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.

  • We stopped at the observation deck on the way to the beach Yana. Kind of indescribable beauty. On the territory of all encounters in the form of a servant and politely bade farewell to tales in one side of the machine to another. There is parking for both cars and bikes. There is a large gazebo on the karaju. Techie will assess the lone wind turbine and solar panels from the roof. To 6 pm going to enough wanting to watch the sunset, but there is enough space. There is a small tent with refreshments and toilet.

  • Simply breathtaking view! Mother's nature at her best must stay till evening to see the beautiful sunset at the horizon if sky is not too cloudy & if you are thirsty or need fruit juices a stall is just nearby.. If mother nature calls toilets are available Good photo opportunity....
  • Beautiful viewpoint. They've made a decent sized car park now so you don't need to hurry-hurry-take-picture while you're blocking the road! What is most surprising is that it's FREE! Very unusual for Phuket! There is also a toilet and a kiosk selling fresh fruit and refreshments.
  • It’s pretty.... every place is pretty here. Lol don’t worry about going to find the perfect place for photos. You won’t go wrong anyplace you go. Just get on a scooter and drive. There’s a picture perfect viewpoint around every corner.
  • This is a good place to take a break from driving. Just enjoy the ocean view from the high pt. Nothing to do there...just enjoy the wonderful sea breeze and view.
  • You really should consider this viewpoint if you come to phuket. The view is fantastic. The windmill make this viewpoint more attractive. Great place to take photos. If you drive here, there is parking slot at the top for free. Make sure you don't miss this! I totally like this place!
