About Kata Beach

SW-facing Kata Beach is the most popular spot, because the waves are punchy, fast and often bigger, especially at the south end near Kata Beach Resort. Breaks further out at size making the paddle tricky, especially in the southern corner where there are rocks and stronger rips.

There is a Quiksilver annual contest, but avoid after heavy rains, as it gets polluted.
