Kamala beach is small compared to other beaches. It's a lovely and peaceful. There aren't many tourists who visit this beach. One can find a lot of restaurants and massage parlors along the shore. A long walk along the beach is recommended.

We went early in the morning after Songkran. It wasn't busy yet but the area around it was dirty. Someone told me it was because the government had just come and cleaned house.

My family have rested here in 2015 and in 2016 in the Sunwing Resort Hotel that is situated in the center of the Kamala Beach. Very calm place with clean water and sand. After high water we have seen... More

This was third beach we stayed at in our 9 day Phuket honeymoon. We walked the length of the beach on two different days. The Novotel end was pristine and is the basis of the rating. Not crowded, gentle slope and no swell... just lovely.

This is far away from the hustle of Patong but only 15 minutes in a taxi. The most beautiful beach on the island. Heaps of bars and restaurants. Great hotels.
