    Best sunset views over Coron
    The view from uphill is amazing - especially at sunset! It’s a steep climb, but very much worth it. You have a great view of the bay and the town below. Id recommend bringing along some drinks/snacks and sitting on the top of the hill to enjoy the sunset.

    Can you do 720 stair steps?
    We took the 720 step challenge to climb to the Mount Tapyas Viewpoint. It is recommended that you do it either early in the morning or later in the evening. We started our climb at 4:30pm, and it was still 87F with high humidity, but we wanted to do it and get back to our hotel before it got dark. You'll want to take advantage of the many rest stops along the way, and bring a good sized bottle of water or Gatorade on your way up. It is worth the sweat and sore legs to make it to the top, as you can see the entire town of Coron and the surrounding islands. Not recommended for people who have heart or breathing issues.

    Lots of steps!
    A looooong 734 step walk to the top. There are shaded seated areas every 150 or so steps, thankfully! View from the top is worth the hike. It does show the lesser seen areas of Coron, like the shanty areas. There’s a big crucifix at the top and a CORON sign that lights up at night.

    Stair master madness with spectacular views!
    I conquered Mt Tapyas in Coron – more than 720 steps of stair-master madness! Night climb for starry views, morning climb for sunrise bliss. The panorama up there was totally worth the sore muscles. Pro tip: Bring water and towels you'll thank me after conquering those steps!

    Great view
    720+ steps but well worth the effort. We walked up for the sunset and definitely didn’t disappoint us. The view up the top is amazing :) Average fitness needed. The concrete steps are all in tack with steel rails either side so very safe. If you can and have the time while staying in Coron it’s a must do. Enjoy

Getting to the top is very simple: you just go up 750 steps. For a foot person it is a piece of cake. For an average person it is very doable. For an overweight/unfit person it may need a couple of stops.
No matter your physical condition, it is totally worth it. We went a bit late as we were on a boat trip until 4:30 and missed the sunset, but it was still 100% worth the effort.

Attended here with my wife on the 14th of January around 9.20am. Both unfit at the time but still managed to get to the top with rest stops along the way. At the time the humidity was not to bad and there was a slight breeze going up also not alot of 'panget' loud and selfie selfie look at me tourists.

Well worth the hike for the views at the top. Not a race like other people have posted ohhhhh i did it in 10 minutes.......good for you.👏👏👏👏.

Take your time and enjoy the views halfway up. Also remember to bring water, mozzie repellant a hat and sundscreen.

As a fairly fit, solo travelling quinquagenarian, I managed the 700 plus steps (721), with but little more effort necessary than a broad smile.

Unless you are unusually unhealthy, you should have no problems ascending the summit, just give yourself sufficient time and enjoy the climb. And yes, the view at sunset is beautiful, especially when shared with that someone special.

Once at the top, there are other paths you can follow which lead off from the summit which, can extend your stay there considerably should you wish and have the time to spare.

Only a few negatives to note.

Lot's of very young and persistent vendors, mostly selling water or plain old tat (rubbish), plotted along the climb.

As the summit is crowned by a white Catholic Cross, seeing it used by the odd camera-happy tourist as a climbing frame was I thought, more than a little disrespectful.

Overall, if and when it Coron, it really is a rather 'Must-do'!

As always, happy and safe travelling.

We counted 754 steps in total from the street at the bottom. 3 of us started out, but we had to leave our travelling companion at about the 400 step mark, as she could not make it any further. It is quite a steep climb. Well worth the effort, with great views from the top.
We walked from the Port of Colon, where our cruise ship was docked, into town and then up to Mt Tapyas. When we got back down to the street at the start of the Mt Tapyas climb there was a tricycle cruising around, so we caught that back to the port. He stated a fare of 40 pesos per person, which was cheaper than the fare quoted at the port to get to the Mt Tapyas hike. I gave him 150 for the 3 of us.

This is a great place for sunset view in Coron. You need to climb about 721 steps to reach the top. Took us about 12-15 mins leisurely. The view up here is awesome and this is a great place for sunset. Free entrance.

Just so you know, this is not an easy climb. There are a lot of stairs, so bring water. that being said, the view from the top is worth it. Not just looking out to see the sunset, but the rest of the 360 degrees is quiet nice. Again, totally worth it, but it's a bit of a climb...
