It's still a fantastic beach, but unfortunately, it's becoming much more filthy each year. What a shame is that such a beautiful place packed with so much rubbish. When you swim here, you can find everything from plastic bags to ropes and other junk. Used...More

Kata Noi beach is one of my favourites in the whole of Phuket due to the fact it is not that well known. There is a tidy swell here so be careful if you're not that good a swimmer even though there are lifeguards.

Coming from Australia we are spoilt for beaches, Kata Noi was a dissapointment; as it was the wet season the sea was full of rubbish and not pleasant to be in. The beach itself is nice, small and does not have so many people selling...More

Neighbour to Kata Beach (the name literally meaning “little Kata Beach”), Kata Noi is just under 700m long, but is an amazingly beautiful spot. The sand there is among the finest, the sea among the nicest and the surrounding restaurants among the finest in Phuket.

We were a little late for sunset but little did we know, that’s when the magic began. Kata Noi caters to those staying in the high end villas nearby, so the beach is pretty clear, (maybe because these rich people have the view in the...More

Yes agree with other reply. Taxi tuk tuk is the best bet. Negotiate a fair price. 500baht is standard fare. Beautiful beach, worth the visit, but not to sure during monsoon season.
