Deisha Viewpoint / High The Moon Viewpoint 360
This stunning viewpoint isn’t one of Koh Tao’s highest, but it does offer a unique perspective looking down over Chalok Baan Kao and Chalok Bay, and out towards Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. Despite the impressive view, it remains one of the lesser-known and least visited of Koh Tao’s viewpoints, so it is a nice spot to relax for a while. The bar there is open every day from 12midday, and you can either take in the panorama from the large decking area or walk about 50 metres through the jungle where you’ll find a large granite boulder you can sit upon to take in the sights.
To reach Deisha Viewpoint and Viewpoint Bar, you’ll need to take the turning off the main road between Mae Haad and Chalok Baan Kao which is signposted for Sai Nuan Beach. The road is in good condition but is steep, and you’ll need to take a turning on the left on one of the steeper curves near the top to reach Deisha View. There are some large signs for the bar that mark the turning point. You can park your rental scooter and walk from there, as the dirt track can be rutted and difficult to traverse, plus you’ll need to use some stairs to reach the bar and access the viewpoint anyway.
There are no charges for accessing the viewpoint, however it is encouraged that you purchase some drinks or food at DeishaView Bar.
Services & Facilities
Open from midday daily, both soft drinks and alcoholic refreshments are served, and on the expansive wooden decking you’ll find hammocks and comfortable beanbags to relax in. Deisha View Viewpoint Bar often has live music, and use of the pool table is free to all visitors.
Sunrise or Sunset?
Deisha View is best enjoyed at sunset and offers a more personalised horizon-gazing alternative than sunset at one of the busier Koh Tao viewpoints or any of the bars along Sairee Beach.
