Kamala is a Muslim fishing village north of Patong. Tourist development on the beach much of which
is covered by a Muslim graveyard and a police outpost has been slow in coming. Buffalo herds still
come down to the beach to cool off in the afternoon. The beach is beautiful and about 2 kms. in length.
There are accommodations ranging from guesthouse to international class, and a number of small Thai
restaurants specializing in seafood for the tourist. Kamala is the perfect place to get away from it all and
has little to offer in the way of entertainment for that go across the mountains to Patong. Regular bus service
to and from Phuket Town during daytime; tuk-tuk service available to Patong, 5 kms. away on the new road.
