Away from the bustle of touristy Phuket, Cape Yamu stands a level above the rest, both topographically and metaphorically. Over the years, this peninsula with rolling hills and coconut groves has transformed from an isolated abode of fishing villages and rubber, coconut and cashew plantations, to one of the most exclusive areas on the island. Today, Cape Yamu is a favoured spot amongst the elite set, who seek seclusion and luxurious vacations.
Just 27km from Phuket airport, Cape Yamu sits on the east coast of the island. The eastern edge of the cape offers views towards Phang Nga Bay, one of Thailand’s finest yachting destinations, with a floating village and limestone cliff islands to explore. Meanwhile, the cape’s western side overlooks Sapam Bay, where sunset views are of boats gliding serenely over the bay’s calm waters.
