Phrompthep cape or "Lam Prom Tep แหลมพรหมเทพ" is one of the unique view point at the south of Phuket island. The view of a grass hill that extends into the sea with palm trees and a sun sets into the sea can be seen in most postcards from Phuket. However, it will be very crowded before the sunset (from 5.30... More

The drive south from our house in Kathu is a challenge compounded by the idiots on motorcycles, each with an apparent death wish, and abrupt lane changes both of which are enough to infuriate the most generous of grand prix drivers. At the southern tip of Phuket and around the corner of Rawai Beach The Cape offers spectacular views and... More

Such a beautiful place, I was awed by the view of setting sun on an end less sea. I liked it so much so, that I visited the place again even on our 7 day trip to Phuket. It's the southern most tip of the island. Near by is a garden restaurant atop the hill, with the same view.. Don't... More

It was a great view. Got some great pictures. Even through there is a lot of other people. But it's a tourist place so not much of a surprise there. But it's a big area and room for everybody. There are a few stalls there where you can buy souvenirs and drinks. A lot of people bought coconut ice cream... More

...that will last forever. Clearly, a wonderful vista of the cape. And standing at a view afforded by the cliff which looks out over two other islands and the shore of one of its beach continuum, the attraction site is more than just a plain visiting spot. It's a remarkably astounding feat achieved by God for the marvel of man... More

I think views speak for themselves, they are great to see. What I found unique about this one was the elephant shrine which has a hundred or so elephants draped in flowers huddled in a circle. It seems quite mystical and gives an idea about the Thai culture and its attachment to elephants.

Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us the day we visited but it was still worth a look at the view and the light house. It is a perfect site to watch the sun go down but be warned there will be lots of other people there doing the same thing. It's Worth the trek down if you are... More

Very near from Naih Harn or Rawai. If you stay nearby, go up for a run and be rewarded with a nice view.
