13 miles from Ao Chalong
This lovely 2-mile sand beach, backed by salt ponds and dunes, provides protected anchorage in 6-10 metres on a sandy bottom along its entire length. For easy access to shore facilities, position (A) directly off Karon Circle is most convenient.
Karon Beach has experienced significant development, with several major high rise hotels easily recognised from far offshore. Phuket Town is about 40 minutes away by tuk tuk.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
