It was definitely worth the short drive to this spot as the view is lovely overlooking the beautiful shoreline.

The viewpoint is good and you get really good shots of the island. tip is to do it off peak hours avoid sunset and go for sunrise :)

Staying in patong, we decided to grab a car and driver for a small fee (flate rate, you negotiate) to take us along the ocean road to see karon, karta and karta noi along the way to the View point, and then on to gorgeous Nai Harn beach for swimming and lunch. This view point lookout is perched high on top of a headland with views down to Karta noi and further on in nearly every direction up and down the coast and out to sea. Absolutely stunning views from the available 300 degrees of open ocean and coastline vista. Make sure you take your camera with you and a cool drink or two. Get your driver to stop there for at least a half hour or more. Take it all in and try and familiarize yourself with the geography, if you cant, ask your driver , he will know the lay of the land and all the landmarks, he would have been there 1000 times already and will know everything !! This view point is only about 15/20 minutes drive south of patong beach. if you get your driver to carry on further south from the view point, you will drive past many awesome sea views and tropical jungle. Be sure to look out for the elephants on roadside properties just minutes past the view point driving to the south towards Nai Harn beach.
I highly recommend calling in at this view point, and perhaps as we did, negotiate yourself a good deal to get a private(taxi) car and driver (he will be your guide) and travel from your accommodation at patong, karta or karon and make yourself a day tour down to nai harn beach (40 mins south of patong) for a swim and lunch (your driver will happily wait while you swim and eat lunch) calling in at the view point on the way down to Nai Harn beach and also again on the way back to take photos at differing times of the day with differing light and conditions etc.
I hope my review and advice has been of some help to you ?? ..... Happy holidays !!
Cheers !!

We arrived just as the sun was setting. In retrospect I wish we arrived earlier. The view is magnificent. Take some bubbly or a few beers and enjoy the sunset

Stopped in here quickly on a culture tour for about 20 mins. If you have a camera with panoramic capabilities, use it for sure. Got some great snaps here. The rain forest gardens and little hut up the top were fantastic.
