Located between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches, the viewpoint is busy most days of the year and is a staple of many tour itineraries. Called locally ‘Khao Saam Haad’ (Three Beaches Hill), the local municipality for some reason has officially renamed it ‘Karon Viewpoint’. It’s located just to the south of Kata Noi Beach and looks out directly out to the Andaman Sea but most people have their cameras trained due north at the undeniably impressive eight-kilometre vista of the three west coast beaches in the background.

This was our first visit to Phuket and we found this tour great to see the main attractions. We had plenty of time at each place to get a good look around. Our guide was excellent and shared a lot of the history of the places we went to. Highly recommend this tour
The tour was ok and the lady was polite, i just don't like taking us for shopping. I book tour for sightseeing
We had to wait nearly an hour and a half to be picked up for the tour because the driver ‘made a mistake’ and forgot to pick us up. Once we were on the tour it was quite a nice day, just unfortunate it was a bit of a rubbish start.
This five and a half hour tour brings you to the top attractions around Phuket Island including the magnificent Big Buddha.
Choose from a Morning Tour which has you winding along Phuket’s southern shoreline, marvelling at white sands, lush tropical flora and the unique vibe of Patong, Karon, Kata and Rawai beaches. The photo opportunities will be particularly fantastic from two Viewpoints and three further stops will be made at Wat Chalong Temple and The Big Buddha plus, being one of the island's biggest sources of income, a cashew nut factory. Pass through Phuket Old Town.
Should you choose the Afternoon Tour, the focus is on the Phuket Old Town component as it is a Walking Tour. Stops are made at the cashew nut factory, The Big Buddha and Wat Chalong. Promthep Cape, Phuket's southern-most tip, is the last place you'll stop at where you will be mesmerised by the striking sunset (weather permitting).
The Shared Afternoon tour operates Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays only.
