John-Suwan Viewpoint, Koh Tao

(4.5/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
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.
