5 miles from Patong Bay
A pretty bay with several hotels and plenty of restaurants ashore and a busy village atmosphere on the south end of the beach. The bay is easily recognised from seaward by the large structures of the Phuket Fantasea Park and the developments on the southern hill.
North onshore, past the two high-end beach clubs Café Del Mar and HQ, are Twin Palms Montazure Phuket, Novotel Kamala and the Intercontinental Hotel, comprising villas, condominiums hotel accommodation and beachfront restaurants.
Care should be taken when coming into the bay from the south to avoid the rocky patch 300 metres off the headland. Anchor anywhere well out in the bay in 6-8 metres on a sandy bottom.
