next bay up from Kata and much larger than Kata or Patong and therefore
more exposed to wind and swell.
Ashore are many good
seafood and European restaurants.
Prices both here and Kata are
5-20% cheaper than Patong.
Most yachts prefer to anchor at either Patong
or Kata and catch one of the many Bemo's to Karong.
Just north of
Karong is a small bay, which is the location of the 5 star Meridian
Resort, sister of the Nai Harn resort.
There is only room for 5-7
boats and a bit of an uphill walk to the main road thru the resort.
