    You've just discovered where Thailand's best beaches are!

    If you're looking to book a vacation in Karon, you're clearly a savvy traveller who's figured out where the best beaches are. This resort town and beach occupies a prime strip of coast on Phuket Island's western side. It's known for its 3-kilometre beach of soft white sand, and its laid-back vibes and upscale restaurants. Nearly all Karon Vacation Rentals are on the beach or a hop, skip and a jump away from it, so you can spend your days idling on soft sand and basking in the blissful blue waters of the warm Andaman Sea.

    Spend days exploring Karon's glorious shores

    You won't be able to get enough of Karon's incredible beaches, and if you want a really awesome view of them plus a nice little workout, head to Karon View Point to look out at Phuket's gorgeous western shore. It's almost impossible not to dine on the waterfront here with Karon's numerous beachside restaurants, and you can also golf with dinosaur statues at the jungle-like course at Dino Park Mini Golf. Phuket is full of rainforests, so there are tons of hiking and exploring opps or, if you prefer, ziplining and guided tours.

    So many magnificent temples and so little time

    Check out Buddhist temple Wat Suwan Khirikhet, with 2 large snake statues guarding its entrance. The snakes will surely let you in, so you can shop for sarongs, souvenirs, and street food at the Karon Temple Market. You can pay homage and/or get a leg workout at the stairs leading up to the impressive Big Buddha Statue. Slightly inland from Karon is the ornate 19th-century Chaithararam Temple. Head north up the coast to Phuket FantaSea, a cultural theme park with lavish buffets where you can indulge in delicious food for hours.

    The sea is a bona fide hot tub during monsoon season

    You may already know that Thailand has a tropical monsoon climate, which means that it's always hot, but for half of that time, it's raining buckets. Lucky for holiday travellers, the dry season, and the high season for Karon vacation rentals, is from late November to early April. Light rain starts in April, the hottest month, and it really starts pouring from May to November. The sea hovers around 27 degrees all year, except in May when it shoots up to a whopping 31 degrees.

    Phuket is like a page out of the Jungle Book

    Hat Karon, that 3-kilometre white-sand beach hugging the warm waters of the Andaman Sea, makes up most of Karon. Many Karon vacation rentals are on or in walking distance of the beach. The area's scattered with lush, jungle-covered hills you can hike up to take in some sweet views from the top. As for wildlife, Karon's got all the jungle animals, from monkeys to tigers. There's an elephant sanctuary where you can admire the magnificent creatures. In the water, there are tropical fish, bright corals, dolphins and whale sharks, and sometimes even an orca whale.
