Kalim beach (Kalim Beach) continues coast of Phuket North of Patong, almost without interrupting the strip of beaches and infrastructure (Kalim on the island map). Both beaches are separated by just small rocks on the shore, while areas seamlessly into one another completely unnoticed.

Directly on the beach of Kalim beach here draws on a solid C grade. On the one hand it is much more deserted neighboring Patong, you can even say a little clearer. But throughout, one kilometre strip of sand is interrupted by stone heaps, while she was still very narrow. During high tides here, sometimes even no place to sit, because the water comes close to the stones or artificial dam. For bathing the beach is really bad. So, in the South near Patong under water large sharp stones, the depth is very sharp. And in the North (this part of the beach further away from Patong) the slope of the bottom is not as sharp, but swim is still not very comfortable because it is littered with small stones. Entertainment on the beach no even include at a minimum: a small number of loungers can be found only in the southern part. No, and quite spoils the picture a road and a stone dam, extending almost from the water's edge.

The only advantage of Kalima is its silence. As the beach itself is uncrowded, and the area is very quiet, although located close to the entertainment center of the island. One has only to drive or walk one kilometer from Kalima towards Patong, but are in the bustling centre party and the developed area of the island. And it is perfect for those who do not want to ingest exhaust fumes of the big roads and a daily pleasure to endure bustle and noise, and at the same time, you'll be near the party, to be able at any time to get there in just 5 minutes taxi ride or 15 minute walk.

The infrastructure here is not well developed. For money exchange, shopping, search, travel agencies or rent will have to go to a neighboring district. Minimarkets products there is, cafes are available. In the evenings the promenade also has an excellent food court under the open sky.

To get to Kalim as simple as Patong, and on the same transport. From Phuket airport by taxi the trip will cost 650 baht. If you decide to use public transport, you first have to get from the airport to the old bus station in the centre of Phuket town, and there catch the bus to Patong. But to get off the bus should be used: T-shaped intersection of Phra Barami Road and Rat-u-Thit (Second road). From there to Kalima on the doorstep, 10 minutes on foot. If you want the bus to get from Kalima in Phuket town, you need to catch the bus at the intersection of Phra Barami Road and the road along the beach Thaweewong Road (Beach Road), even closer. The route to the intercity bus station of Phuket is done in a similar way, with a stopover in Phuket town. Read more about Phuket bus station here, and about public transportation here.

Hotels close to the beach quite a bit, and cheap guesthouses did not find. But there are hotels with its territory and the gorgeous pools with views of the ocean. If you decide to stay, it is better to book accommodation in advance. And it is not necessary when choosing a hotel to depart too far North (up the map), because the beach is stretching out all over the district.

Summing up about the Kalima, we can say that the beach here is so-so, no entertainment, poor infrastructure and weak. But it is quiet and entertainment, and infrastructure, more extensive and convenient beach can be found on the adjacent beach, reachable even on foot. Well, if you have the priority of a beach holiday in a clean beautiful beach, it is best to look for another place.
