About Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket

Up on a hill between the Ya Nui and Nai Harn Beaches is one of the most scenic vistas on the island, photographed and pasted innumerable times onto Phuket’s tourists brochures. Tall windmills that are visible from far away face out over the sea. To get there, drive south past Nai Harn beach and be on the lookout for a sharp right turn. Out to the sea you’ll see a curiously shaped island, the Koh Man, vessels in the water, the cute Ya Nui Beach, or even some model aeroplane flying. But in all honesty the only time really worth coming is during sunset, when the color of the sky and the sea will stun you into silence.

Windmill Viewpoint, Phuket Reviews

  • It’s pretty.... every place is pretty here. Lol don’t worry about going to find the perfect place for photos. You won’t go wrong anyplace you go. Just get on a scooter and drive. There’s a picture perfect viewpoint around every corner.

  • You really should consider this viewpoint if you come to phuket. The view is fantastic. The windmill make this viewpoint more attractive. Great place to take photos. If you drive here, there is parking slot at the top for free. Make sure you don't miss this! I totally like this place!

  • Took my wedding photoshoot here. This place is a gem! It looks like you’re in beautiful Europe! You can also watch the sunset from here instead of overrated/ crowded Promthep Cape. Although coming up here is less convenient than the Cape. Def a place not to be missed! May be very warm in midday but your photos will turn out breathtaking!

  • Very nice lookout point of the ocean. I ducked under there for cover because it started to pour. I was hoping to catch a rainbow since the rain moved quickly, but no rainbows. It's also a great spot to see shooting stars. I went back another evening when the sky was clear at 3 am and saw many stars and shooting stars.

  • A very nice viewpoint, maybe the best on Phuket for watching the sunset. Hence it is immensely popular, expect lots of cars, bikes and up to 50 people for every single sunset. But there is plenty of room for everyone.
