Breathtaking Waterfalls in Phuket – Adventure Time!

Phuket is the magical paradise of Thailand and not just for its beautiful beaches that have been a dream destination for tourists from all over the world. The inland is a breath-taking wonder all on its own, and nothing is as spectacular as the waterfalls. Here are few you can explore.


Bang Pae

The first on our list is Bang Pae waterfall. It stands at 10 m tall in the Thalang District of Phuket and can be visited at any time of the year as it is always gushing. But the best time would be between May to December when it is the rainy season. There is an entrance fee of THB 200 per person because it is located in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park and open only from 8 am to 4.30 pm.


Ton Sai

Get a good breakfast or lunch in you at one of the multitudes of Phuket restaurants before you head to the second waterfall on our lists because this is open 24 hours a day. Located just 20 minutes from Bang Paeon in the Thalang District, Ton Sai waterfall is not huge but what it lacks there it makes up as it is the best place to go to look for birds. So be sure to take your binoculars and cameras with you when you visit.



Kathu Waterfall is special in that instead of being one big waterfall it is made up of layered cascades and pools. The best time to visit is from June to November. But be aware that the rock is very slippery so the ascent to the very top from which you can see the whole waterfall and the surrounding view is a tough one. But well worth the effort once you get to the top. The pools are completely safe for swimming and you should take a dip while you are there. A charge of THB 100 is made for foreigners. There's a snack counter at the entrance for you to grab a bite, but maybe picking up a delicious lunch from a restaurant like Age Restaurant would be highly advisable.


Ao Yon

Ao Yon Waterfall is accessible all year round and is somewhat of a secret because of its almost discreet location. Situated in Cape Panwa, Ao Yon is a great waterfall to get some high-quality photographs if you are into that kind of thing. You must be careful trying to find the waterfall because there are so many paths to it that you might end up losing your way. There are some villages with hut-like houses and buffalo that you will come across on your way. There are pools but they aren't big enough for swimming. Thanks to the fact that not many people know about the waterfall you will find there's a lot of lush vegetation surrounding it.



Lampi Waterfall is the ideal picnic spot, located in the Thai Mueang District. It is open from 9 am to 6 pm and would be perfect to visit from April to October.
