Kamala Beach is a popular destination for families. It used to be a very quiet beach, but its popularity expanded with the opening of Cafe Del Mar beach club. Kamala is still a beautiful long beach with clear waters during high season, featuring a nice amount of beach restaurants and shopping options, several great hotels including some with direct beach access.
Kamala consists of two villages, the original Muslim town in the very back with not much happening around here, and the touristic part of Kamala built all along the beach.
Besides Fantasea Park, this market and of course the beach itself, there are no real attractions to see or visit. There are a couple of modest beaches (Rayee Beach and Hua Beach) to the south on a tiny long road leading to nowhere. This road was meant to reach Patong, and you do see Patong from the end of it, but someone didn’t agree to sale the last bit of land. This road is nicknamed “The Millionaire Row” home of the beautiful Paresa Resort and a collection of incredible private villas. Almost at the very end, you can even enjoy a drink on a little bar built on top of rock boulders with amazing views on Patong Bay.
The beach has always been the main reason travellers prefered Kamala. The beach is long and wide with soft pale sand and is lined with casuarinas and coconut trees. The sea is very shallow and clear during high season.
