The Love Koh Tao Viewpoint is one of the most popular attractions on the island. With panoramic views overlooking Tanote Bay and the eastern coastline of the island, the Love Koh Tao Viewpoint is not to be missed!

 

Have you got travel insurance for Thailand? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

HOW TO GET TO LOVE KOH TAO VIEWPOINT

Love Koh Tao Viewpoint is located in the centre of the island. It’s a short 15-minute drive from Sairee Beach, the main tourist hub on the island. Love Koh Tao Viewpoint has good road access and a carpark at the top of the hill.

The best way to get around Koh Tao is to rent a scooter for 150 Baht per day to explore all four corners of the island. There are dozens of scooter rental stores in and around town and most accommodations offer scooter rentals too.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE LOVE KOH TAO VIEWPOINT

There is an entry fee of 20 Baht to take photos at the Love Koh Tao viewpoint or alternatively if you buy something to eat or drink then the entry fee is waived.

Love Koh Tao viewpoint is a fantastic spot to watch the sunrise as it faces east over the Gulf Of Thailand. If you’re not a morning person, no worries, Love Koh Tao is also a great spot for lunch and a freshly squeezed fruit juice.

There a number of great photo opportunities at the Love Koh Tao viewpoint, including the @lovekohtao sign, the netted beds and the big colorful welcome sign.

Love Koh Tao is one of my favorite Koh Tao viewpoints for a short visit in between some beach hopping.
