Nestled between Patong and Surin Beach, Kamala Beach has the best of both worlds. At times, especially during high season, Kamala can be nearly as packed as Patong or Kata-Karon. But if you are lucky enough to visit the beach right before or right after high season, kamala beach has just the right mix of people, space and beach side bars to have a great time.
Of course, I may be a bit biased in this regard because I have lived in Kamala the moment I stepped foot on Phuket, but as the photos show, more often than not a kodak moment is waiting just around the corner.

Perhaps one of my favorite beaches in all of Phuket. Not only is it a hidden gem amongst the beautiful and more popular beaches, Laem Sing holds a special place in my heart for another reason. This beach was the very first one in Phuket that gave my virgin American eyes a glimpse of the European way of sunbathing. I learned quite quickly that the Europeans take the word bathe quite literally. Scattered throughout the beachgoers were many that were attempting to achieve that perfect, no-tan line golden color. Coming from the Northeast in the U.S., where it is only warm enough to sun "bathe" 4 months out of the year, the view I witnessed on Laem Sing Beach was note worthy. Unfortunately, there were also many men who chose to display all their glorious manhood in less than flattering Speedos. As a result, the camera stayed locked up in my motorbike.
