Kata Rocks is bringing
the famous American Poker Run to Phuket

The third edition of the Kata Rocks Poker Run (KRPR) took place on Saturday 9 December and saw it to be a beautiful day with enthusiastic participants. The route around the island of Phuket started at Kata Rocks, with a second start at Koh Rang Noi.

On the way, participants collected playing cards at respectively: Xana Beach, the Playyard, Koh Rang Noi and Banana Beach and then one upon return to Kata Rocks. A distinct level of friendly ‘Miami Vice’ vibes is always part of the KRPR with the focus on a day of fun out on the water.
