This place can be called the landmark of Phuket. Whether you come here to enjoy a sunset or to take a few pictures you won’t be disappointed.
There is a working lighthouse on the Cape with a small historical Museum inside. On the way to the lighthouse, you will find a shrine. Thai people believe that such a beautiful place is certainly inhabited by strong spirits. To gain spirits favor or pay respect Thais often bring offerings or gifts to the shrine. You can buy a gift for yourself or your loved ones at a souvenir market located in front of the parking lot.
Most people don’t go beyond the concrete barrier wall. But there is a dirt path leading down that will take you directly to flat stones, gently sloping into the sea.
