    Came here on foot from Kata Beach, so do not do so))) Maps.me showed 1.8 km distance as a result 5 km, not so much, but most of the steep hill on the road without a shadow, roadsides and places where you can buy water. If you don't come here for the terminator, moped or taxi from Kata Beach price 300 baht. Itself an observation deck overlooks the Bay 3, where are the beaches of Karon, Kata Beach and Kata Noi beach. For inspection and photo takes 10 minutes, more here doing nothing. Free admission. There are benches in the shade shop with water and fruits are the taxi drivers. (On the way to the observation deck there are elephant farm, where for 60 Baht, you can feed the elephant bananas and pofotkatsja with him for 1000 baht to take a half-hour walk along the Ridge, where the view will appear on both coast of Phuket.) Go here costs only in clear, sunny weather. If you are not a connoisseur of panoramic views, you may visit Karon View Point you disappoint.

    The viewpoint is a small area allows visitors to take in great views of 3 bays: Karon, Kata and Kata Noi. It a clear day, the colour of water is beautiful. A quick 5 minutes stop is enough.  more »

    Amazing views -- can see for miles around. However few stray dogs there which is upsetting to see & need to pay to visit toilets which are very basic (bucket with ladle to flush toilet & can not wash hands even in cold water afterwards). Couple of shack shops which we didn't buy anything as didn't need too but couple of Australians bought 2 beers & where told 1 price & when waiting for their change were told it was a higher price!😀 I would say you only need 10/15 minutes here as once you've taken your photos & walked round, it's not very big you'll be done.

    The view is good, but narrow, as there is a lot of vegetation surrounding the place. Kata, Karon and Patong beaches are visible from the viewpoint. As a nice note there are 2 chill dogs apparently living at the viewpoint, that are happy to be petted by tourists.

    The view is amazing. And you can take picture with real life hawk for 100 baht

    Great view! Too many tourist and they don't look at the view because they don't have time. They have time just to make a couple photo. But anyway place is beautiful. If you have time just sit there and look at the view. Definitely recommend. It worth it!
