5/5 - (78 votes)

One of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket

Kata Noi Beach with its white sand and incredibly clear waters especially in high season, ranks as one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket. The beach remains quiet and not busy despite is located just next to the popular Kata Beach because it remains hidden from the main road!

This fantastic beach is lined by two superb resorts: The prestigious Katathani Phuket Beach Resort and the luxurious The Shore at Katathani. The visibility of the beach from the road is hidden by the superb hotel because it is built a long a 700-meter beachfront. Despite the beach is quite long and wide, it is only accessible from the three points.

In the evening, the area of Kata Noi Beach remains quiet. Instead, if you prefer having some fun, you can go to the central area of Kata. For example, the Kata Night Plaza where you will find many restaurants, bars, and clubs with live music nearby. In fact, these places are frequented mostly by tourists where they enjoy their evenings. However, good nightlife is recommended in the famous Bangla Road in Patong Beach which is the right place to have a fun night.

How to get to Kata Noi Beach

Kata Noi Beach is adjacent to Kata Beach to the south, so keep going straight after the well-known The Boathouse in Kata Beach and the road will eventually rise and will continue uphill. Please keep right till reach the prestigious Katathani Phuket Beach Resort. Instead, driving downhill from Karon Viewpoint, just 100 meters after the SIS Kata Resort, turn left and continue till the end of the road. Well, you are arrived.

What to do in Kata Noi Beach

In the center part of Kata Noi Beach there is a umbrella zone with sun loungers at 200 Baht each. In addition, there is also a massage corner. A massage by the sea is truly relaxing especially doing a foot massage. There is a small bar where they serve cold drinks, fruit smoothies and some Thai beers. They also serve several Thai dishes to get through the day, but don’t think you will find an extensive menu.

Usually, I prefer going at the On The Rocks bar which is located in the southern part of the beach. It is a great place, offering a wide view over the whole Kata Noi beach. Moreover, the bar remains shaded, so, it is a perfect place to rehydrate yourself with a fresh coconut enjoying the sea breeze. Moreover, they also serve some snacks. Who wouldn’t do it!

The southern part of the beach is also excellent for snorkeling as the water is crystal clear. So, keep a mask and start swimming. Canoes and paddle boards are available. So, rent one of these for visiting the narrow coves on the left side of the beach. It is exciting, and moreover you will not forget these fantastic moments of your holiday when you will be at home!

Behind Kata Noi Beach there are only a couple of restaurants to dine at with a modest food choice. So where to eat near Kata Noi Beach? To get great restaurants nearby serving Thai, Italian and International food, need to reach the lively center of Kata. There is a vast choice to choose from, but it all depends on what you want to eat and spend.

If you are looking for restaurants with panoramic views towards the ocean, you need to head towards Kata Noi hill. There are several open-air restaurants on the roadside, serving delicious Thai and international cuisine at affordable prices. These are also great places especially to get a sunset dinner. Below there is a list of the best restaurants near Kata Noi Beach that you should try.

Mom Tri’s Kitchen – Villa Royale

Mom Tri’s Kitchen is an award winning restaurant of Villa Royale, one of the best restaurant in Phuket, located on the rocks in the northern part of the beach. The restaurant is on multi-level terraces overlooking the crystal clear waters of Kata Noi Beach and the Andaman Sea. It is great for lunch and even for a romantic sunset dinner.

The restaurant serves excellent Italian cuisine: homemade pasta, pizzas, salads, and desserts at affordable prices! Furthermore, if you are tired and do not want to go out, the restaurant also provides DELIVERY service.

The Sundeck Phuket

The Sundeck Phuket will be the first hillside chic restaurant on the right side of the road. In fact, with its trendy style it is inevitable not to see it. It serves an inspired Mediterranean cuisine accompanied by good wines. Moreover, it is built on 2 levels, offering to the guests a spectacular view over the whole bay of Kata Noi.

After Beach Bar and Baan Chom View restaurants

After Beach Bar and Baan Chom View are 2 popular restaurants with stunning sea view, built on wooden stilts. Seen both from outside, they seem modest with their strange dark entrances, but be aware that, they are there more than 2 decades. Once you arrive at their terraces, you will admire an extraordinary panoramic view over the whole blue bay of Kata Noi. Probably, it is one of the most beautiful panoramas on the island. Both restaurants mostly serve Thai cuisine and some international dishes at affordable prices. Beers and soft drinks are available, but I highly recommend my favorite drink, the fresh coconut smoothie!

Tree Bay Clubhouse

Tree Bay Clubhouse is a great restaurant for a sunset dinner with panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. Strategically nestled below the Karon Viewpoint, its large terrace boasts a unique view of the tree bays of Phuket: Kata Noi Beach, Kata Beach, and Karon Beach, making it one of the best restaurant with sea view in Phuket. Enjoy an unforgettable experience indulging gourmet cuisine, exquisite selected wines, all accompanied by pleasant music. Booking in advance is highly recommended to get the best table with a view.

Karon Viewpoint

From here, if you continue for less than 2 kilometers, you will find the Karon Viewpoint. This viewpoint is the only one on the whole island that offers a breathtaking panoramic view of 3 beaches. Kata Noi Beach the closest, Kata Beach and Karon Beach far away. Karon Viewpoint in Thai is called ‘Kho Sam Haad’, which means ‘The hill of the three beaches’. Did you know this?

Low season

The low season in Phuket runs from May to October, which coincides with the rainy season. In those months it may rain often, and the western monsoon winds making the sea rough with high waves and dangerous rip currents. Even so, this makes the beach relatively quiet, but it is the best time for surfers to visit. During the low season is not allowed swimming in the sea, so booking a hotel with swimming pool is absolutely a great idea for swimming safely. Katathani Phuket Beach and The Shore by Katathani are the only two hotels with beautiful swimming pools and direct access to Kata Noi Beach.
