Beaches in Phuket

Kamala Beach
Kamala Beach is located in Kamala Bay about 20 minutes north of Patong Beach. Over recent years the beach has matured into a resort meeting all the requirements of the modern tourist, but has not lost its original identity. Kamala Beach is substantially more relaxed than some of the other areas in Phuket. It is also a lot quieter.

A number of hotels and guesthouses sit along the road leading to the beach and provide accommodation that meets any budget. A number of stalls sell fresh food at very reasonable prices meaning you can pick at something all day if you like! For those looking for great views, Khao Phanthurat is about 30 meters above sea level and from the top you can get an excellent perspective of Kamala's 2.5 kilometer long 'half moon' of a bay. Phuket FantaSea is located to the north of the beach.

How to get there: Kamala Beach is 25 kilometers from Phuket town and Songtaews leave for the area on a regular basis.

Karon Beach
Karon Beach is another exquisite Phuket beach. This is pretty much a stereotypical image of paradise - long beach, sand dunes, and palm trees alongside crystal clear water! Surprisingly, Karon Beach offers even more... Unlike some of the other beaches on the island, Karon is not overdeveloped. Over the last few years a number of hotels and restaurants have emerged, but there are still large areas of open land that have not been built on. To make life simple, there is a paved walkway with lighting that runs parallel to the beach and gives easy access to the hotels behind. The whole thing gives the beach a uniquely pleasant 'homely' feel. The usual bars, souvenir shops and tailors that might appear elsewhere have been kept away from the beachfront and assigned to the road coming inwards from the main road. This has become a pretty lively area with trendy bars competing with restaurants offering a variety of cuisines.

Karon is one of the few beaches where weather conditions permit surfing and great breakers come to shore from June to September. You really should be an experienced surfer to try these waves, but surfboards are available for hire from the beach anyway!

How to get there: Songtaews run from Ranong Road in Phuket town to Karon Beach on a regular basis.

Rawai Beach
The northern part of Rawai is known as Hat Mittraphap, while the southern section has a village and port called Laem Ka. Rawai is located at the southern tip of Phuket. It is much less touristy than nearby Kata and Patong beaches and an excellent place to experience some real Thai culture. This palm-fringed beach is best known for sea gypsies, a formerly nomadic fishing minority believed to be of Malanesian descent.

Rawai is a beautiful part of Phuket that is not over crowded with resorts and tourists. Seaside dining is very popular here.

How to get there: From Phuket Town follow the 4021 road south to Chalong Circle then take the 4024 road south from Chalong Circle.

Surin Beach
Surin Beach is on the west coast of Phuket, located North of Laem Singh Beach and South of Pansea Beach. Surin Beach still has a small village atmosphere, but this is gradually changing as more and more major housing developments and hotel projects get underway. The beach itself has clear water and beautiful white sand, and is lined with tall casuarina trees and small Thai style restaurants.

How to get there: From Patong Beach, drive to north along the coast road until passing Laem Singh. Then turn left at a three-way intersection to the beach.
