Phuket View Points
Phuket has several spectacular view points from which it is possible to enjoy sunsets, panoramic and 360° degree views of the island, islands of lush green vegetation with sandy bays and rocky promontories and beyond to the Andaman Sea. On clear days, the Phi Phi Islands can be seen.
Cape Phromthep, a headland at the southwest of the island, has long been the favourite place to watch sunsets on Phuket with both locals and tourists attracted to the stunning views of local islands and the sea beyond. There is a shrine dedicated to Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, whom the cape is named after and the Golden Jubilee Lighthouse, which contains a small nautical museum.
The Windmill Viewpoint sits on a hill and overlooks Ya Nui Beach. It's located between Nai Harn Beach and Cape Phromthep. The viewpoint offers superb views of Yanui Beach, the island of Koh Man, the Andaman Sea and passing boats. Paragliders favour the spot for its quietness, winds - and obviously the views. It's a quiet place with a sala and occasionally, there's a drink vendor there.
Khao Kad View Point Tower on Cape Panwa offers stunning 360° views of Phuket Island, the south and Chalong Bay with its luxury yachts and local fishing boats. Climb the tower with its staircase of 138 steps for the birds eye view.
Khao Rang in Phuket City has spectacular views of the town and surrounding areas with the islands with the sea forming a perfect backdrop. A statue of Phuket's favourite governor, Phraya Ratsadanupradit Mahisornpakdi, is at the highest point. The statue was built by Chinese businessmen to commemorate governor.
From Karon Viewpoint, the bays of Kata Noi, Kata and Karon and Poo Island can be seen. There is a large public sala, or shelter and several vendors sell food, drinks, and souvenirs in the area. The viewpoint is between Kata and Nai Harn Beach.
