Once only a fishing village, Kamala has emerged in recent years as one of the most desired locations and as an expat enclave.
Kamala is situated along a curving, gorgeous white sand bay on Phuket's west coast, right between Surin and Patong. This amazing location offers the perfect setting for families or groups with children, as it has a more relaxed vibe, compared to the chaotic Patong, and its beautiful waters are shallow and calm most of the year. Being located at the center of the island's west coast, Kamala is also the ideal place to stay if you intend to visit all the spectacular beaches lining the coastline. From Mai Khao to Nai Harn Beach, passing through Surin, Patong and Kata, you can choose a beach per day and still have plenty left to visit by the time your holiday ends.
