we missed some attractions because we wanted to visit this place ... and it was really worth it ... the view was awesome even from afar ... didn't mind the long travel from manila ... would definitely come back and stay longer to visit the other attractions of Ilocos Norte ...

These are rock formations created by forces of the ocean on the rocky coast of Burgos, located just a few minutes further from the lighthouse. Travel info at: anzie hend mutter .blog spot .com

Beautiful scenes of the beach. Ride the horse if you don't like to walk to the rock formation. Suggest to bring drinking water as the weather is muggy and hot, otherwise there are vendors to buy from.

The rock is very beautiful, BUT from the starting point, you have to walk 300 meters of steep stairs downwards and a long long rocky path towards the actual site under the heat of the sun (you should go there early in the morning). Being a Senior I had to turn back halfway and content myself with taking a distant... More

Long walk before the rock formation. Better visit early because it is way too hot. Umbrellas can be rented. Even with the umbrella, the heat was just unbearable. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water. Horseback riding is also available if you don't want to walk. It costs Php100. I was told that people used to take picnics on the rock formation.... More

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.
