Kamala Beach is a popular west coast town for tourists and some of the expat community. The beach is within a moderately deep-set bay and the community is completely surrounded by tall jungle covered hills. There are a full range of accommodations from five-star hotels to small inexpensive guest houses. One of the most popular theme shows, Phuket FantaSea is in Kamala. There are plenty of great local restaurants serving Thai local foods along with many European cuisine choices.
