Kamala Beach: An oasis for peace and relaxation
The small town of Kamala is located in the east of Phuket Island, in the south of Thailand and belongs to Kathu County. Especially families, seniors and couples travel to Kamala Beach to enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. They find relaxation in one or the other spa, resort, villas or first-class hotels of the upper class. Kamala Beach has only a subdued nightlife, the place is more suitable for relaxing and feeling good. It is made for people who are not in a hurry.
The long curved beach is the place to relax on Phuket. Although the southern end of Kamala Beach can get crowded in high season, the north end is always quiet. Along the beach there are numerous four-star hotels and many a resort. At the southern end of the “Rim Haad” (Beach Road) there are several small hotels with 20 to 30 rooms for the small budget.

However, the holidaymaker should note that the opening hours here are not as generous as in other cities in Thailand. Many a restaurant closes already at 21 o’clock.
