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.

The Sirinat National Park on the northwestern coast was established in 1981 and protects an area of 90 square kilometres (35sqmi) (68 kilometres (42mi) marine area), including the Nai Yang beach where sea turtles lay their eggs.
