Cape Panwa Beach in Phuket

Cape Panwa Beach, also known as Khao Khad Beach, is not a swimming beach, and yet has the charm of these remote bays not many would take the time to explore while visiting Phuket. Located on an east coast cape, but facing west, the whole area is peppered with luxury villas and few resorts, a great alternative to relax away from west coast crowded spots.

This south-west facing beach – named after a nearby Muslim village – has managed to remain exactly the same as it has been for years in spite of intensive urbanisation in the direct area. It’s still tranquil and a haven for people who like peace and quiet.

If you hungry, you can have lunch or drinks at one of the few restaurants available along the beach, such as the ‘Beach Bar’. You can even stay at one of the beautiful resorts around, most popular being the Novotel Panwa, and enjoy a great morning stroll along the sandy bay all the way to the few fishing boats at the southern end.

If you drove there, you should also continue up to the nearby Panwa Viewpoint (also known as Khao Khad Views Tower) has a full 360-degree views out over southern and eastern Phuket. Located on the way out to Cape Panwa, it’s not a busy spot like Cape Promthep or Big Buddha but is every bit as spectacular. There is ample parking here as well as cafes and shops. The stairs are a bit of a climb, but it’s more than worth it once you’re at the top as the views of Southern Phuket are immensely rewarding.

Chalong Bay lies below to the south, Makham Bay, Cape Panwa and Phuket’s deep water port to the east, Phuket Town to the north and over in the distance you can see the Big Buddha sitting serenely atop Ko Nakkerd – and that’s a view that looks exotic in any kind of weather. So it’s no wonder that they call this wonderful place Khao Khad View(s) Tower as there is so much to see here.

Cape Panwa beach and its surrounding is not your usual tropical holiday destination, but once you drive there on a nice day you will see a side of Phuket island not many take the time to enjoy.
