Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket Town

(130+ reviews on the web)
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.

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