The Beach of Kamala and Photo Gallery

Kamala Beach Guide

Tranquil and calm, the pretty white sands of Kamala beckon most people by day, but if you're seeking more than sunbathing on a perfect beach, there are other options such as snorkeling at the north end of the beach.

There aren't any waves from November to April (high season) and the water is crystal clear and calm. From May to October, there can be large waves caused by ocean swell. While swimming is usually perfectly safe on Kamala beach, you should stay out of the water when the red flags are flying.

Kamala Beach Facilities

There are no public toilets on Kamala Beach but the many beachfront hotels have facilities. Beach mats and umbrellas are available for a few hundred baht each from small stores near the sand.

Kamala Beach Restaurants

The main source of lunch towards the south end of Kamala beach is the many beachfront hotels, that serve mainly Thai and International dishes. There are also a few local restaurants a short walk away.

At the north end, there's an area with many hawker stalls selling all kinds of Thai delights from different areas of the country. You'll usually find chicken satay, spicy Thai salads, Phad Thai and Thai curries amongst other dishes and all kinds of sweet deserts. Further north than that, you'll find luxury beach clubs Café del Mar Phuket and HQ Beach Lounge, both of which serve high-quality international food.

Kamala Beach Watersports

There's a limited choice of snokelling spots close to the shore on Kamala Beach, mostly found around the rocks at the northern end. There is some good scuba diving, but not departing straight from the beach. Dive shops will be able to arrange trips for you.

Jetskiing and parasailing is available in high season and often in low season, and you can always take a ride in a long-tail boat, with many of them moored at the southern end of the beach. Beware when jetskiing, as many jetskis have 'no insurance' stickers on the front of them, meaning that any damage to the vehicle, yourself or other water-users (whether or not you caused it) will be your responsibility.

Surfing: The north end of Kamala's northernmost beach is a beach break with stable sandbanks, due to the reefs. Here, there are consistent waves of up to 3 metres and they build up the closer to shore you get.

Variable winds with swell up to 3 metres. There is a point break for experienced surfers.

Kamala Beach Activities

There's not too much happening on Kamala Beach, other than the aforementioned water sports. Sunbathing and reading a good book are the most popular activities here.

November to April some good snorkeling can be found by the rocks at the north end of the beach, equipment can be rented on the beach easily.

Renting a longtail boat to explore the neighbouring beaches of Laem Singh or Surin Beach is a very nice way to spend the afternoon.
