John Suwan Viewpoint - Review

John-Suwan viewpoint offers a panoramic vista of the whole of Ko Tao Island and the nearby islands. The island was named after two friends Mr. John and Mr. Suwan who discovered this viewpoint commanding a view of two beaches merging with each other. One can see Chalok Ban Kaok and ThianOg Bay, one of the most beautiful places on the island. The trekking pathway is short and easy enough for the trek lovers and the serene, green valley is a must see for all the nature lovers and travellers.

John Suwan Viewpoint, Ko Tao Reviews

  • Amazing view from the top, the little hike of 5-10 min is definitely worth it. Flip flops aren't recommended but you can still make up to the top. On the bottom there's a guy/woman that will charge you 50 baht per person for the hike. Apparently someone of that family found the place and now charges for the hike. It's still beautiful on the top though.

  • Amazing views, definitely worthy all the effort of getting there. Route is rather demanding with few high and arrow steps. It is occasionally secured with lines. We made the climb while it was dry, but during or after rain it can get tricky.

  • This point of view is amazing!! You have to climb rocks, so if you are unstable with sleepers: be carefull! You need to pay 100 baths to have the access at the freedom beach and the view point (with 1 bottle of water, kayak and volley ball) A place to see once in your life

  • Fun climb up. Tricky in flip flops but possible. There are ropes to assist. The view from the top is stunning and feels earned. Wasn't too busy to enjoy a rest up there either.

  • This place is one of the best view of Ko Tao. However, a high motorcycle skill is needed to make you get here because the route is steep, narrow and curved.
