The beach is perfect for surfers during the low season from May to November when waves are high, or for swimmers when the water is calm in the high season. Its pristine stretch of soft, white sand makes Kamala excellent for a day out at the beach any time of the year when the sun is shining. A coral reef at the north end of the beach is a superb spot for snorkelling, while if you hire a kayak you can venture further around the sea and surrounding rocks.The town is also home to the Kamala Tsunami Monument where each year on the anniversary of the tragedy, memorial ceremonies are held in commemoration of the natural disaster, with prayer services and wreaths laid in remembrance. This site is worth visiting at any time of the year and you should bring your camera along for some photo opportunities of the memorial, as well as the surrounding area. If you fancy discovering what’s underneath the water’s surface, diving is also available from Kamala Beach, which is home to several dive shops. Whether you’re a first timer or an experienced diver there are plenty of sites that suit all skill levels. Koh Weo are two small islands surrounded by coral with depths of between 4 and 20 metres making it ideal for beginners and those more accomplished. Other nearby dive sites include Laem Son, Nakala Reef and Tai Pau.
