Kata Beach has long been charming people of all nationalities with its white sand, clear water, and spectacular line of palm trees. It is a very popular destination for families. A variety of water sports -- such as jet skiing, banana boat riding, and parachuting -- can be enjoyed at the beach. For those eager to snorkel or dive, a part of the beach called Koh Puu is the perfect site. It does not have strong currents, thus making it great for both beginner and professional divers.
