Calm and peaceful. Good for family or kids. Better to relax than Pathong. Beautiful sunset and some nice restaurants

Fantastic scenery, naturally beautiful beach away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. I stayed at the Novotel Phuket Kamala beach hotel with direct access to the beach. Great hotel and a great location, perfect recommendation for all.
