Just south over the hill from Kata Beach lies the Kata Noi Beach, which is shorter, secluded, and much less explored.
With 300 baht (about $3), anyone can get a tuk-tuk or taxi ride to Kata Noi away from the crowded beaches like Patong.
The roughly half-mile-long beach can easily be accessed from any of the 5-star hotels and restaurants surrounding it. It has remarkable surfing points along the stretch. The cliffs surrounding the beach keeps the crowds away, making it secluded and serene.
At the Kata Noi Beach
There are affordable places for hiring beach umbrellas and beds. The downside is that it lacks good parking and security arrangements. This beach offers plenty of beach and water sports activities like banana boats, jet skis, and parasailing.
