Promthep Cape

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

Leading up the mountain from the Nong Han Lagoon is Phuket' s most famous viewpoint, Promthep Cape. This popular spot is framed by a collection of white windmills gently blowing on the hills behind, but the main attraction is in the small island slightly out to sea. The sun sets nightly to crowds of onlookers, who delight in the red and gold streaks that bounce off its rocky form, casting shadows into the water below and fading slowly as the sun dips beyond the horizon.

During the daytime, sea breezes sweep the viewpoints open position, providing a soothing vantage point from which to watch the numerous sailing boats bobbing about near the Royal Phuket Yacht Club in the waters below.

There is a small lighthouse to the rear of the viewpoint, which many miss as they focus their attention on the sea ahead. It is open to the public, and views from the top are spectacular. A small restaurant serves refreshments and Thai food, and is very reasonably priced considering that it monopolises the area.

Ya Nui Cove

Yanui beach PhuketAt the foot of the mountainous road leading up to Promthep Cape is the little known Ya Nui Cove. This tiny bay has only a few sun beds and just one small restaurant. It is sheltered from the elements and has clusters of small rocks to either side, which attract small fish and other marine life, and make it one of the best spots in the south of the island for snorkeling.
