With its steep pitched hills and tranquil seas, Koh Tao offers a variety of stunning vistas, none more beautiful or easily accessible than the John Suwan viewpoint. Located at the Southeast end of the island the viewpoint has a panorama that includes both Chalok Bay and Shark Bay. To get there simply follow the main road until it deadends at Freedom Beach Resort. Hike up the hill 500 meters and you're there! Make sure you bring 50 baht. Halfway up the hill a dude napping like a cat will rouse himself and charge you an entry fee. It's worth it! Here is glimpse at what you'll see.
