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 trek up to this view point is very steep and not for the majorly unfit! Dragging our selves up half of it by ropes, quite an experience though. Although we had to pay 100B each to get to the road ...  read more »
  • We walked over from chalok bay / beach to freedom beach, so we didn't have to pay extra to reach the starting point by scooter. Pay an extra 50 baht to visit viewpoint, but worth it!! 
  • The way up high is something exhausting, especially in non solid shoes, be sure to remember! If it is above, it is compensated for the hard March. As ever before mentioned, you have to pay outrageous almost 2 times entry, only 50 baht pP... The first entry is still before the freedom Beach (our favorite Beach, are there always gone, despite admission) required to pass almost to... It should serve for this, keep clean to the beach, but well;);) A few hundred metres man who reached the second checkpoint before going up to the viewpoint... You can safely eat and very well down on freedom Beach in the eponymous restaurant :) occasionally to play there albums by SEEED :D

  • 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
  • Amazing view. You have to pay entrance fee 50 thb, but it definitely worth it.
  • Best viewpoint of the island!!! The freedom beach below was the nicest we have seen in koh Tao.
  • Best view ever. Worth every penny.
  • Stunning 360 degree view
