About John Suwan Viewpoint, Ko Tao

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 - Write a Review

  • Was pretty hard to get there because it was raining very hard, but it was worth it. The view over the whole island was breathtaking. We paid a fee to get there, it wasn't expensive at all. If you visit the island you shouldn't miss this place. I think it s one of the best places on the island.

  • You have to pay 100 bahnt each to get to the top. I would recommend shoes but its not necessary. When your on top you have a nice view on the south of the Island, which is worth the Stress and money to get there. After that check the beach!

  • A must do view point if your in Koh Tao, the hike to the top is very simple and quick, although this doesn't get you to a very high viewpoint, it is still a very nice view of the 2 bays either sides of you. You have to pay 50 bht to enter this area where you can visit the beaches, then another 50bht to get to the viewpoint which is a little annoying

  • Beautiful view of the southern part of the island! The steep climb to reach the viewpoint totally worths it!

  • You have to pay 50 Baht but you have an amazing view and after the viewpoint you can go downstairs to the beach for cooling down
