We spent half a day climbing up to the viewpoint that was located right behind the beach itself. It was a steep climb and we had to pay a man some money since we were passing through his property, he had some rabid dogs in our defence :) The view was magnificent!
In the taxi down to the ferry point in Koh Tao we talked a bit with an american guy that was leaving Koh Tao as well and he really recommended this place in Koh Phangan called Bottle Beach. So we decided to go there! It is one of the most beautiful places I have been and so very very relaxing... It only has about three hotels and restaurants and the only way to get there is by boat. This makes it a bit secluded and there aren't that many tourists there. If you need a place to chill out and relax this is the place :)
