Kata Noi Beach is about 700 metres long, and is separated from Kata Beach, to the north, by the headland that is home to Kata Rocks. Conveniently accessible from the main road, Kata Noi Beach with its clear waters and white soft sand is usually uncrowded. During the rainy season, this can be a dangerous place, so surfers love it. Equipment can be hired. For the rest of us don’t swim, or even paddle, if you see a red flag.
