Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is one of the suggested place to visit by the locals here. According to our tour guide (Ryan) Kapurpurawan stands for white. So yeah as expected we see a white rock! When we went there they are offering us a horse ride on the way to the rock formation itself. So we try their offer which is... More

Kapurpurawan rock formation is a Phil.wonder of nature. It is an exceptional rock formation along the shoreline of Burgos, Ilocos Norte. Some tourists dare to climb the rock formation for better picture taking..For those who wouldnt want to climb the rock, there's a viewing deck that offers nice sea view. This site is after the Cape Bojeador, but is still... More

The view is awesome with the white rock, the clear blue sea and the windmills. Definitely a must in your itinerary. Try horsebackriding take a panoramic shot and you'll have a picture perfect view of Ilocos, less the photobombers (a lot of tourists in this place especially during summer).

Trek down towards the beach and walk along a path towards the rock formation, or you could do horse back riding. The rock formations are quite amazing, and when combined with the backdrop of the crashing waves or the green hills with the windmills, it's an amazing panorama of nature's beauty! It actually feels like you're not in the Philippines!

The portion featured in photos of this place used to be big. But because of natural forces, it has become smaller. So before it vanishes, go and see it. "Puraw" is an Ilocano word that literally means white. It is named as such because of its appearance. Kapurpurawan Rocks is a wonder of nature. Great for picture-taking.

At first, we thought that we're not allowed to go to the rock formation itself but there's a local/tour guide who told us that we can go there and take some photo. He (the tour guide) is very kind and he also took photo for us. He is great in taking pictures, he knows what and where's the nice angle.... More

Overall, it was a sweaty experience. At the starting point, there are offers to rent hats and umbrellas. Hats at 10 pesos. Umbrellas I don't know. I suggest you rent both if you don't have any sun protection. We were there at 10:30 am and the sun was extremely hot. The view is great but I wouldn't say amazing. They... More
