Not only the largest island in Thailand, this stunning ocean paradise is often considered to be one of the most picturesque destinations in all of South East Asia. Get a bird’s eye view of this offshore oasis with our guide to Phuket’s best viewpoints, from the peaks of Promthep Cape to the awe-inspiring vistas of Radar Hill.
More commonly referred to simply as Karon, this popular lookout offers uninterrupted views across the island’s west coast, with the three sparkling bays of Kata Noi Beach, Kata Beach and Karon Beach dotting the shoreline in the distance.
Just up the coast from Kata-Karon, this equally well-loved lookout gleans its name from the large white windmill that it shares its location with. Boasting panoramic views of the white sands of Ya Nui Beach and beyond, this west-facing viewpoint is a can’t-miss destination for visitors to Phuket.
Promthep Cape Viewpoint
Found on the far southwest tip of the island, Promthep Cape is one of Pukhet’s most popular viewpoints, particularly when it comes to capturing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Plan your visit for dusk and dawn and see the sky set ablaze with a beautiful spectrum of reds, oranges and yellows all year round.
For 360 degree views of Phuket’s east coast and the Andaman Sea, look no further than the spectacular lookout at Panwa Beach. Conveniently located less than 15 minutes from Radisson Blu Plaza Resort Phuket Panwa Beach, travellers can take in the exceptional views before unwinding in style in one of our three serene outdoor pools.
Big Buddha Viewpoint
An equally amazing sight when viewed from the ground, this tremendous, 45-metre Buddha statue is a great spot to catch a glimpse of the island’s south end. Scale the mountainside to reach the top and share the view of Chalong Bay with this beautiful, white-marble monument.
Radar Hill Viewpoint
More remote than the island’s more popular viewpoints like Promthep Cape and Kata-Karon, Radar Hill is well-worth the trek to the centre of south Phuket. The highest in altitude of all the island’s lookouts, travellers willing to make the trip to Radar Hill will be rewarded with unparalleled views across the island, including the picturesque Patong Beach.
Khao Rang Viewpoint
Those who want to see something other than sun, surf and sand should make a beeline for Khao Rang, where uninterrupted views of Phuket’s city centre are met with the lush greenery of the island’s undulating hillside. A well-designed lookout featuring multiple restaurants and a family-friendly park, visitors to this famous viewpoint can opt to spend an entire day soaking up the surrounds.
