Mt. Tapyas offers a bird’s eye view of the island of Coron. You can also experience and watch the sunset which by the way is an amazing experience. It’s a first for me on a mountain so it’s definitely one for the books! If there’s anything that you shouldn’t miss on the town proper tour, this should be it. We didn’t go to any other town tour because we’re not in the mood for it, even the Maquinit hot springs because we think it would be tourist infested and admit it, sometimes you don’t get to enjoy a certain place because it’s too crowded, right?
For someone who loves sunsets, but not trekking or climbing a mountain like I do, Mt. Tapyas is worth the effort. 700 plus steps for a breathtaking view? I’m in!
What’s good is that there’s a concrete staircase, rails, and benches where you can stop and rest a bit.
Now if Mt. Tapyas is on your list, this might help you prepare for it.

Just in time for sunset and a few minutes to take photo shoots plus
1. Bottled water or Gatorade
Tip: there are vendors at the foot of the mountain where you can buy
2. Camera or any photography gear
3. A small bag for all your stuff
4. Sunblock! A must!
I honestly didn’t wore an appropriate outfit especially the choice of foot wear haha
Instead of flip flops which has the highest chance of tearing/ripping, it’s better to wear rubber shoes for comfortability.
I wouldn’t recommend a denim shorts either so opt for something with a lightweight cotton for ease of movement
You can always wear anything just make sure you’ll be comfortable
You’re going to climb 700 plus steps and it would be challenging if you are not always exercising or working out.
One of the best ways to watch the sunset. Mt. Tapyas, Coron
