Kamala Beach

Phuket Beaches - West


The setting is superb, a fishing village amidst coconut trees fronting the beach. Like Surin, however, its bay is cursed by a bad undertow. There are small, low-budget bungalows on the northern end, and one large, modern resort hotel.

In 1933 Monthon Phuket was dissolved and Phuket became a province by itself. Old names of the island include Ko Thalang.
