The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is one of its kind in the country. There may be some other unique rock formations but this one stands on its own character. Just wondering how come that that bird-like head structure remains on the platform with the rest of it was diminished by time with the whips of the wind and the sea? The... More

At first I thought the rock formation was only man-made (LOL..how gullible...) But then, once I saw the formation, all that I was aiming for was to be right beside it. Only that tourists are no longer allowed since the local gov't are afraid the rock would collapse since the texture is more like how sand castles were built. We... More

I was really amazed with the rock formation. I was imagining how they were made. I love the air. And i enjoyed taking photos in this place.

Prepare for the intense heat as you walk about 1 km to the rock formations. The view is a must see for any avid traveler photographer. It was a good thing that they enforced measures to protect the tourist spot such as prohibition of food in the area and employing people to watch over the place. Like what the previous... More

This is a rock formation that is white, hence the name kapurpurawan. Puraw is ilokano for white. From the parking area, there's a 10 minute leisurely walk. The road is paved and even so it's a comfortable hike with plenty of photo opportunities because of the nice scenery. For people who want to go beyond the rock rock formation, they... More

It is a very nice place to visit. The rock formation is beautiful and very photogenic. It is better to go there when the sun is not too harsh on the skin and better leave before the night falls because the road is not cemented and has no streetlights. Also, bring your water and food because it is expensive to... More

Kapurpurawan was not really one of our destinations when we went to Ilocos Norte, however some of our local friends recommended that we visit it even for a while. When we got there, strong wind and excruciating heat welcomed us. Then as we walk towards the site, green moss like and blue sea beheld our eyes. The rock formations were... More

The emerging tourist destination up north called Kapurpurawan Rock formations does not only offer a wide and very picturesque ground, but also presents an area where you can experience blowing winds and the sand of crashing waves that are welcome experiences for weary travelers. If the LGU there can create rest or viewing areas onsite, which will not disrupt or... More

Pros - unique rock formation; wonderful seaside view; very good and well-paved road access from the main highway; watch out for the upcoming view of windmills currently being built in the area; very nice access from end of road to the rock formation (loved the walk under the bushes/vines and the sound of birds chirping); very nice and courteous local...
