On the western shoreline of the Thai island of Phuket is the wonderfully memorable resort of Kamala Beach. Many travellers opt for a Kamala Beach holiday due to the fact that they can enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the world without having to fight the tourist masses to get a glimpse. Ideally, a Kamala Beach holiday also guarantees tranquillity, relaxation and a handful of activities to fill up those days and nights before you have to return home.
The real emphasis of a Kamala Beach holiday is simply to relax, unwind and take in some of the most beautiful surroundings to be found in Thailand. For this reason, visitors will not find an abundance of activities on offer, certainly not of the physically punishing kind. The beach is one of the biggest draws of the resort which provides opportunities for peaceful sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling, fishing and surfing.
If you can prise yourself away from your relaxing Kamala Beach holiday rental house to explore the rest of Phuket, then a visit to Phuket City on the eastern side of the island is a must. This administrative part of the island is often overlooked by visitors who come for the sun, sand and serenity; but there is much to be seen in Phuket City, particularly if you want to learn more about the island. The best part of Phuket City is the Old Town area which is rich in history. The old part of Phuket has a lot of old, interesting buildings, many of which are mansions built during the tin boom-time on the island. There are also plenty of older shrines and temples dotted throughout the city, both Chinese and Buddhist. Visitors will find that Phuket also has a great number of museums and the interesting, fun Monkey Hill just on the outskirts.
Weather plays an important part in any holiday and a Kamala Beach holiday is no exception to that rule! Luckily, travellers who decide to book a fantastic Kamala Beach holiday rental house will find that they will be able to enjoy a wonderful Tropical climate. This means that the area enjoys hot temperatures throughout the year reaching as high as 32 degrees Celsius. There is also a rainy season on the island of Phuket which generally lasts from May until October, during which the majority of the annual 91 inches of rainfall occurs.
If all of the details above have swayed you into going on a Kamala Beach holiday then you will discover that it is very simple and quick to get to the resort. Travellers can fly from major UK airports such as Heathrow (LHR), Southampton(SOU), Belfast (BFS), Edinburgh (EDI) and Newcastle(NCL) into Phuket International Airport (HKT), which is only half an hour’s journey away from Kamala Beach. Air operators that offer frequent, affordable flights to Phuket include Bangkok Airways, British Airways, Qatar Airways, KLM and Malaysia Airlines.
