Phuket is home to many beautiful beaches and one of them is Kata beach. Coming here, you have the opportunity to experience many interesting activities that makes your trip more memorble.
Dino Park Mini Golf
Popular with both adults and kids, Dino Park Mini Golf is an ideal family outing destination. Because of Phuket’s high humidity and heat, it’s best to frequent the place after the heat of day has abated. The 18-hole mini-golf course has different dinosaurs at each hole and is challenging in parts but nevertheless ‘doable’ for younger players. The clever lighting and atmospheric volcano that ‘erupts’ every 30 minutes with ersatz flames and a fog-like spray is best appreciated after dusk.
Kayaking and long tail boats
On Kata Noi Beach you can try kayaking for around 200 baht an hour. Head south towards Nui Beach where the coastline is untouched. Hire a local boat and go snorkeling. There are excellent reefs at the southern end of Kata Beach and also by Poo Island, just offshore. Longtail boats can also be rented for around 600 baht an hour, depending on the number of passengers and your negotiating skills.
Spa and Thai Massage
Give yourself and your loved ones something special during your stay in Kata by booking a spa treatment and you will never regret it. Most spa centres feature well-trained therapists who are wonderful examples of the art of Thai hospitality. For the first-time customer, try the traditional Thai massage and/or the famous foot massage.
Surfing in Kata Beach
Phuket is notoriously unreliable for the continuity of its surf but that doesn’t put off real enthusiasts and neither has it stopped surfing clubs from forming nor a three-times-a-year surfing competition from being organised. The waves are storm generated so you’re only going to catch the big ones in the more volatile low season.
Surf House Phuket
Surf House Phuket is every surfer’s dream: a place where you can ride the waves every day no matter what the weather conditions. With an adjacent bar and restaurant, Surf House Phuket is a world to itself and as a result it is tremendously popular. Located by the Kata/Karon administrative offices at Kata Beach, Surf House is centered on a high-pressure wave-generating machine that throws a four-inch-deep sheet of water up a sloping ‘pool’. Beginner surfers hold onto a guiding safety rope held by a staff member and, if they happen to fall or slip, instead of falling downwards the strong water flow ensures they fall upwards!
Thai cooking classes
Check out the culinary workshops at Mom Tri’s Boathouse held every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 14:00. The classes encourage participation by the students and involve Chef Tamanoon’s own recipes. The complete, two-day course features appetizers and salads on Saturday, and main courses and desserts on Sunday. Each class is followed by a leisurely lunch at which students can taste their own creations. Graduates receive a Boathouse certificate, a Boathouse apron and recipes.
