It was a very cold day but the sun is shining so bright that you may need an umbrella or something to hide your face from the scorching heat of the sun. It's best to go here at around 8am or even earlier. I think this is the best place to catch the sun rise. There will be a long... More

The rock formation overlooks some windmills, which makes for awesome multi-purpose and multi-site photo ops. We walked about a kilometer before we got to the rock formations under the scorching heat of the sun but it was all worth it!

April 1, 2015. On our 2nd roadtrip to Ilocos Norte after 5 years we made sure we wouldn't miss the road turn to Kapurpurawan Rock. The paved road to the site was lined with windmills & the power generating facility of the province can be viewed from this area. BTW, a community tax of P15.00 per head will be collected... More

Great place for photos. Very windy, which I suppose what caused the unique formations of the rocks. The t-shirts and other souvenirs are fairly cheap, when converting from US dollars to Philippine pesos.

Have to walk a distant to see the rock formation but it was worth it. This place should be included in your itinerary once you wanted to travel in Ilocos.

When we first went to Ilocos Norte we failed to visit kapurpurawan due to time constraint, so when we are given the second time to go to Ilocos we really did visit this attraction. The hike going to this majestic rock formation is definitely worth it because when we got near the rock formation it got us speechless. Very good... More

Definitely worth a stop to take some pictures, it's picturesque and the ocean background with the rock formation is beautiful.

My family took the PAL flight to Laoag and the Mabuhay magazine had the cover of this place. We were all excited to see this for real! We were not disappointed at all. The only thing I find "strange" or out of place was the sculptures by artists going to that place. Natural beauty must be left alone and human... More

Never been thought that this was an island before. But before going into this place you'll need a tour guide, and a little patience because it was really a long long walk. But all the struggles had been vanished because the view is superb and the gigantic rock formation is pretty stunning.!
