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.!

Definitely a must-see in the region. We were actually going to Bangui Windmills when we saw a lot of new windmills on top of the mountain and discover the way to Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. The place is truly breathtaking. I don't suggest riding the horses. Walk through the path and enjoy the scene.

Can't get enough of the view; One, two, three CLICK! Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is amazing, it is a great view for taking pictures. This is one of the tourist attraction in the Ilocos Region. You can ride horses to get to the rock formation for a reasonable price; it is a great experience! The people who will help you in... More

The road from the highway to the seaside is now cemented! It was not like this 4 years ago. There is an entrance fee. Windmills have been built along the road, making it a good spot for photos. At the bottom of the viewing deck, there are horses for hire to bring you to and from the limestone formation. It's... More

Natural limestone rocks carved by the wind and waves. Looking inland, one can see the base of the sierra madre mountains. Among these are newly built windmills, offering a surreal view. The minimal entry fee is worth it as one can visit the rock formation as well as see the windmills up close. Great place for photos.

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
