Kata Beach

Kata Beach is a beautiful beach town for travelers to escape from the stresses of every day life and enjoy a slice of island relaxation.

The weather sits between 70 and 85 degrees, with a rainy season from April until November. During the rainy season some of the world's best surfers can be found on Kata's beaches chasing the waves of the south pacific swells. Any other time of the year the beaches are dominated by tourists lounging in the white sand, enjoying the stunning views of the horizon over Thailand's pristine waters.

Kata Beach is one of Thailand's best family destinations. Take the kids to Aloha! Surf House, a surf club, bar & bistro located right on the water. Kids can be found lining up to try out the Surf Simulator, which allows kids to catch an artificial wave and learn the mechanics of surfing in a safe environment. Parents can join their kids in the fun or enjoy delicious island cocktails at the bar.

Have you ever wished you could walk among elephants? Kata Beach is home to Kok Chang Safari Elephant Trekking. This elephant sanctuary is located in the heart of a tropical jungle. It offers several routes for riding on a full-grown elephant through the jungle as you experience the area's diverse plant and wildlife. Rides range from 20 minutes to 1 hour and will not leave your family disappointed.

If marine life is more your style, Kata Beach is one of the best areas in the Pacific for scuba diving and snorkeling. Book a day trip with one of the island's trained scuba instructors and get a first-hand look at some the ocean's most majestic creatures.

The island's guides are locals filled with knowledge and history about Kata beach. A day under their instruction will make you an overnight expert on Thailand's rich diversity.

No matter what the purpose of your vacation, Kata Beach has something to tantalize every tourist.
