Why do people book transfers from Karon Beach

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost from Karon Beach is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Karon: useful information

This beach is one of the most popular tourist places in Phuket, and its overall length is about 5 km. Many international hotels are located here, that is why you will easily find a suitable place to stay.

The sea is clean but deep, hence one should swim there carefully. In the southern part of the beach, you can look at coral reefs, while in the northern part there are cafes, restaurants, and shops for tourists.

The shore here is known by the “signing sand” which squeaks peculiarly because of high concentration of silica in it. Among the attractions, a luxurious temple Wat Karon and a giant monument of Buddha must be marked. Halfway to the Nai-Harn Beach, there is a viewing platform, which offers amazing views to the shore, green hills, and neighboring islands.
