Kamala (กมลา) is on the west coast of Phuket, just to the north of Patong, and immediately south of Surin Beach.
Kamala,pronounced “Ga Ma Lar” provides a haven for those who prefer the quieter life. Although the southern end of the beach can get busy in the high season, the northern end is peaceful all year round. “Rim Haad” (Beach Road), at the southern end, has a number of small 20-30 room hotels for the low/medium budget traveller. Friendly service and village feel and a diversity of restaurants and small bars can be found on this small road. Cheaper food options/market stalls can be found on the main Kamala Road.
