On the top of the hill above Nai Harn Beach, it is possible to find many little windmills, completely white, which dominate the hill and give this viewpoint an extraordinary charm. Windmill Viewpoint is located between Ya Nui and Nai Harn beaches in south Phuket. Coming on top of the hill will allow you to spread the gaze on the Andaman Sea, looking down on the boats that seem like little points on the sea, or you can admire the sunset, when nature seems on fire. The Windmill Viewpoint in Phuket is one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the whole country: so don’t miss it!
The entire Phuket area in Thailand is full of surprises and this little hill, covered with windmills is one of these. Between Nai Harn and Ya Nui beach, two beautiful beaches of Phuket, you will find the Windmill Viewpoint of Phuket, perfectly on top of this hill. Here you will also find an occasional vendor and a small bar where you can take a drink while enjoying the view from the hill. The views are tremendous and take in Ya Nui Beach to the south, Phromthep Cape further south, Nai Harn Beach to the north and a lusciously verdant oblong-shaped island called Koh Man almost opposite.
Named after the run down windmill that you are bound to spot after passing Nai Harn Beach, this viewpoint rises above one of the most popular beaches in Phuket, Ya Nui Beach, and a tiny island called Koh Man. This is the perfect place to bring a romantic picnic basket or at least a bottle of water as there are rarely any vendors here – Just a covered sala and a small parking space.
Looking down at the sea you can admire the small boats of the fishermen, the traditional long-tail boats, or the big cruises heading to Singapore. You can also direct your look to the amazing nature that surrounds the hill or on the opposite island of Koh Man. After spending a relaxing day at the beach, as so often happens when you visit Thailand, take the chance of climbing up the hill and enjoy the striking view! You will find yourself contemplative and regenerated!
The views are very similar to Promthep Cape, so you should consider catching the sunset here if you want to avoid the big crowd. The place is not crowded unlike the quality of attraction that it provides. Windmill Viewpoint is the only premium sunset viewing point with a great view especially with the amazing colourful sea in the evening.
