Visitors will be pleased with the eating and drinking options at Kata Beach, which are lined along the beach and in Kata centre. You don’t even have to leave the beach to enjoy a meal, as vendors pass by selling ice cream, sandwiches, fresh fruit and other snacks. You should expect to pay more for a meal here than on other parts of the island, as they cater predominantly to tourists. For cheaper eats, head to the twice weekly Kata Fresh Market. Bars to suit all tastes line the road in Kata centre, from cool laid-back reggae bars to trendy beach clubs.Shopping
Most of the shops in Kata Beach are geared towards tourist and sell souvenirs, handicrafts, T-shirts, beachwear and jewellery. These are all located along Kata Road and Patak Road. For more options, take a taxi to Phuket Town or Patong.
