Top Things To Do & Places To Visit in Kamala Beach

Though Kamala Beach is known for its sleepy location, there’s still plenty to do and see. Take advantage of one of these day tours or shows, to get the true experience of what it means to live in Kamala Beach.

Rafting and Elephant Trekking
One of the most popular activities in Kamal Beach is boating, and this tour not only takes you by vessel through some of the most beautiful wildlife in Phuket, it highlights the animal kingdom too. Taking guests through Phang Nga Province’s Tone Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary, visitors can hop on a whitewater raft and get up close and personal with elephants in the jungle.

Professional guides ensure the safety of all guests and give a little history and background on the area. Once everyone has gotten their fill of surf and turf, guides will cook the group an authentic Thai lunch at a jungle camp. After lunch, guests can take a dip in the local pond and take in the beauty of the local waterfall.

Tour includes all transportation to and from the river, jungle and campsite, as well as a free hotel transfer.

June Bahtra Cruise
For those who are looking for a more relaxing watery tour, the June Bahtra Cruise takes visitors through the calm waters of PHang Nga Bay on a traditional Chinese Junk boat. Guests can sit back and relax on overstuffed deck cushions while they sail slowly along. The boat’s sun canopy keeps rain, harsh sunrays and the occasional cloud of one’s sight.

The boat will dock at Sea Gypsy Village, a sleepy village propped up in the water on stilts. It will also dock at James Bond Island for sightseeing and shopping. After boarding, guests can enjoy a delicious meal, served right on the boat and catch breathtaking views of the sunset.

Phuket Fantasea Show
Much like Cirque du Soleil, Phuket Fantasea Show offers nonstop entertainment in the round of a circus tent. Unlike Cirque du Soleil, this experience extends far beyond the show. Enclosed in the tent is carnival village full of games, shopping and handmade items. A restaurant within the tent’s confines offers a Thai buffet, loaded with local favorites.

When show time approaches, guests can take their seats and feast their eyes on a show that would make Las Vegas jealous. Special effects and stunts wow and amaze the audience. The show was designed to show visitors the local culture and history in one magical, jaw-dropping setting.

Krabi Highlights by Speedboat
Once you’ve seen the area by junk boat and whitewater raft, watch it whiz by from a speedboat. Visit local islands and explore limestone rock formations. Take a knee on beautiful, untouched beaches. The best part about this tour is that visitors can check out several island on one day trip. If a relaxing day in the sun isn’t in your itinerary, take advantage of the clear waters, and discover the islands by snorkeling.

This tour also includes a Thai lunch with specialties like chicken, seafood and veggie selections. Lunch takes place on Railay Bay, located on the mainland—though the area is so remote, it feels like it could be on a desert island. Guests will also get the opportunity to see Hong Island.
