Phromthep Cape Tours

Situated at Phuket’s most southerly point, Promthep Cape (or Laem Promthep) is the rocky headland than juts out into the sea here, offering incredible views over the east and southeast of the island, particularly at sunset.

Promthep Cape is a popular spot with ample parking and a large open space on top of the hill from which to enjoy the views. There’s also an elephant shrine plus a lighthouse with historical maritime artifacts on display for those interested in the history of the area. If you go up to the viewing balcony of the lighthouse, you will be rewarded with some spectacular views of the surrounding islands – on a clear day, you can even make out the distinctive shapes of Koh Phi Phi, Koh Racha Yai, and Koh Racha Noi.

Every evening, tour buses and other vehicles arrive at Promthep Cape full of tourists and locals looking to catch the sunset. As a result, an inevitable series of stalls selling the usual tourist fare have been set up on the hill. After the rush at sunset, a sudden peace descends on the area, and those who like dining with a view can enjoy a peaceful dinner overlooking Nai Harn Beach at the Phromthep Cape Restaurant.

A trip up to Promthep Cape can be combined with visiting Phuket’s other viewpoints and attractions on a half-day Phuket city tour or a full-day island and city tour from Krabi. Those into their motorbikes will love exploring the island’s most scenic parts on a ‘big’ motorbike day trip.

Insider’s Tip: Promthep Cape gets extremely busy at sunset. If you want more privacy, take the fishermen’s trail down to the rocky peninsula that reaches out into the ocean. Here you can enjoy the sun descending into the sea in peace, but beware that the climb back up is somewhat challenging!

Practical Info

If not arriving as part of an organized tour, you can reach Promthep Cape by hiring a motorbike or taking a taxi and heading south from Rawai Beach.
