Recently took the short hike up to John Susan View point and was not disappointed with view - one of the best viewpoints on the island.

My boyfriend and I did the "hike" up in flip-flops and sneakers and it took maybe 10-15 minutes. After reading the reviews on here before we thought it would be much harder but it's the easiest walk/hike we have done on the island. So don't...More
Took 10 mins to get to the top in flip flops. You do not need to be particularly fit, you just need some semblance of coordination and balance. Easiest and shortest hike I have done on the island. Went very early in morning, nobody was...More
Great view from the top. Worth the climb. 50 baht entry fee. Wear proper shoes eg sneakers. Few rocky bits/uneven areas. Take plenty of water. We hired a scooter to get the entry as staying in Sairee Beach area but you can walk the whole...More
It is near Taatoh resort and freedom beach resort, but you have to climbe/walk about 30 minutes. Road is very bad and slippery. There is a man who asks for payment 50-100baht per person (legal or not legal I don't know).
Easy to go, follow the map and can go by your own motorbike.

Lovely hike up, hindered by the fact all three of us were wearing flip flops!
I actually took them off and did it barefoot.
It gets quite steep and it would be difficult for anyone to traverse that wasn't physically fit.
Worth it though!
