Viewpoints on Koh Tao

Discover the best viewpoints on Koh Tao. Impressive ocean panoramas, stunning sunset views, and picture-perfect moments await you.

Every viewpoint on Koh Tao offers a unique outlook over the lush green jungle and beaches below stretching out across the ocean. Naturally, the east coast locations are better for sunrise, while western facing locations are better for sunset. On a clear day, you’ll be able to make out Koh Phangan, Koh Samui, and Angthong Marine Park to the southeast, and see all the way to the mainland on the west. 

Some viewpoints on Koh Tao are easier to get to than others. Many are easy to access by road and even have small restaurants and cafes offering light meals and refreshments. The more remote viewpoints require some steep drives or even some hiking to reach. 

Please note that access fees apply at some Koh Tao viewpoints, so we recommend carrying some change with you when you visit.

Remote Viewpoints

If you don’t mind a steep drive or a bit of hiking, then you’ll be rewarded with unspoiled vistas and minimal other traffic. Some of these Koh Tao viewpoints are just rocky outcroppings or mountain ledges jutting out from the jungle – so the chances of having to share with many other visitors is minimal.

Viewpoints with Bars

Sweating it out on a jungle hike isn’t for everyone. So if you prefer to simply drive to each viewpoint, snap some shots for Instagram, grab a refreshing beer, and head off again, then these are the best options for you:
