Kathu is a district of Phuket located on the west side of the island and includes the tourist hub of Patong and Kamala Beach. Kathu has areas of dense, tropical forest which have been carefully maintained to provide a range of fun activities for visitors and local expats.
Loch Palm Golf Course and its neighbour, Red Mountain Golf Course, are set in the lush tropical backdrop of Kathu. At these Phuket golf courses, a caddy is compulsory (and you will soon realise essential!) in order to enjoy your game in the heat and comfortably get around the course. Many people visit Phuket purely for the excellent golf facilities and these courses are a prime example of such excellent golfing facilities in Phuket.
For those who aren’t golf fanatics, other activities in the area include – the Flying Hanuman (a sky walk through the forest using zip-lines and bridges), jungle bungee jumping, roller ball zorbing, go karting and the Phuket Wake Park.
Kathu also offers some of the main shopping areas in Phuket. The largest is Central – a large, air conditioned shopping centre with many international shops, restaurants and a multiplex cinema. This is a great location for a rainy day on Phuket Island.
