If you want Quietness, Calmness and Relaxation, G1 Apartment at Kamala Beach is the place to be.
Located north of the infamous Patong beach, Kamala is a quiet Muslim community that many visitors find more appealing than its noisy neighbour. At one time, Kamala was just a fishing village, and it has still retained this atmosphere of relaxation along with its unspoiled beach.
A few resorts are clustered up in the headland, offering unparalleled sea views. Meanwhile, behind the beach, many local eateries and bars have sprouted up, providing a good selection for visitors. The beach itself is clean and pretty, despite the development of the area.
Accommodation is mainly in small guesthouses and the nightlife at Kamala is relatively quiet and low key. Patong beach is only about 10 minutes away for those who prefer some action.
Everything is laid on for you at this beach
Kamala is also home to Phuket’s only theme park, Phuket Fantasea. Although many people shy away from visiting a theme park while on holiday, this one is well worth a look. With a cast including 50 elephants, skilled performers and acrobats, and elaborate costumes and pyrotechnics, it provides a good evening out. The park also has a decent buffet along with games and shops to keep you preoccupied before and after the show.
Altogether this beach is a good place to stay if you want to be close to Patong but still be able to get a good night’s sleep when you aren’t out at the bars.
The beach itself isn’t as long as Patong, but substantial none-the-less and most of it not spoilt by resorts fronting the water. A road runs along part of the southern end of the beach, the middle section has a park and Tsunami memorial and the Northern section is completely wild with casuarina trees. In all Kamala has a pleasant villagey feel contrasting with the commercialism of Patong and Karon.
