Been here recently. Phromthep Cape is famous for sunset view. unfortunately we couldn't go during sunset. Even though this place has amazing view. I would recommend to all those visit Phuket!

Need to climb up some stairs to get to the top. The view from the top was amazing though. However, we were there in the late afternoon and felt really hot. Didn't stay long enough to watch the sunset.

Most amazing sunset. If you want to avoid trails of buses and tourists it is next to ho Monday-Wednesday. We went Wednesday night and so peaceful

Our timing was a little off, unable to stop at Phromthep Cape viewpoint at sunset, regardless it's still a great view. We were fortunate to be there on a clear day. Nothing can beat clear blue sky, turquoise waters and great scenery. Don't forget to...More

This is a nice place to view the sunset from. It has a very beautiful ocean view with some of Thailand's famous limestone cliffs in the foreground. Nearby there are a few shops that, in my opinion, had a better selection of the Thai dresses...More

Great view for romantic people. Best time for visiting is in the sunset when you can get great photos.

We rent a car, and drove to this Windmill Point. Absolutely breathtaking.. We arrived around 6 p.m, the sunset was on point. A must-go attraction if you come to Phuket I would say. You got to climb a bit (A bit hilly), but it worth...More

Is is a good option to visit this point in October ? as it would be raining, and the clouds might not be so clear for a good sunset view.

October is the beginning of the NorthEast Monsoon. Rains will be heavier and if there are storms, they tend to be more protracted (may last several days at a stretch). With the current climate change, winds in this region... More

We just came back from there. We rented a scooter and drove there. The roads are good. Just use the GPS on your cell phone and you should be fine. Well worth the trip. If you go for the sunset it is a trade off as there... More
