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.

After the Tsunami, By February 2005 many damaged and most undamaged resorts were back in business, and throughout 2005 life slowly returned to normal for the people of Phuket. Following strenuous recovery programs, there is no remaining tsunami damage other than at the most remote beaches.
