Kamala Beach, Kamala

#3 of 8 in Parks in Kathu
Located just north of Patong, Kamala Beach sits in an enclosed bay known for its tranquil stretches of sandy shoreline. Explore the nearby fishing village, take in the views of the forested backdrop, and, of course, relax on the sand. This attraction is a favorite among locals and others looking for a quiet vacation experience. While most stay at a nearby villa or boutique hotel, you can also simply come and enjoy this beach for a single day during your trip. Escape the noisy city streets, bask in the sun, take a dip in the clear water, and enjoy the quaint restaurants near this calm beach.

  • Kamala Beach is very nice, especially at night, compared to Patong where there are a lot of people and where it is sometimes difficult to navigate. Full of small restaurants and massage parlor (I highly recommend the Rita Massage salon at the beginning) along the beach.

  • What's not to like. Beautiful beach and plenty of facilities/vendors in a good way. Beach is very clean and not too crowded
  • Although only around the corner from Patong, the beach is a lot cleaner and calmer. Also quite decent restaurants directly at the beachfront. At night, the pathway along the beach makes Kamala a worthy stop if u are on the way after sunset.
  • Our favorite beach! Now sunbeds back again =very important.
  • I love this beach, more clean and more trees, but of course there also white sand beach and clear blue sea water. The beachwalk is shady because of the trees along the road. Here you can have street seller offering hats, food and drinks, massage and even tattoo.
  • This beach is not crowded at all. I went there in the morning to just stand and watch the waves. It was calming. There weren't any tourists around, just me and a few locals.
