Gain an extensive, sweeping vista at John-Suwan Viewpoint, one of the island's most photographed scenes. Named after two friends—John and Suwan—who discovered this viewpoint, the spot offers sights of Chalok Baan Kao Bay and Thian Og Bay, their two beaches curling into one another. It's a short hike (about 15 minutes) from Chalok Baan Kao Beach to the viewpoint on the mountain ridge.

  • fabulous place to watch the sun set. A must do when in Koh Tao, we loved it . Make sure to wear suitable foot wear as the climb can be a little steep.

  • Breathtaking views. Probably the best spot of the island for the perfect pic. Definitely work the hike and the entrance fee. Don't forget to wear shoes (I broke my flip-flops climbing the last steep part of the trail).
  • Great view! Absolutely pays of! Maybe connect it with going to the Freedom Beach so you only have to pay for the entrance fee once (50TB)
