Most photographs of the stunningly beautiful sunset in Phuket were taken here: Laem Phromthep at the south-most tip of Phuket island offers a memorable, unparalleled sunset moment on a clear day. Go early and sit back to enjoy the sun setting behind the Andaman sea. With its landscape easily recognizable by sailors, it is also the location of the 50-feet-tall Kanchanaphisek Lighthouse, erected in 1996 to celebrate the auspicious occasion of the king’s 50th anniversary of his accession to the throne.
To travel to Phromthep cape, drive from Phuket town along Highway no. 4027. Pass Hat Rawai beach, and keep going straight on Highway no.4233. It takes around nearly 600 meters to reach the destination. The path is quite steep, trekkers must keep driving up the hill. It takes a short while before reaching the open-space parking lot for Phromthep cape visitors.
