Promthep Cape is a picturesque vantage point in southern Phuket noted for its breath-taking sunsets and photo opportunities. The cape commands sweeping views over the Andaman Sea and surrounding islands and is a preferred spot for visitors and locals alike to watch the sunset from.

Sunset at the Big Buddha Phuket is a serene and memorable experience. Located on the peak of a hill in the south of Phuket, this statue stands at 45 meters tall and affords visitors beautiful views of the surrounding area. As the sun sets, the sky takes on a stunning array of colours which can be seen from the base of the statue, which is constructed from white Burmese marble. This is an ideal spot for those seeking a more traditional experience. You can even contribute to the construction of the sweeping staircase by donating towards a piece of white marble to make your sunset even more special.
Kata Noi Beach is a wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy the setting sun. It’s one of Phuket’s smallest beaches, measuring around 700 metres in length. The major charms here are the soft sand beach, crystal clear turquoise water and lush green forest backgrounds. This spot is a little more secluded than other beaches in the area, making it popular for those looking for a peaceful sunset experience. Simply sit back, get comfortable and relax, because as the sun sets, the world becomes still allowing you to bask in the beauty of the moment.
With so many fantastic spots to watch the sunset in Phuket, you are quite literally spoilt for choice. So, take a breath, enjoy the peacefulness a setting sun can bring and allow yourself to unwind without distractions during the golden hour and beyond.
