Karon View Point is picturesque and has breath taking views overlooking the ocean. We went there midday on our way to the Big Bhudda, it was not full which enabled us to take as much pictures as we could. There are taxis that one can hire from the hotels that can take to the View Point, The Big Bhudda and the Temple for a very reasonable amount. We were charged R390 to take us to all these places.
Karon View Point, Phuket, offers beautiful views of the three bays of the Big and Small Kata and Karon Beach when the weather is fine. This is the famous scenery on Phuket postcards. The best viewing platform.
Karen? Kata? Silly and unclear
Karen Observation Deck and Kata Observation Deck are not clear, we often mix and use, in fact, should be the same place. The reason for this confusion is that the observation deck is located in Kata but the name is Karen (probably because of the possibility of seeing Karon Beach). Because the location is on the mountain, it is very troublesome to come over. It is recommended to take a taxi or report to the group. If the weather is good, you can see Kata Beach in the distance and Karon Beach farther away. The view is good.
Karon View Point is located at the top of the mountain near Karon Beach. The vista opens up into the distance all the way to Big Kata, Little Kata and Karon Bay. With a clear view all the way to Phuket's skyline, it is one of the most popular points to watch the sunset. From dawn to dusk and even beneath the stars, this is a good place to set up a tripod and camera.
