If you stay in a resort off the beach it's good. There is a good choice of bars and restaurants too. It did not seem as awe inspiring as ko phi phi Don or ko lanta.

Nice but beach is a bit dirty and locals doesn’t bother cleaning. Jet skis, paddle boards and chairs for rent. Cold beer from locals and massages available

In September this beach was pretty much quiet. The visitors are mainly in Patong and so if you a family or prefer something more laid back then, Kamala beach is where you should stay and visit.

Beautiful beach but alot of garbage and no one is picking it up. There some areas on the beach that you can still rent beach chairs, go for massages and get food and drinks. Quiet compared to other beaches

Hi Rajat. The closest town u can go to Kamala town which is less crowded the Patong area. U can actually rent a motorbike which is quite cheap and useful for your travel around.

Sorry to tell you but it is a long way away so I would recommend a tuk tuk. Hope that helps.
