Смотровая площадка Промтеп (Promthep View Point)

Viewpoint at Promthep Cape and the lighthouse Kanjanaphisek lighthouse Phuket is also marked on maps as the Sunset View Point Phromthep Cape View Point. This is the most popular observation deck, which offers breathtaking views of the coast and the beaches of Yanui and Naiharn. There are always a lot of people, including local residents, and in the evenings before sunset here bring tourists with their buses. Playground is well equipped and there is a mini market with food stalls, a few restaurants, including a sea view. There are many interesting things besides just beautiful species and recommended it. That is good, the site visit is included in many tours, and especially good if you manage to get here just before sunset and spend the sun over the horizon. Keep in mind that the sunsets in Thailand are from 18 to 19 hours depending on the time of year, and very quick, literally 5-10 minutes.

Смотровая площадка Промтеп (Promthep View Point) Elephant sanctuary

The Central character on the observation deck is the Shrine of the elephant (the Elephant shrine). It is something like a traditional Thai house of the spirits, surrounded by statues of elephants, which here bring local residents in gratitude for a fulfilled wish. A few dozen metres from the lighthouse, which is also more like a Shrine than a real lighthouse, because its top is crowned with figures of elephants. At the base of the lighthouse is a small Museum on the subject of navigation. You can climb to the top, offering the most spectacular panoramic views. Unfortunately, the Museum and the lighthouse is not always according to schedule (on the schedule it is open from 08:00 to 19:00). There could be as lucky.

The most active tourists can walk right to the Promthep Cape, which is issued in the sea and which offers even more spectacular views along the coast, but beware, the descent is not equipped, also present the danger of high waves.

🕐 Working time: Playground available around the clock, but it is best to come here during sunset, from 18:00 to 19:00. The lighthouse Museum is open from 08:00 to 19:00

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: free

🚶 How to get there: the observation deck is located on the very South of the island along the main road 4233 near Naiharn beach (on the map). From Naiharn beach or Nai Harn beach is reachable on foot, and other beaches of the island on a rented vehicle, a taxi, or a tour.
