Nice little beach town. After Patong a real pleasure to walk without the massage ladies being so aggressive. Has a beach strip of bars/restaurants just a few yards in from where the government demolished places that were truly on the beach. Plenty of bars and...More

If you looking for quietness and wanting to avoid the hustle and bustle of Patong beach than Kamala is your answer. Not much of beach activities compared to Patong but quiet. Be sure to get an umbrella and you can easily rent a beach chair.

If you like a busy, smelly, noisy atmosphere - Kamala beach is the right place for you! Rubbish towards the north and south of the beach, plastic bags & 2 sewerage inlets north and south flowing into the ocean. Truly nauseating and dissapointing!

Very congested and parts are dirty. Beach is ok but overated, away from the water could do with a good clean up but what actually is done is minimal.

The Kamala beach is stunningly beautiful. The sea which gently kisses the golden sand is very calming. There are plenty of places to eat and lots of shade . If you like taking photographs, you will be spoilt for choice here.

Can't quite remember but will ask my partner. I can say that there is plenty of choice if you book on arrival in the morning, checking in later.
