(4.5/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • The views are breathtaking, it's a bit of a climb so you'll need moderate fitness, but they have good ropes along the way to hold on to. Sunset is amazing but expect to fight for the best viewing point so get their early
  • Best viewpoint of the island!!! The freedom beach below was the nicest we have seen in koh Tao.
