Enjoyed going around the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. Nice backdrop for pictures. Around the rock formation, you'll also find the new windmills. So if you don't want to go to the Bangui windmills, you can just visit this area. The windmills here look the same as the ones in Bangui anyway.

As expected our guests had this "success" feeling after riding on a horse going to this site. Whenever we're personally touring guests here at Ilocos (or even our guide/s). We make sure offering them horse riding. It ranges from Php70-100 round trip. Pretty nice experience espc our guests who have their kids. TIP Try their empanada but ensure buying early.... More

Recently, the Ayala Corporation has built 50 new windmills around the area. So, not only do you get to take pictures of the rock formation, you can also bask in the glory of these gigantic windmills in rows. Perfect place to take photo shoots. My sister even said one of her shots of the place looked like it was from... More

the majestic rock formation was definitely a beauty. I never thought we could have this kind of attraction here in Philippines. the big splashy waves were surreal and the shallow area nearby makes you want to take a dip because of the crystal blue water. defintely, must visit.

Just another attraction to take beautiful photos of the limestone formations. Known for its white and streamlined limestone formations, which have been sculpted by different oceanic and weather forces. Refreshments and snacks can be bought at the entrance but please don't throw your trash/es just anywhere in the place. Souvenirs are available at the entrance place as well. Horse-back riding...

Prepare you P20 for an entrance fee and if your a student, i advice you bring your school ID to avail a student rate of P10. The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation has a breathtaking view. But before you can mesmerize with it, you have to walk down the narrow trail from the muddy parking area to the site. Be sure to... More

A simple winding path, rugged terrain all around, windmills peeking over ridges and an alabaster rock formation jutting out near the water line. Visiting this place bring on a tranquil and peaceful feeling. Just Php20 for adults and Php10 for students will bring you to the starting point of the trail. I don't suggest riding the horses, it'll just add... More

A ten minute walk or a 5 minute horse ride from the parking lot under the intense heat of the sun will worth it. Definitely your photograhpy skills will be tested here for one of your greatest captured moments. This rock formation is simply natures best!!!

I really feel blessed when I came to visit this place, it's really awesome how the rocks was shaped. I was overwhelmed by it's true beauty. Check the Banggi Windmills and Kabigan Falls when you visit there White beach is amazing too, Blue Lagoon and Dos Hermanos is worth a visit.

This was in Burgos, so expect to be charged a bit (if you go by tricycle) since this and Bangui windmills are different from the rest of the trip. From the parking lot, it's a good 10 minute walk downhill for you to reach the main path leading to Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. Since it rained the day before, we decided... More
