Kamala Beach Guide

What to Do in Kamala Beach

The beach is a favoured spot for witnessing sunsets. The northern end of Kamala Beach is suitable for swimming. Kamala is substantially more relaxed than some of the other areas in Phuket. It is also a lot quieter the beach is deserted more often than not; ideal for taking in some sun or just sitting and relaxing. A number of hotels and guesthouses sit along the road leading to the beach and provide accommodation that meets any budget. A number of stalls sell fresh food at very reasonable prices meaning you can pick at something all day if you like For those looking for great views, Khao Phanthurat is about 30 metres above sea level and from the top you can get an excellent perspective of Kamala’s 2.5 kilometer long ‘half moon’ of a bay. Phuket FantaSea is located to the north of the beach.

Kamala Activities


In high season the water at Surin Beach is exceptionally clear and some good snorkeling can be found by the rocks at the north and south ends of the beach. Equipment can be rented on the beach easily.

In low season the water is not clear and the waves make snorkelling very difficult. Volleyball is played when there's enough participants, there's a net close to the car park. Throughout the length several salas have been set up for Thai massage at the top of the beach. What's not Swimming.


If you follow the dictates of common sense and the rules that are summarized below, you should have a good and safe time with these unique and exciting watercraft. The first thing to remember is that Jet Skis can be legally operated at only five beaches in Phuket: Patong, Karon, Kata, Kamala, and Bangtao. This shouldn't be an inconvenience for anyone as these are the most popular beaches on the island. Even if someone has what looks like a Jet Ski concession at another beach, don't rent from them. You risk a substantial fine and possible imprisonment.surfing
