2. Kata Beach

Kata Beach is divided into two areas, Kata Yai and Kata Noi. Kata Yai Beach is wider and more developed. And it is also the only place to surf in Phuket. The waves in Thailand are not as famous as other places like Bali; however, Kata Yai is a suitable place to learn surfing. Kata Noi is quieter with a few resorts and food stalls for tourists. 

Although Kata Beach is not as long as other beaches, the soft sand and gentle waves are suitable for swimming and relaxing. Restaurants here serve mainly European-American style. There are also bars but not bustle and noisy as in Patong, which is suitable for those who need the quietness.

5. Lipa Noi

Lipa Noi is located near the main ferry port of Koh Samui. It becomes one of the first choices for tourists when coming to Thailand. The beach is beautiful with white sand. There are no rocks or underwater corals, which makes this place one of the safest places for children on the island. The water is quite shallow.

In Lipa Noi, visitors can find bungalows spaced apart or more luxurious resorts, including Nikki Beach. Apart from the coast, there are a few bars but they do not have many interesting activities. So, the bars here do not attract many tourists.
