Kalim is a small village along the Kalim beach in the southwest of Phuket, just north of Patong.
Some of the finest dining venues in Phuket are located in this area, such as Acqua and White Box. Specially Acqua which is a highly rated restaurant for cuisine, atmosphere as well as service and its worldwide known chef (Italian and international food).
The beach is not very good for swimming because of the number of stones, but is good for snorkeling and surfing (in low season) during high tide.
Another activity is also available in Kalim: Zorbing at Rollerball. Probably the most funny thing to do in Phuket!
There is also a small street food market with seven food stalls in the parking space along the beach where they sell noodle soup and other Thai/Muslim dishes.
