  • It's just 10-15 mins away from Karon area. I took a tuk-tuk from Karon beach area...to and fro, 700 bahts. Driver waits till you finish your photo taking (around 30 mins). It's set on a hilly side, so...  more »

  • Aerial view of beaches from this point. View point is picturesque and is beautiful. Surrounded by lush green trees, but very Hot. There are lots of beautiful places in Phuket, thus should be visited if there is enough time left after visiting islands, coral beaches etc. Avg spend time is half an hour.
  • If you are a morning person, I'd strongly advice you to go in the morning before most people get there , it's really difficult to take take pictures with everyone on your way, so being there earlier gives you enough photo time. It's a beautiful, peaceful and breath taking view. The landscape is a combination of trees and ocean water. Its worth it
  • The view point gives you an amazing view of Kata Noi, Kata and Karon beaches to the North. But nothing else. Went there to watch sunset but was disappointed that the view to east or south are blocked by trees. So don't go here for the sunset! Toilet is payable. If you are there and want to watch sunset, there is a road next to it and it goes downhill where there is a restaurant called Heaven. It has balcony that can give you the right spot for sunset. Obviously you need to consume there to enjoy the view. (we did not go in at the end)
  • The views are good, but unidirectional, just looking north across the beaches of Kata, Karon on towards Patong. There are other viewpoints around the island I would rate higher because they give a broader view. I don't like to see the captive sea eagles forced to pose to tourists for photos to earn money for their owners, and hope others will not support this business by paying for a photo with these beautiful birds.
  • Awesome location to catch view of Karon Beach and Kata Beach. The view is combination of lush green trees and crystal blue sea water. Unfortuantely I went on a day of hazy weather. In terms of facilities, nothing much here except the view point. The drive to this point is beautiful through winding roads.
