  • This is one busy spot. Getting there is not hard, but finding parking will be. Solution is renting a driver, going on a day tour or motor bike it. From this point you seeKaron Patong and kata beaches....  more »
  • This is a beautiful view, although unless you are staying in the Karon area, it takes a while to get there. Once at the viewpoint, there is really not much to do other than take a look at the view and...  more »
  • If you go on the bike, or have their own rental car so it is worth staying for. Is, however, no reason to go expensive tuk tuk, taxi just to see the view point.

  • So you can actually see the big three beaches from here. It is quite a view to drive to. The drive is also super fun. The roads are quite up and down and you can manage it on your rented two wheeler. Carry 10 baht coins then you can use the binoculars provided there. There is also this women with a vulture or eagle who lets you keep the bird on your hand and click picture for a small amount. I think you can try that too.
  • To be honest, I’m not sure what was amazing about this view point. It’s a pretty small area so it can get a bit crowded and the views are nice of course but nothing to go crazy over. Definitely try to go when it’s less busy, but then the view probably isn’t going to be as great as say, sun set.
  • A place where you can see the breathtaking view of Phuket's beaches in one eyesight. I came here at noon where the sun is on his best performance. People said that we should come here in early morning or in the afternoon to see the real beauty. Maybe next time for me.
  • This viewpoint was incredible. It offers a very unique view of 3 of Phuket's west coast beaches (Karon, Kata and Kata Noi) in a vertical line. Besides the 3 beaches, you can also see the Big Buddha on the hill. Unfortunately, there is no public transport to go there, You either have your own transport (car/motorbike). It is definitely worth a visit and no entrance fee, you need to make sure you go on a good day though, so you get the sun reflecting the light blue sea. The views are 360 degrees and will amaze you.
  • Cool viewpoint. You can see Kata and Karon Beach from there. You can also take picture with an eagle when you're at the viewpoint. Cool place for photos.. Overlooking the Western side of phuket.
