Where to Eat in Kamala?

There is a vast choice of restaurants in Kamala Beach and travellers will have no problem finding one for lunch, dinner or even breakfast. Geographically, Kamala is divided into three areas: the beachfront is the most attractive, with many affordable restaurants lined under coconut trees and facing the sea. The first road that runs parallel to the beach offers a few restaurants as well, and the large main road that passes in the back of Kamala has a lot of restaurants and long-established bars. A fourth area would be on the road that connects the main beach of Kamala to the nearby Rayee Beach, where you’ll find Cape Sienna and Hyatt Regency.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
