This video is an area tour of Karon beach Phuket; I started this video on the northern end of Karon on Patak road west. I took this video in the early morning hours just after sunrise; I am around the South Sea resort and Movenpick resort area. This video will give you an idea what Karon is like, I have several videos from around Karon so I will try to give you a good tour of this beautiful Phuket location.
Karon is located just south of Patong beach, about a 10 minute ride and just a few minutes to the south is Kata beach where I am from. I love coming over to Karon, the beach is very beautiful and spacious, I believe its one of the biggest beaches in Phuket. During the early morning hours you will see tourists walking and running the beach, believe me, it really is a peaceful beach not matter what season it is.
The swimming and surfing is good, especially on the northern end, just be very cautious when in the water during the monsoon season, the currents can get pretty bad and there have been a small number of drowning over the last few years.
You can find a lot of nice places to dine in Karon, we have been to quite a few of them and they are fun to visit, so during you stay in Phuket, visit Karon beach and enjoy the peacefulness and always bring your camera.
