So, although it was pretty quiet when we visited, we would recommend getting there early to avoid the crowds and get the perfect shot.

What To Expect At Overlap Stone Viewpoint

Just before you arrive at Overlap Stone, there’s a small bike carpark. The signs say ‘not to drive further with motorbikes’, so we suggest parking here.

At this point we found a small trail to another Koh Samui viewpoint, just 30 seconds away. We checked it out and it was definitely worth the little detour.

The view across the lush green tree tops to the beautiful blue ocean beyond was stunning and a great spot for some photos.

After we had taken some photos at the viewpoint near the bikes, we walked just 100 metres up the hill to where there was a small sign guiding the way to the Overlap Stone Viewpoint Koh Samui.

There’s a gravelled pathway that leads directly to the machine-made bridge that connects the stone to the people and gives you the chance to get up close.

Overlap Stone viewpoint Koh Samui is a beautifully untouched natural phenomenon. This huge stone is actually delicately perched right in front of a lovely Thai family’s house.

The views from this gigantic stone stretch across the tree tops to Lamai Beach and the ocean. Offering up some fantastic photo opportunities.

The pretty bridge that leads up to Overlap Stone also gives some of the best views of the island!

Overlap Stone In Koh Samui Guide

We visited the the «Overlap Stone » on Koh Samui on 12/18/22 and were very disappointed. We had to pay now 100 THB for parking our car and then another 50 THB per person "Entrance". Yes, the view is ok - but there are many better Viewpoints like this - also with massiv rock formations - in the Chaweng Noi Era.

Also the road is very step and very dangerous. We saw 2 motorcycle accidents within 30 minutes.

@Boris,

the overlap stone is now permanently cloded by the owner of that private property. The bridge has been removed and the acces from the street is blocked with a big fence. If you access the area, the are signs telling you that Violators are finet with THB 20.000....
