The Lovely Bay of Kata
Kata is a very popular destination with its white sands, clear water and beautiful environment. This lovely bay is known for its spectacular palm-lined beach with various excellent facilities for visitors, like restaurants, accommodation and even nightlife venues. Even though there are quite many nightlife venues in the area, Kata is not a party beach, the nightlife is lively but not too raucous, in fact, Kata is actually a very popular destination for families. The great thing is that all those facilities are close to the beach.
From November to April, most visitors are just going to the beach to enjoy the sun, swimming and other typical beach activities, but in May to October many visitors come to this place just to surf, which is another thing Kata is best known for.
