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.

  • fabulous place to watch the sun set. A must do when in Koh Tao, we loved it . Make sure to wear suitable foot wear as the climb can be a little steep.

  • Great adventurous!! 50 baht each to go in. Wear good shoes because we need to use robe sometime. It took 15-20 mins to go up there! Amazing view! When you come down check out freedom beach! Beautiful fish and creatures at the beach! You can snorkeling by renting 50 baht from the bar and rent kayak 100 baht.
  • One of the best views over two beautiful bays of Koh Tao! The way is pretty steep at times, I would definitely recommend wearing normal shoes, I wore regular shoes and still slipped sometimes. View is amazing and for the price of 50 Baht you get Parking, access to the Viewpoint, Freedom Beach with a sunbed and showers. Must visit!
