Phuket Province - Attractions - View Points

Promthep Cape

Phromthep Cape, Phuket 's most popular sunset view point'Prom' is Thai for the Hindu 'Brahma' signifying purity, and 'Thep' means 'God'. Prom Thep is a headland stretching in to the sea and forming the extreme south-end of Phuket. Promthep Cape (Laem Prom Thep) has been a prominent feature for mariners since of early seafarers from the sup-continent, remains of whose journey have been found all along the Malay-peninsula's west coast.

From Rawai Beach turn right and go for 2 kilometers. The cape has tall cliffs on the south, and was formerly called by local villagers 'Laem Jao' (The Gods' Cape). From the cliffs running down to the boulders at the sea is the line of toddy palm trees. Emerald green currents swirl in the water and breakers hurl themselves in vain against the rocky point: it is one of Phulet's most inspiring vistas. In the distance can be seen Gaew Island (Koh Gaew). From Promthep Cape, which is the most beautiful place to catch Phuket's famous sunset, a road leads northwest to Naiharn Beach.
