Kamala Beach is located on Phuket Island
between Surin Beach
and Patong Beach, just 30 minutes from the Phuket airport
. Perfect sunsets and unspoiled tropical beaches and cascading mountains are some of the highlights that make Kamala vacation rentals
unique. Surrounded by the coconut palms you will find your own Phuket paradise at your Owner Direct condo rental.
Just north of the lights and noise of Patong lies Kamala Beach this quieter stretch of sand, with a more relaxed feel. This well-enclosed bay and fishing village surrounded by forested hills is one of the most beautiful places in Phuket. With its quieter pace
, over the last few years Kamala has become a favored spot for retirees and other longer-term visitors staying in vacation rentals, condos and other accommodation rentals
nestled around the village. On the headland to the south are a number of vacation rentals, with great views of Kamala Bay and beyond.
While Kamala doesn't attract tourists in the same numbers as other places, it has a certain 'niche'. Returning vacationers consider Kamala Beach one of Thailand's
best kept secrets.
There are a few interesting attractions in the village such as Phuket Fanta Sea theme park, Kamala Temple and the village Friday market
. There's a saying that if you really want to get to know a country, you should visit its local markets. In Thailand that's certainly true; you can soak up a whole lot of local flavor – and eat some too – just by walking around the local market (or ‘talad’ in Thai) in close proximity to your accommodation. Thai fresh markets are cornucopias of colorful fruit and vegetables, prepared snacks and food, chunks of red or green curry, dried foods, unrecognizable merchandise, CD’s, DVD’s, and computer games and brightly hued T-shirts and jeans, hair accessories and handicrafts…and all at bargain prices. Anything can happen at a Thai local market.
Although Kamala has recently grown rapidly, from the comfort of your vacation home rental you can still enjoy the seaside village atmosphere that first attracted visitors all those years ago. Enjoy staying at your condo rentals or lodging accommodations, rented directly from the owner. The beachside bars are a good spot for a sundowner and to catch a glimpse of local fisherman coming in for the night. When the sun goes down, most visitors enjoy strolling from their accommodations
through the village to one of the small local restaurants – basic but tasty. During high season, local vendors set up stalls along the beach, so you can pick up some beachwear bargains and souvenirs at leisure. You'll find most shops conveniently close to the beach restaurants. Here, you can also find handicrafts, silk scarves, sarongs and toys.
