Mt Tapyas, Coron

4.5
#4 of 25 in Parks in Coron
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.

  • Leave early, take water but enjoy. It has some fantastic views from the top and was actually not that busy. At the back are also some stunning views and you can carry on a mini hike if you feel up to it. Definitely worth doing whilst on Coron. Oh and take your litter with you.
  • 721 steps going up! Best to go before sun goes down. Perfect view to watch the sunset.
  • The 700+ stairs up are no joke! We definitely needed a break every day 150 steps! It was also pretty sunny and humid. There is some shade and trees but I would bring a towel in case you perspire like me 😁 Sellers are lined up along the steps for water proof bags, selfie sticks etc. But once you get to the top, the views are amazing! Nice panorama of Coron island! Going down is much easier 😅
  • Very good place to exercise and amazing sunset view! Worth it! bring water and will power :)
  • A nice place for tourist taking photos as well as for local to exercise. Staircase all the way up from bottom to deck view. But onwards a bit uneven trail. I think is about 30-45 min from one end to the other end. Is a great place for sunset as well as sunrise
