The Natural Beauty of Kapurpurawan Rock Formation

I’m pretty sure that you already saw Kapurpurawan Rock Formation photos that posted on the ads wall of Manila Metro Rail Transit System also known as MRT.  The ad banner features Ilocos tourism campaign "Paoay Kumakaway" showing two beautiful Filipina with the background of white rock formations..

Kapurpurawan Rocks is one of the must-see destinations in Ilocos province. It is located in the rocky coast of Burgos, Ilocos Norte. You will take about 3km away from the Hi-way and 5-10 mins trek/walk from the drop off area. There is also horseback riding available in the area that will take you to the rock formations. The horseback riding charge about P100.

In Ilocano, “Kapurpurawan” or "puraw" means white. Most of the rocks formations are shaded by sparkling white in color. This beautiful tourist spot was created by forces of wind, water and waves from the ocean.  In Science, it is a sedimentary rock formed by sedimentation, where the deposition of particles carried by fluid flow, created rocks on diff. shapes and formations.

We are blessed for this amazing work of nature. Looking those rock formations and the big oceans took away all my stress. I love the feeling of being free and away from busy metro. The breath-taking scenery of the ocean adds beauty of the place. It’s really relaxing.

According to one of the guides in the area, they closed one part Kapurpurawan Rocks because there were some tourists doing vandalism on the rock formations. Pls. Pls. Pls. STOP writing anything on the rocks.  For your eyes ONLY! Let’s preserve the natural beauty of this place.
