One of the island’s most amazing tourist spots is an epic viewpoint looking over hundreds or thousands (probably way more) of coconut trees that go on right up into the mountains.
Anyone who comes to Siargao will have this on their list of things to do. After all the Coconut Trees View Deck, also known as the Coconut Mountain View is on the way to other of Siargao’s tourist spots.

Our Experience at the Coconut Trees View Deck
Like anyone heading out of town in search of Siargao’s best tourist spots, the journey was bound to lead us along one of the island’s most stunning street.
Palm trees were dotted all the way and beside the paved road we saw a couple of farm houses with chickens or pigs or both running around.
But it wasn’t until we got to a bend at the top of a hill that we couldn’t believe what lay right before our eyes. A sea of leafy tropical trees going on for miles.
Actually, we found out that these were all coconut trees.
In many articles I have said that Siargao is entirely covered in coconut trees.
And if you landed on Siargao by air, you may already have a good understanding of it’s landscape.
But if not, Siargao Coconut Trees View Deck will give a perspective of what I mean.
While At the Siargao Coconut Trees View Deck
Everyone stops at the Coconut Mountain Viewpoint since it’s on the way to a number of other tourist attractions.
Locals prepare fresh snacks and sell them from little baskets or coolers.
We tried a sort of biscuit and cake. Both made with coconuts. I wasn’t surprised with that.
Above the viewpoint there is a small restaurant hanging off the edge of a mountain and looking directly onto the sea of coconut trees.
This is where we had a local breakfast with fried egg, sausage and fried ham.
Surprisingly we had the entire place and an epic view all to ourselves.
Not a sole came the entire time and we eventually got to know the owners and had an hour long conversation that was really interesting. They also gave us a list of things to do in Siargao that we had never even heard of before.
To our surprise, we learned that the coconut trees in Siargao are farmed and are an important source of income for many locals.
** These photographs don’t make justice to this incredible view. I have just started to learn about photography and these pics were only took with our phone.
How to get Around Siargao Island
With a scooter.
That is the best way to get yourself to Siargao’s best corners and all the tourist spots. Scooters and motorbikes are the main mode of transport for both locals and tourists.
Roads are good throughout the island.
In General Luna there are loads of motorbike rental shops and prices start at around 500 PHP ($10.41) per day. And the longer you keep it, the less the price per day.
However, we found the best prices in Dapa and paid 275 PHP ($5.72) per day for 7 days.
The ferry terminal is located in Dapa. Walk out of the ferry terminal and you’ll see a big sign for scooter rental.
An alternative for those who aren’t comfortable riding a scooter is to rent a tricycle with driver. This is the more expensive option and will cost 2000 PHP ($41.63) for the day.
Another option is to join Klook’s Siargao Land Tour. Check full details here.
