Sadly, the local government prohibited the tourists and even the Locales to enter and climb the rock formation because the site is gradually falling apart for several reasons: weather disturbances, irresponsible tourists and vandalism. But as I stood there for five minutes, I can’t stop myself of saying, WOW, truly magnificent!

The one and only rock formation is interesting to look at and the windmills are cool too, but there really isn't anything to do here. At least the admission is only 15 pesos, because that's about all it's worth. After a 5 minute walk, you can't actually go near the rock formation, you can only take pictures of it from... More

This was the highlight of our tour and I truly love the place. Perfect view with new windmills in the background. I found the sight relaxing with blue sky and the breeze of fresh air. The long walks and enduring the heat of the sun was all worth it. The horseback riding was also fun.

went there around 9am and the heat of the sun is almost unbearable. reaching the rock formation is no joke, slow to normal walk would take more or less 20 minutes to reach. to support the locals we rode a small horse guided by the owner at a reasonable rate of 100 php per horse...the time was shortened to 5...

I agree that the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is a must-visit site in Ilocos Norte. The rugged walk under the scorching sun is well worth the effort. Though access to the famous rock formation fronting the sea is off limits to tourists, there is a deck where you could enjoy the view and take pictures from. There is also a path... More

A sign shows the way to Kapurpurawan rock formation. Its an interesting place to see but be aware that even on a sunny day the wind can be a bit rough there. No area for high-heel-lovers. Better use solid shoes there. Beside of watching those stunning rocks horse-riding is offered.

One of the best that Ilocos has to offer, the sun is scourging hot during summer but the view will be the one to take your breath away. They built viewing decks for pictures in front of the rock formation. Getting near is forbidden now because the Rocks are made of hardened sand, so the local government is trying to... More

I can truly say that this spot is awesomely good because my 3 year old kid enjoyed being there as much we did! We arrived around 10 AM and so it was hot, but then the wind helped in easing the discomfort. The view is superb like I can seat there for a day enjoying the sea breeze and watching... More
