Best Spots to watch sunset in Phuket

31 October 2017

Phuket is an island blessed with enviable viewpoints to take in the sunset.

From splendid bars across it’s multiple beaches to natural hills with gorgeous views of the ocean and sky, you will be spoiled for choice. There’s nothing quite like taking in the sunset on a tropical island, where your surroundings seem to just be in total harmony. The best part of visiting these spots is that they’re all within driving distance from one another

Panwa Viewpoint

This is a fantastic spot that’s located on the way to Cape Panwa. The top-floor of the viewing tower is where you should go for the best vistas, especially if you’re keen to take some photographs as well. You won’t get a better view of Southern Phuket anywhere else on the island.

Radar Hill Viewpoint

Some of the best sunset spots around the world seem to create memorable montages of tropical beauty, man made splendor and the ocean. From Radar Hill Viewpoint, you’ll see it all. It’s the highest viewing platform in Phuket and offers one of the best photo opportunities of Patong Beach.

Kata Noi

Groovy music, cocktails, hilltop bar and sunset. Can’t go wrong with that, which is exactly what you’ll get at one of the three hilltop bars on Kata Noi. After Beach Bar is one of the most popular venues in the area. Heaven Restaurant & Bar is another bistro with an enviable view of the Andaman Sea – they’re also renowned for their excellent seafood menu.

360 Degrees

Situated near Layan Beach, 360 degrees is one of the trendiest restaurants in all of Phuket and for good reason. Besides their hilltop location and fantastic menu, the view of the sea is utterly splendid. If you want to enjoy a romantic evening with a bottle of wine, dinner and the sunset, this is the spot to be.

Surin Beach

If you’d like to view the sunset in a more private and natural setting, make your way to Surin Beach. There is an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars that run along the beach, each offering a great cocktail selection for you to enjoy the views.

Baba Nest

Sri Panwa is widely regarded as one of the finest luxury properties in Thailand. Their rooftop bar, Baba’s Nest, is where you’ll witness an intoxicating sunset view. The laid-back atmosphere here together with the fabulous décor makes this one of the most sought-after bars on the island.

Promthep Cape

This is one of the more popular viewpoints in Phuket, so you can expect a decent crowd especially at sunset. Still, it’s highly regarded for a reason since the view of the ocean and sunset from here seem infinite.
