About Kamala Beach in Phuket Thailand
Kamala Beach isn’t a happening place for activities, but that is just how most visitors like it. Here you can relax, sunbathe, or read on the sandy shores of the beautiful sea.
There are a number of activities available, mainly water-related sports. Things are mild at Kamala Beach for most of the year, but there are occasionally dangerous waters from May to October, although not often. The calm waters make it an ideal place for swimming while the larger waves during the southwestern monsoon season offer some opportunities for surfing.
Watersports and Activities at Kamala Beach
There aren’t many activities going on around Kamala Beach that don’t have to do with the water. Snorkeling and scuba diving are both possible and watersports such as parasailing are available. You can also rent a longtail boat and cruise around the area.
When it comes to surfing, the northern end of Kamala is where you’ll want to investigate first.
The vendors on Kamala beach sell their goods by walking up and down the beach and speaking to visitors. The vendors are quite nice and won’t bother you if you smile and give a polite no in response to their offerings. If you would like to by something, it’s expected that you’ll bargain a little.
You can rent sunbeds through vendors who are mainly gathered in south Kamala Beach.
