Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket Town

4.7
Nestled between two beaches, Windmill Viewpoint remains a lesser-known spot with sweeping western views over the verdant coastline, Cape Phromthep, and the island of Koh Man. Named for the tall windmills gracing the top of the lookout, this perch attracts model-airplane enthusiasts by day and a pleasantly small crowd for sunset. Amenities are few, save an occasional vendor selling drinks or jewelry. If you're driving here for one of the spectacular sunsets, note that the parking lot closes just after the sun goes down, so consider leaving the car outside the lot to enjoy the last of the day's rays stress-free.

    Trails go down Nai Harn Beach from the Phromthep Cape way left to go. Phromthep Cape tourists are many, but here are tourists not coming loose can be seen.

    A must visit place (drive or ride) for the Southern part of Phuket. Away from the typical tourists' spots. Windy and breathtaking view of the surroundings. Thumbs up for maintaining the area well.

    Great view, but nothing much more than that to do. Not enough place to sit around. They have a place to park a car there. A big non Functional Windmill facing the sea. A small shop selling Fruits and drinks.

    Stunning view of the land and turquoise-blue waters below. A few Thai vendors are found selling cold drinks and there is an open building structure providing shade from the sun and seats to enjoy the view.

    I'm sure that 100% will give great feed back for this view point because it's truth. I came there on July ( low season in Phuket) & really strong wind . The atmosphere is still good enough to enjoy

    Great little lookout. Beautiful views. We biked up the lookout and it was tiring but absolutely worth it.
