  • Must visit place in Phuket, amazing sunset view. If possible avoid government holidays because many people from nearby places.

  • Amazing Views of the islands and coast of Phuket. We went several times, both when sunny and cloudy and the different aspects of the view did not disappoint. Highly recommend going.

  • Great place to visit for those who love ocean views as well as a little trek. The trek is about 10min from start to the southern most point. It isn’t too difficult a trek (had a 5-month pregnant lady completed it in sandals and saw a few elderly ladies complete it too). It’s possible to do it with slippers, but it’s probably better to wear better footwear. Toilets here are relatively clean. No admission fee required.
  • Gorgeous views on the southern end of Phuket. This is the ideal place to enjoy a sunset. However, it is not a secluded place for peace and quiet if you spend time in the most highly trafficked spot. Tourist buses arrive in throngs to take in the sunset with you. If you do not mind some hustle and bustle along with jaw-dropping views, this is for you. Note; a less mesmerizing but still beautiful sunset with a similar view awaits via a quiet little retreat a few minutes away from here. Expats, locals, or your willingness to explore will point the way.
