Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket Town

4.7
#5 of 13 in Sightseeing in Phuket Town
Lookout Tourist Spot
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. Arrange to visit Windmill Viewpoint and other attractions in Phuket Town using our Phuket Town itinerary planner.

  • A view point and not really much more can say. Has a toilet and view is worth the trip. On a busy day car park somewhat crowded!  more »
  • Not too much to do there but if you are there for the view then you will get a nice one for sure. Recommended if you are in Chalong.  more »
  • The drive is all worth it if you have your own car. The viewpoint is beautiful for a short drop by. Great for sunset too  more »

  • 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.
  • Really great views from here and wasn't too too busy.
