How to get to Fraggle Rock Viewpoint Koh Tao
The viewpoint is an excellent place for visitors to catch one of the amazing sunsets that you get in the Gulf of Thailand.
It is possible to reach Fraggle Rock by scooter, although if you want a challenging hike, you can make the entire journey on foot.
Sairee Beach to Fraggle Rock Viewpoint
It takes approximately an hour to hike to Fraggle Rock starting from Sairee village crossroads next to the 7/11 shop and is uphill all the way.
If you follow the concrete road to Hin Wong bay, pass the left turn for Jim’s bar and Mango Bay Viewpoint and look out for the right turn onto the trail for Fraggle Rock.
Once you are on this trail you carry on hiking until you reach the radio antenna. Next to here you will find another right turn that takes you to Mek’s Mountain, which is a viewpoint much smaller than Fraggle Rock.
Take this turn and if you have time, climb the rope ladder attached to the granite rock boulder and take in the view over Hin Wong Bay.
The last part of the trail, which is the steepest, has ropes alongside it to help you. If you have made your way to this point by scooter, you will need to park it and cover the last section on foot.
Hiking Route to Fraggle Rock Viewpoint
Once you reach Fraggle Rock you will need to scramble up in order to get to the top, but the view down to Sairee beach and across the sea is well worth the effort.

Depending on your level of fitness, it can be a challenging hike so wear sensible shoes, not flip flops and take a small drying towel as you will get sweaty.
