Kamala Beach, Phuket, july 7th 2009, a very quite place on earth
Kamala Beach Phuket one of Phukets pristine beaches, Kamala beach is located just south of Surin Beach. One thing about the northern beaches, they generally dont get the high concentration of tourists as do the southern Phuket beach line does. Kamala beach is also another place I like to do distance swims, my main entry point is on the southern end of the beach and from there I head north to my exit point.
Kamala beach reminds me very much on what most of Phuket was like over 25 years ago, its relatively undeveloped, you can rent a bungalow near the beach cheap, plenty of small seaside restaurants to choose from and of course you dont really have the crowds, no matter what season it is.
During the low season Kamala beach is often only has a few tourists on the beach, some business establishments even close down this part of the season so, if you visit Phuket during the low season, you can count on not traveling to a crowded beach.
The surf can also get a little bit rough during the monsoon season, so please take extra caution when doing any type of water activity during this part of the year. If you are looking for great places to eat, no problem, you can find numerous seaside restaurant locations all up and down this great beach.
