Phrom Thep Cape is between Rawai and Nai Harn beaches. The cape has great views of the small island of Koh Kaew Yai and the Andaman Sea, and is a very popular place to watch the sunset.
The cape is named after Brahma, the Hindu god of creation At the top is a shrine dedicated to this God. For an even better view, climb up the stairs to the platform in the Golden Jubilee Lighthouse. The lighthouse also contains a small nautical museum.

Kata View Point
A pavillion by the side of the road between Kata and Nai Harn marks the spot for this viewpoint. On a clear day, the view of the bays of Kata Noi, Kata Yai, Karon and Pu Island are fantastic.

Rang Hill
The views from this hill have lovely views across Phuket city. There is a fitness park at the top as well as a statue of Phuket's most famous governor, Ratsada Korsimbi Na Ranong. The best reason to visit Rang Hill is to have a meal at one of the hill-top restaurants. The view at night, is amazing.
