Phuket is an island and the main town does not have these rock formations. So hard to answer.
Rio calls these "rock formations" mountains and they are not like the ones in your picture. The mountains are stunning though and give Rio an iconic look.
The island of Capri has superb rock formations off the coast (i faraglioni) but they are not right off the town center.

I know , good point but still this mixture of rock formation and ocean is stunning.

El Nido and Coron, both in Palawan, Philippines

If you include rivers, there's also Guilin, Guangxi, China.

These geological features in the sea coast are unique to South East Asia. I was also going to say El Nido, Philippines. It's spectacular!
