Thailand! A view of Rawai beach as never seen before!

Paradise beach bar and restaurant is located Rawai Phuket Thailand.

It is not that which is the focus of this video though, more a point where I started a beautiful walk along what at first appeared to be a very small part of rawai Beach, but as the tide went out during the morning gave me access to other more secluded parts of the beach, which curves round towards the cape of Panwa.
Sometimes time is better spent waiting for better moments to present themselves to you.

Promthep Cape- Phuket-Thailand

Promthep Cape is one of the most photographed locations in Phuket. Every evening, tour buses, scooters and private cars sweep through Rawai Beach and up the island's southernmost hill to watch the sunset, which can also be spelt as 'Phromthep Cape' (though it's said the same way). There's also a lighthouse displaying interesting historical maritime artefacts here. It commands spectacular views over the east and southeast of the island and its environs.

The lighthouse/museum is air-conditioned, and if you go up to the outdoor terrace, you can see the distinctive shapes of Phi Phi Islands, Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi on a clear day. Most of the time, you'll be able to see nearby islands, like Koh Kaeo Yai with its Buddhist monastery.

Some people make the rather demanding trek down to the end of Promthep Cape's promontory, though most stay in the viewing part for sunset
