“One of the best things to do in Coron, and the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen.”

Mount Tapyas is well worth the 700 step hike to the top! Do the hike and don't get a tricycle. It's not as hard as it sounds, especially if you wait until after 5pm when it gets a little cooler, and will make it to the top in lots of time to see the beautiful sunset over Coron Bay. It's so stunning at the top with an amazing vista of Coron town, the bay and the countless peaks and islands. Do the full circle around the top and don't just stick to the viewing area, you will see a couple of different views, each bathed in a different coloured light. We both agreed it was the most beautiful sunset we had experienced. There is a lovely atmosphere at the top too with local children playing and laughing. It was such a great experience, we did the hike up the next night too. Just one word of advice, if it's a cloudy evening, the sunset won't be as good, try to do it on a clear night and it will be spectacular.

I almost gave up on this place about 200 steps before the peak! Hahaha! The view was breathtaking, literally because of the 750++ steps you have to take before you get there! It was well worth it though.

My wife and I hiked up the 700 steps and took plenty of pictures. Just bring some cold water with you. Plenty of places to stop on the way up.
Wonderful panoramic views of Coron while on top. No need to book this with a tour. We didn't have time to hike this at sunset but if I had the time, I think it would have been even more awesome.

The walk was all stairs and well maintained. It took about 45 minutes to reach the top, and the path is directly in the sun, so make sure to cover up or lather on the block. Stunning views from the top of Coron and the surrounding areas. A must do in the evening for sunset.

We were able to challenge the 700 steps of Mt Tapyas. Though it was very tiring indeed, to see the sunset on the top is jaw dropping. Overlooking Coron is a sight to behold.
