Most of the beach was marked closed due to potential rips. Only one section that was patrolled was ever marked open.

Quiet beach and with sport activities. Nothing much to say about the beach. It’s normal beach. Surrounding restaurants open in the evenings therefore may suitable for families to spend time.

Come on my Thai folk - you have a great beach (Karon Beach) but because of the plastic that washes up with each tide, the beach is somewhat unsightly... take care of your natural treasure, and clean the beach each morning/afternoon tide to keep the...More

I found most of the sun loungers at Karon to be 100B, Kata were charging 200B, that's expensive, beer you can pick up at many shops cheaper than the vendors at the beach, many charge more and keep the change.

You have to go before 9a to get a good sunbed. I was charged 400 baht with umbrella. I went to another beach 15 minutes away and they charge 200 baht with umbrella. My guess is you have to bargain.
