Karon, in Phuket, is a resort on Thailand's largest island which is situated in a region of great natural beauty off of the south-west coast of the Andaman Sea. It is the quintessential perfect Thai beach with exotic colours, a calm atmosphere and warm weather during the high season. Karon holidays make the ideal choice for a winter getaway and the destination is a firm favourite with couples, families and solo holidaymakers.
The peak season of November to April is the ideal time to visit Karon, when the weather is warm and sunny and the sea is crystal clear. From May to October, Thailand's rainy season, there can be dangerous currents in the water. To start your Karon holidays you could opt to fly into Bangkok and enjoy the capital city of Thailand for a few days before moving on, or fly straight on to Phuket to start your beach holiday as you mean to go on. Thailand's time zone is GMT +7.
Karon is most famous for its stunning five kilometre stretch of fine white sand resting next to the blue and turquoise sea. The northern end of the beach is usually quiet and deserted; you might even get the space all to yourself.The neighbouring Kata Beach, just south of Karon, is also a popular spot for sunbathers. There is a relaxed nightlife scene, perfect for couples and families, as well as plenty of restaurants with great variety and shopping markets, including the night market at Karon Temple. If you are interested in casual sports, there is a Dino Park mini golf course, as well as the chance to try jet-skiing and parasailing.
