Kata Noi is situated right at the very south western tip of Phuket. We chose the western side of Phuket thinking it’d be far more user friendly to have sundowners while watching a sunset than getting up at the crack of dawn to watch the run rise.
However, our trip coincided with the start of the monsoon season, so haze, clouds and some rain thwarted our efforts on most days. Except for one… We waited and waited and the clouds appeared and it was truly magical. This is what we experienced.
