Karon Beach The second largest
of Phuket's principal tourist beaches. large resort
complexes line the road back of the beach, but the
strand itself, long and broad, has no development.
The sand is very white, and squeaks audibly when
walked on. The southern point has a fine coral reef
stretching toward Kata and Poo Island. Restaurants,
bars, tour companies, and other non-hotel businesses
are at the north end, near the traffic circle, and
at the south, on the little road connecting the
back road with the beach road.
