Phromthep Cape or Laem Phromthep  is most photographs of the stunningly beautiful sunset in Phuket were taken here: Laem Phromthep at the south-most tip of Phuket island offers a memorable, unparalleled sunset moment on a clear day.


Go early and sit back to enjoy the sun setting behind the Andaman sea. With its landscape easily recognizable by sailors, it is also the location of the 50-feet-tall Kanchanaphisek Lighthouse, erected in 1996 to celebrate the auspicious occasion of the king’s 50th anniversary of his accession to the throne.


The view from the Phromthep Cape is like a huge eternity pool from which you can mentally project the far-flung shores of Sri Lanka and the Indian Subcontinent. Some people make the rather demanding trek down to the end of the cape’s promontory but most stay up in the viewing part for sunset. By the car park there is a handicrafts shop and a series of stalls that sell shells, batik, snacks, sarongs, shawls, toys and beachwear.
