Mountain Nature / Park
A dramatic backdrop to a small coastal town, Mt Tapyas serves as a popular viewpoint and offers sweeping panoramas over the surrounding islands. Follow the signs from town and begin the trek up the marked pathways, which feature paved stairways and trails. Climb the approximately 700 steps to the top and you'll find the mountain's summit accented by a giant metal cross. From there, you' can enjoy unobstructed views of the island, the bay, and the rugged coastline, dense with jungle vegetation.
