White Sand, Blue Waves and the Andaman Sea
Karon Beach Phuket
Surfing waves and sunshine at Karon Beach Phuket, Thailand, one of the island's longest white sand beaches and a favorite for tourism activities...
While Karon beach is beautiful, it is open to the wind and waves of the Southwest Monsoon and can have unpredictable ocean currents. For Phuket and tourist surfers, the beach is a paradise for finding uncrowded peaks to catch waves and reflect on the island experience.
Surfing in Phuket is increasing popular. Students studying abroad with Education Abroad Asia in Phuket will visit Karon Beach on weekends for surfing lessons. When the surf is small, Karon Beach is a pleasant place to practice as it offers more room and a chance to find your own waves away from the crowds at Kata and other beaches. Safety is always important and students must first demonstrate that they can swim.
