Kalim Beach in Phuket

A Beach with Local Touches Just North of Patong

Kalim Beach is located just north of Patong Beach and, unlike its famous neighbour, still retains some of its local Thai touches. A concrete parking and vendor space at its southern end in front of the local school cuts the beach into two parts and hosts a popular small street food market with half-a-dozen stands selling mataba, noodle soup, roti, Thai ice-creams and other delicacies, as well as soft drinks.

Kalim Beach itself is pretty rocky and not very attractive for swimmers, even though some snorkelling is possible at high tide. The highlight of the beach is surfing in low season. Kalim is considered one of the best surfing spots in Phuket, and some competitions – such as the Quiksilver Thailand Competition in 2012 – are held there. Another activity at Kalim, albeit up the road on the hillside this time, is the exhilarating Zorbing at Rollerball.

Kalim is also famous for its fine-dining venues: Acqua, White Box, Lim’s, and the eclectic Brush, are well-respected restaurants – each with their own particular atmosphere, décor and cuisine.
