This long stretch of sand may stay low-key and uncrowded, but there’s plenty Kamala hotels where you can lay your head between busy days…lounging. Want to wake up to new sights each morning? Check out other accommodation in Phuket, too.
In Kamala, it’s perfectly acceptable to do absolutely nothing, really. Don your togs and slather on some sunscreen to catch some rays. Kamala’s clear water and calm currents make it a diver’s playground, so trade your sunbrella for snorkelling gear and swim through the bright coral and sea life. If you’d rather float atop the water, take a surf lesson and charge some waves. Wash the salt out of your hair and head to Phuket FantaSea, a variety show extravaganza celebrating the traditions of Thailand. Later, wander south to Patong for some nightlife shenanigans. Afterward, rest up in your Kamala hotel, then take a morning walk out to Wat Baan Kamala, a gleaming Buddhist temple on the south end of the beach. Make sure you eat your fill of coastal Thai cuisine before you go home—think seafood stew, crab curry and spicy salads. You’re welcome.
