Kamala Beach, Kamala

3.9
#3 of 9 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.

  • The area is a little off the beaten track and probably because of this, our family to suit the very friendly and helpful staff. This situation at the beginning of the season, the first week of January. All that is needed for the comfort of the holiday can be found on the beach! Select an appropriate location and rötkähdä Sun Chair (100 baht). Chair, the owner shall then all the rest: he carries the cold beverages, fresh fruits, the kokatut, move the shadows. He also hopes that you will come tomorrow and take care of you then. Let yourself get pampered at! In an appropriate proportion, on the beach on call loophole but the business model is not at all offensive, more polite. There are plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the beach and beach lounges to suit all tastes. Shower or toilet-possibility we have noticed, but we lived in a hotel near the beach, so it does not really matter. I think a good beach.

  • Bit busy but very clean. Lots of food places available, bars, shopping places if you need anything. You can rent lounge bed and towels for 100 baht. Beautiful scenery at nightfall with long-tail boats casting silhouettes on the landscape.
  • Kamala might be the 4th or 5th most popular beach in Phuket. Still manages to keep some local restaurants almost on the beach. Large bay, not too crowded, 2 nice beach clubs and some really nice high end resorts. A good family destination
  • Extremely beautiful place. Can be a bit crowded at times but still worth a visit. Love this place.
  • Kamala is a beach which offers a lot sanity, ease and peace is Phuket. It is around 15 mins drive from the famous Patong beach. It feels amazing to stay here after a crazy night in Patong. It has few small local restaurants and cafes which offers quality food. Like most beaches in Phuket this is a beautiful white sand clean beach.
  • Nice relaxing beach. Good for those who want to run in the morning or just relax.. Beautiful sunsets over here!

Where to stay in Kamala

Unlike much of Phuket Island, Kamala doesn't attract a large number of international visitors, so accommodations remain a bit sparse. The seafront offers some high-end hotels and resorts, along with a few plainer hotels and apartment rentals. Farther away from the coastline, you can find some lower-priced options at hotels and private homes.
