Looking down the central part of the west coast of Phuket, the view incorporates a line of three beaches as well as offshore islands. Best seen on a sunny clear day, the built-up area of Patong is also clearly visible.
If you are passing by this lookout as you head to the south of the island, it is definitely worth a stop, but I wouldn't pay a taxi or tuktuk to take you here as a specific destination. If you have a rental car, there is a free carpark off the busy mountain road.
There are usually vendors of various description around the lookout. Some have animals (monkeys, eagles) with whom you can be pictured. A warning that we were pulled aside by a woman who claimed to be doing market research for Phuket Tourism, but it is a scam as they want to know where you are staying and a room number! Don't participate!

Superb view of the 3 bays! Especially if you're a keen photographer!
Just be aware of the bus loads of fellow visitors, can get a bit hectic, jostling for a photo spot!
