Phuket Property in Karon - Resorts, Apartments and Condos

Phuket Property in Karon - Overview

Phuket Property in Karon is located on the popular west coast heading south over the hill from Patong. Karon Beach is the longest in the south.

Kata Noi, Kata and Karon Beaches Phuket Looking North Over the the last 10 years developers have basically joined Karon and Kata which were once two small separate villages.
The only thing that differentiates between the 2 areas is the small headland between Karon Beach Resort and Club Med.
Although not nearly as busy as its big brother Patong, as you travel south along Karon, towards Kata, there is a distinct change in atmosphere.

The intensity of the tourism industry is no where near that of Patong, and the southern end of Karon is reasonably laid back, although during the high season, parking and space under the purple bank sponsored beach umbrellas can be hard to find.
