While riding from Karon to Rawai or Nai Harn it was hard not to stop here multiple times for the lovely views, and it was never too crowded unlike some of the other Viewpoints.

Karon View point offers some great views of Phuket. Also you have an opportunity to take a picture with an eagle there. No public transport here. So you need to hire a vehicle.

I wouldnt call it an activity but its a good place to escape the smell and noise of the bustling streets. My boyfriend and I went there a few times just to drive the road and get some fresh air. It has lots of shade and it can be peaceful if you miss all the tourists. You can see Kata... More

If you are staying in Karon or Kata, you really should visit here. You get an amazing view of the beaches at Karon, Kata and Kata Noi. Beautiful. We took a Tuktuk ride and the driver waited for us patiently. It was a slightly scary ride up though. There are a few stalls there selling cold drinks. We whiled away... More

The views are breathtakingly beautiful. Three beaches are visible from this view point - Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach and Karon Beach. The View point is less crowded than Promthep Cape during sunset. The road leading up tobthis View point is also awesome giving picturesque views of the Ocean and the surrounding hills. A must visit.
