Watch sunset at Promthep Cape
With its elevated location and few small islands nearby, the Promthep Cape is certainly a nice place to see the sunset and the sea. But this location is well known, so if you want to avoid the crowds, walk all the way down to the end of the cape. You are then at the most southern tip of the main island of Phuket. A lot of tourists come here to take their sunset photos which makes it the best-known photography location in Phuket. Therefore it might get very busy, but if you read the photo tip you will know where you have to go 😉
