The Kapurpurawan: Limestone Formation

From Cape Bojeador, we headed our journey to Kapurpurawan. Hidden beauty from the city. Hidden because you have to walk 200 to 350 meters to get there. And I'm telling you, its worth the sacrifice! This is one of my most favorite place here in Ilocos.

Nakapayong
Kapurpurawan is derive from the word "puraw" which means white in the local Ilocano dialect, so kapurpuran means whiteness or in tagalog "kaputian". Looks like spinx, di ba?


They say that it is a limestone, a rock formation. And I think that from the past this place is covered by the sea. And due to some natural process like earthquakes, soil erosion, sedimentation, climate change etc., this become as beautiful as this....paradise! As of my opinion only! Because of its beauty, it's now fast becoming one of the most favorite attractions in Ilocos aside from its grand Churches, delicacies and beaches.


Sexy giant, huh
love it
When you reached Kapurpurawan, it's like you're stepping in a chalk bed or large size of chalk, precious white akin to the waves of the sea

Whitey stone
Visit this place if you're in Ilocos....
