Unlike the more upscale enclaves to the north, Kamala Beach has some reasonably priced accommodations that attract longer stay visitors as is a good launch pad for the rest of the island, as it retains its calm and quiet. The area, a curving strip of coral sand embraced by coconut palms south of Bang Thao, suffered some of the worst destruction on Phuket during the 2004 tsunami and for those interested there are still many local taxi drivers and shop owners who can give personal accounts.
