Phuket is one of the most beautiful islands with white sand beaches fringed by palm trees. But it is the spectacular scenic viewpoints on the island that truly encapsulates the charm of Phuket. From panoramic ocean views to alluring hill views from majestic heights, here are some of Phuket's most incredible viewpoints.  

1. Black Rock Viewpoint

None of the videos you’ve watched can prepare you for the gorgeousness of the famous beauty of the Black Rock Viewpoint. Hike your way up this challenging trail into the green and lush rainforest above Ao Sane Beach as the sun slowly rises, to enjoy stunning vistas of the south of Phuket. The view from the top is truly out of this world, with breathtaking views of the Nai Harn Beach, Phromthep Cape, and Koh Man. Black Rock Viewpoint showcases a glorious perspective of a huge black granite stone that presents itself as a massive landscape. 

2. Promthep Cape 

Promthep Cape is nestled on the southernmost point of the island and is an excellent location to view a picturesque sunset. Hike up the nature trail to wander the extensive sunset viewpoint that offers a sweeping view of Rawai Beach and look out for the charming hills sprawling in the south. As you finish your delightful journey, relax with some chilled beer and sample some of the goods from stalls selling beachwear, shawls, and sarongs.

3. Big Buddha

Made of white Burmese marble, the Big Buddha that sits atop the Nakkerd hills located between Chalong and Kata is a favorite viewpoint location amongst the visitors for the 360-degree panoramic view that it offers of Phuket Town, Kata Beach, and Chalong Bay. It brings you a spiritual experience with mesmerizing views during the day and as the evening draws to a close, the sky is paletted with the soothing colors of the setting sun. Watch the impressive sunset in peace and sway to the tunes of soft dharma music.

4. Radar Hill Viewpoint

Radar Hill has the longest hiking route and is the highest viewing point in Phuket that commands a striking view of the island. Challenge yourself by hiking the trails of the hill that twist along the way while getting a birds-eye view of the whole area. Discover breathtaking vistas of Phuket up close along with the view of Chalong Bay and the alluring Bang Wad Reservoir. To reach the top of the hill, take a long adventurous hike that entails some steep ascents and pass through ChaoFa West Road, where you have a chance to greet one of the oldest living men in the world, the famous monk Luang Pu Suph. 

5. Windmill Viewpoint 

Underneath pastel-hued skies, nestled on the hill above Nai Harn Beach, stand a collection of white wind turbines that generate power for Phuket. At the top of the hill, you can witness the beauty of the turquoise Andaman Sea, white sands, and fishermen on seasonal boats as the sun goes down. People usually visit this viewpoint after spending a relaxing day at the beach to enjoy a drink from the local vendors as they unwind in the mellow lights of the setting sun. A walk along the golden grass takes you to yet another stunning place from where you can view other islands and the Nai Harn Beach. This is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the country, so don’t miss it!
