Holidays To Kalim

Surf’s up, mate! On the easy-going island of Phuket, the cosy neighbourhood around Kalim Beach is a haven for wave-charging champs. 

Spend your Kalim holiday surfing and snorkelling in the bay by day and dining at waterfront restaurants by night. On the west coast of Phuket, Thailand, you’ll find gorgeous stretches of sparkling sand, local Thai flavour and some of the island’s top sights. So scoop up some Kalim deals and pack your bathers and can-do-nothing attitude for a getaway you won’t forget!

Things to Do in Kalim

You can certainly spend Kalim holidays in the warm, blue water without venturing far from your hotel and a sunbrella. Many consider Kalim the best surfing spot in Phuket, if not in all of Thailand, so you’re sure to catch a break or two…or five. The snorkelling from this secluded section of the bay is also top-reef, and if you’re new to diving, no worries! There are several classes for first-timers who are just getting their feet wet. If you want to sunbathe and swim, Kalim Beach might be too rocky for your bare feet, but you’ll be just a few km north of popular Patong Beach—great for perfecting your tan lines and people-watching. Speaking of tan lines, pick up one of our Kalim car hire options and drive out to Tiger Kingdom in Kathu, east of Kalim. While there, you can hang with some cool, striped cats who have achieved a perfect golden hue. Wanna monkey around? Swing through the trees at the Flying Hanuman suspension bridge and adventure course, also in Kathu.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Sure, your holiday attire involves bathers, sunnies and sandals, but when you get back home, you wanna look smart. In Kalim, you’ll find plenty professional tailors ready to whip you up affordable custom suiting and dresses to take back to your workaday life. If you want a new wardrobe without breaking the bank, book one of our Kalim holiday packages before you shop. OK, enough about work. Keep it casual with Phuket locals at Kalim’s own street market, a walkable mix of food vendors and craftsmen.

Don’t be fooled by Kalim’s outdoorsy vibes. The dining in this neighbourhood is elegant and cool as a cucumber—or oysters on the half-shell as the case may be. Whether you wine and dine or slurp street eats, Phuket’s cuisine is everything you’d hope Thai food with a seaside spin would be—noodles, curries, coconut concoctions, all with fresh fish and tropical touches. Yum.

The best bit about staying in Kalim is your proximity to colourful, high-energy nightlife with the added chill factor of a quieter home base. Stay around Kalim for low-key beach bashes, or float back to Patong Beach and hit up Bangla Road for a dusk-to-dawn club scene. Just look for the neon glow.

Let’s do this, traveller. Book one of the Phuket holidays you’ve been dreaming about and save big with sweet deals on accommodation and flights. Wotif’s Kalim packages promise laidback beach vibes, crashing waves and delicious dishes. Book today and get your float on!
