Kamala Beach, Kamala

3.9
#4 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.

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.
