, get a haircut or see a movie in one of the old cinemas (residents often gather in the theatre to watch cult films like "King Kong"). Later, go shopping for a bathing suit, parasol or a fun pair of flip-flops, and then mail a postcard from the town's post office on Patak Road. Luxury dining is most posh in South Kata, where the large hotels are built over the beach. Come here for the elegant and ornate Thai dining rooms and the busy outdoor bars and dance floors. Mingle with visitors from all over the world and enjoy the ocean air, dark nights and romantic lights. Toast to good fortune (and getting barrelled) with a neighbour before heading back to your room and letting the ocean lull you to sleep.

If you end up imbibing a little too much during your evening festivities, just sleep in. Customise your Kata Beach package deals so your holiday goes the way you want it; if you want to snooze all day, go for it! There really aren’t many go-go bars around Kata Beach, but that's no reason to be sad; the bustling beer bars of Kata Centre fuel the town's nightlife, so get started throwing back a crisp Thai brew and meeting new friends. If that’s not really your thing, you can also grab a coffee in one of the beach's many coffee shops.
