Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket Town

4.7
Nestled between two beaches, Windmill Viewpoint remains a lesser-known spot with sweeping western views over the verdant coastline, Cape Phromthep, and the island of Koh Man. Named for the tall windmills gracing the top of the lookout, this perch attracts model-airplane enthusiasts by day and a pleasantly small crowd for sunset. Amenities are few, save an occasional vendor selling drinks or jewelry. If you're driving here for one of the spectacular sunsets, note that the parking lot closes just after the sun goes down, so consider leaving the car outside the lot to enjoy the last of the day's rays stress-free. Before you head to Phuket Town, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Phuket Town trip site, to make sure you see all that Phuket Town has to offer, including Windmill Viewpoint.
