Kamala Beach lies just north of the lights and noise of Patong and is a quieter stretch of sand with a more relaxed feel. This well-enclosed bay and fishing village surrounded by forested hills is one of the most beautiful places in Phuket.

With its quieter pace, Kamala has become a favoured spot for retirees and other longer-term visitors staying in small hotels, villas and apartment rentals around the village, though the arrival of some high-class beach clubs at the northern end of the beach have upped the tempo a little. On the headland to the south are a number of luxury villa developments, with great views of Kamala Bay and beyond along its winding road.
