Phuket Area Guide
Kamala Beach (หาดกมลา)
Kamala Beach
Kamala Beach
Kamala Beach (หาดกมลา) is a secluded stretch of sand with a relaxed feel, conveniently located just north of Patong and south of Surin Beach. The beach is beautiful and about 2 kilometers in length. Kamala Beach is quite nice and is not too crowded except for peak season. In the afternoons the water spectacularly recedes leaving a blanket of rocks at the left end of the beach for local fishing and a beautiful swimming area at the right end of the beach.

Kamala Beach is the kind of place you can relax with friends in a small restaurant or local bar, so nightlife tends to be low key. Another highlight at Kamala beach is "Phuket Fanta Sea", the cultural theme park that combines the rich heritage of Thailand with unique 4D effects and animals, with its themed 4000 seat restaurant offering a grand buffet of Thai and international cuisine and colourful nightly stage extravaganza.
How to get there?
Kamala Beach is 25 kilometres from Phuket town and Songtaews leave for the area on a regular basis. If you are going there from Patong, a Songtaew going along the coast road will cost 20 Baht (Price is subject to change).
Kamala Temple Wat Kamala
Wat Kamala is a Buddhist temple at the Southern of Kamala Beach in Phuket. It is a small temple but it has its own character. In spite of this the temple and its gardens look surprisingly new as they were renovated after 2004. Kamala Temple features a main chapel, a bell tower and many Buddha images and statues depicting his life. Visitors will enjoy a visit to this charming village temple. Dressing respectfully (no revealing attire) is a must as this is a holy place for many Thais.

Kamala View Point Kamala View Point
High in the lush green hills above Kamala village, From this point can be seen the bays of Kamala bay. It’s a bit of a trek up the hill and thru the rubber plantations overgrown paths, but once at the top a great view awaits. Not a tourist spot like kata viewpoint and the like but a nice spot for local Kamala folk to check out their house from the hills.!
