Karon Beach 2021

On a short trip to Patong recently, driving along the coast road, down from the Patong hills. I saw these amazing seascape clouds.
Stunning looking like oil paintings in the sky. Breathtaking but as the weather changed dark and almost frightening!

Karon Beach in Phuket is one of the longest beaches on the island, spanning 5 km of fine white sand overlooking the Andaman Sea. The northern end of the beach is usually deserted, making it an excellent spot for those who want the beach to themselves. The southern end, close to Kata, tends to be busier but it isn't that hard to find a nice spot for yourself.

There are very few waves during the high season (November–April), resulting in crystal-clear waters. However, Karon Beach experiences dangerous swells and riptides in the southwest monsoon season (May–October). While there are lifeguards on the beach, it's best to take note of warning flags and be very careful.

Sea turtles often lay their eggs in the sand at night. If you see any turtles or their tracks, inform your hotel so that they'll contact the Phuket Marine Biological Centre. The organisation's Sea Turtle Conversation Project aims to help the population grow by rescuing injured turtles and incubating eggs in a safe environment. Sadly I didn't get to see any that day, but they are reported to be there.

Rawai Boats

One of my peaceful moments short videos that I have finally had time to get to making.

Interestingly this was photographed this last Sunday after an unexpected visit to Rawai Beach . I spent quite a bit of time there on Sunday afternoon, and took , as I do, images to remind myself to remember a calm and enjoyable moment of life. enhanced even more by the tide going out leaving the local fishing boats stranded in the sand.

Watching people picking their way through the rocks to find small crabs and shellfish. So for anyone who might feel like a breath of fresh air, have a watch, and lose yourself somewhere beautiful in your mind!
