While driving to the jetty, our bus passed by Kata beach and Karon beach. Unlike Patong beach, Kata and Karon beach are more quiet and laid back. They are definitely less vibrant than Patong beach but if you want a more relaxed holiday, i believe its a nice beach to stay as well. The beaches are more beautiful as it was not so commercially packed with rented beach chairs.
We arrived at Coral beach. It is just another island, nothing much to do and see but the water is clear. Good for a relaxed afternoon swimming, snorkelling and sun-bathing. We were so excited cos' our package includes a para sailing but that day's weather was too windy thus they had to cancel it. :(
We had nothing much to do except snorkelling, munching on tibits and dd taking a 'beach portfolio' of mine. They were not too good to be shown here (cos' of his poor photography skills and not me!) :P
Hehe... The sand was fine and beautiful, perfect for engraving. :P
