There are a few good restaurants in town, and there's excellent seafood at the night market (try the fish cakes with sweet chili sauce), which also sells clothes, accessories and souvenirs.

Dino Park Mini Golf
Kamala beach is unremarkable but endearing, particularly to pensioners who return here year after year for the beach's more reserved ambience. Kamala can get cramped during the day and offers numerous accommodation and dining options, but if you're staying, don't expect a lively nightlife. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: swimming.
South of Kata Beach the road cuts inland across the hills before it drops into yet another beautiful bay, Nai Harn. On the north side of the bay is the gleaming white Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club. On the south side is a nice little beach, removed for now from the tailors and cheap restaurants that have sprung up at the entrance to the Royal Meridien.
Dino Park Mini Golf
The Flintstones-style buildings along the road in central Karon village belong to Dino Park Mini Golf. Street-side are a dinosaur-theme bar and restaurant, but the real fun is inside: 18 holes of miniature golf, featuring a swamp, a lava cave, and a real live Tyrannasaurus Rex (well, the kids will think so!). Afterward, grab a bite at the restaurant and get your orders taken by Fred and Wilma.
