There is a white wind turbine (not windmill despite its name) standing on the hill between Ya Nui Beach and Nai Harn Beach in Phuket, catching the energy of the wind to generate power to the area. This hill is also a popular spot for model airplane enthusiasts as well as paragliders. At the top of the viewpoint, there’s an open-air pavilion where you can sit and enjoy the stunning views of the Andaman Sea.

The views are very similar to Promthep Cape, so you should consider catching the sunset here if you want to avoid the big crowd.
There is an open-air pavilion, known as “sala” in Thai, used to protect people from sun and rain. The island opposite is called Koh Man.
Happy wife. She used to live in Phuket for 7 years. This is her home.
