Just a few distances from Bangui Windmills you could already reach the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in Burgos. You have to take a long walk before you could reach the main area. The trail is also not that easy as you have to go down steep and walk about hundred meters. Along you will pass a vine tunnel and a trail... More

The beauty of this place was unbelievable. I couldn't believe what my eyes witnessed. This is really something worth visiting. The hike to visit the white formation was worth it. I recommend not to rent a horse going there because the experience will be more fulfilling and there are nice views that you will see if you hike. Just take... More

The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation was formed for almost a thousand years ago forming in this beautiful coast of Burgos fronting the Bangui Bay. The best time to go here is in the morning to get a beautiful glimpse of the "puraw" (white) rock sparkling in the sun. Well, aside from meeting the crowd. It requires a little bit of trek... More

Due to time constraints, we were not able to get to see the rock formation up close. But even so, it looks majestic from afar, I bet it looks even better up close. The rock is a bit far so you'll have to walk or rent a horse. But if you opted to stay, you can always order an empanada.... More

Kapurpurawan Rock Formation is located along Bangui Bay in Burgos. Getting there takes a 15 minute walk along the rocky shore. Fret not, there's a pathway for tourists. One can even horseback to see this natural wonder of white colored rocks sculpted by the wind and waves over time.

For the third time I visited it, it still feels like a first time. I'm in awe the whole time just looking at this amazing rock formation. It's nice that there are windmills as background now. They also make the path way easier for tourists. It's just makes me sad to see people not respecting this, some are climbing to... More

On our itinerary Kapurpurawan rock formation is second on our list, our first destination was Bangui Windmills which is not that too far away from our next destination. After reaching our destination we walked for about 5-10 minutes to reach the place where rocks are naturally formed and sculpted by nature. You will be amazed by how these rocks are... More
