The headland rises from the azure waters, covered in a light scrub with a few spindly palm trees. Every evening crowds of tourists pour off buses to watch a spectacular sunset. Nearby a restaurant serves gourmet food against the dramatic backdrop, and a lighthouse provides panoramic views of the island and also houses several historical maritime artifacts.

  • Came here to see the sunset but it was way too crowded. We stayed a few minutes just in time to see the sunset and take a few photos but then had to rush back to our scooter in order to get ahead of t...  more »
  • See especially. Went down there too beauties have not found. Upstairs is very much Chinese. Parking is free of charge. Like the Temple of 1000 elephants made a wish.

  • BEAUTIFUL FOR SUNSET!!! It is pretty touristy though, so I would suggest getting there early (we arrived at 5:30 and had quality time alone before the crowds showed up). There are no benches or soft places to sit, but if you're used to off-roading and hiking then this is right up your alley!
  • Good place to spend an evening watching sunset. But does get crowded though with lots of tourists coming in many many numbers. If you don't mind the crowd then definitely you will enjoy the view from here. Good to spend an hour max as not much to do apart from watching sunset.
  • It's a nice place as an observation point. What I didn't like was that it's recommended on the net as a good place to shoot the sunrise but there are really no good spots to do so. There is a little hard to reach outcropping which is better for photos but do attempt it in the pre-Sun darkness. The views of the ocean with the little sailboats is lovely for photos.
  • Perfect sunset view you want to come visit every time when in Phuket. But lots of tourists, especially in-season periods. Worth it though, once you see the view through the lenses.
  • This was a larger area therefore It didn’t seem as crowded even during the busier times. Although I didn’t manage to have clear skies when I went so my experience wasn’t great. I can imagine the view to be spectacular given better weather. Nevertheless, it’s quite a nice place to go to for the views and a stroll.
