  • It is not an easy way down, but we found that it was worth it, even though there is not much to see, other then the ocean, and some nice cliffs. The view is good.  more »
  • A day trip is during the rainy fit but still refreshing, beautiful corner lot, but be careful the danger of slipping and agree to it?

  • Place gets quite crowded, but a lot of tourist and locals come here to see the sunset. There is some parking around and a lot of tourist bus. Some locals have carts that sell food in the vicinity. Off the main roads there is a track which you can walk off and it leads towards the most southern point. You can see a lot of people that go there. Its worth the walk for the view. Many people are sitting on the ledges and waiting for the sunset.
  • Fantastic place and nice view. The viewpoint can get crowded, because lots of tourist buses full of Chinese and Russians stop here, but they all avoid going down to the tip of the cape, where the view is so much better. I stayed for an hour at the tip all alone.
  • Great place with great view. Picture Perfect. A must visit place for people who love to click nature and Sunset views. Good breeze across, just too romantic place.
  • Superb view of the Cape, can be very busy though, but there is loads of space. There is also a little walk down to a little section that juts out into the ocean with a great view of both sides, it's a little sandy and rocky though.
  • Very beautiful and stunning scenery. Li'l bit crowded specially sunset. You should go here with your significant other and try to go down but be careful. Yolo! :)) best place to watch sunset 😍

Where to stay in Rawai

A long-established beach resort, Rawai offers eclectic sleeping options along the eastern coast of the peninsula. Head right up to the beach for attractively designed resort hotels, rental condominiums, and spa hotels, charging relatively high prices for their extensive views and easy access to beaches and boat tours. Away from the coastline you can find similar resort-style accommodations, with lower prices and a little more privacy. Other budget-friendly options include rental bungalows and basic hotels.
