Located in the northwestern tip of Ilocos Norte, Kapurpurawan rock formation is an ocean-made sculpture. Its creamy white limestone formations were created by thousands of years of oceanic and weather forces. Its name Kapurpurawan originated from the Ilocano word ‘puraw’ which means white, holding true to its creamy white rocks.

User Comments

The name itself describes how enchanting this place is, Kapurpurawan means "white" in Ilocano, and I can definitely say that this place is one of the purest and majestic place I have ever seen. It is a mixture of the four elements that makes Kapurpurawan wonderful. You'll see how the strong waves hugs the astonishing rock formations and the cool and fresh breeze whispers to you while you are under the scorching lovely heat of the sun! This for me is by far the most wonderful creation from our nature. - Renzo Baylon
