A coconut is a fruit and a nut. So the answer is both.
Short Answer: Yes. Many people mistake that the coconut is a fruit but when the coconut is "born" is has many qualities of a fruit. Many people may also mistake the coconut as a nut but as the coconut matures it gains nut properties. Surprisingly the coconut is a seed. The coconut tree, Cocos nucifera, produces a nut that is the fruit of the tree and also the seed. Each nut will produce one seedling in favourable conditions.

Coconut meat is the white part of the coconut inside the coconut. For most people this is the only way they know coconut, the coconut meat. The actual fruit is a hard shelled nut with "milk" inside the center of the nut. The "meat" is the white sweet edges of the inside of the shell.
The coconut is not a botanical nut, it's a fruit, so I don't think you can have nut allergies towards it.
