Lonely Planet review for Laem Phromthep
If you want to see the luscious Andaman Sea bend around Phuket, then you come here, to the island’s southernmost point. Crowned by a mod lighthouse shaped like a concrete crab, and an evocative elephant shrine, you’ll stay a while. At sunset the hordes descend in luxury buses, so if you crave privacy, take the faint fishermen’s trail downhill to the rocky peninsula that reaches into the ocean and watch the sun drop in peace.
