Phromthep Cape in Phuket – Where the Sun Sets Last in Thailand

Phromthep Cape or Laem Promthep in Thai (meaning “God’s Cape”) is Phuket’s most south westerly point offering breathtaking sea views of islands and rocky coastline. There is no better place to watch the sunset in Phuket, and the fact that the sun sets here last in Thailand makes the experience even more fun. It can be very crowded, and parking can be difficult, so you should consider taking a tuk-tuk or bus.

What is there to do at Promthep Cape?

People come here to watch the sunset, but Phromthep also has an interesting lighthouse with lots of maritime artifacts if you’re into that kind of thing, and from the balcony, you can see all the way to the Phi Phi Islands on a clear day. There is also a large open-air restaurant called Promthep Cape Restaurant with delicious food and a great view of Nai Harn Beach.

Promthep Cape is a 30-minute drive from Patong Beach. See the map below.
