I've been looking forward to seeing this attraction, and I'd say I enjoyed the good view and long walk. A local tour guide was helpful with photo-taking suggestions.

A variation from the other spots tourists are interested in. This rock formation could only be a side trip from the main intention to see the wind turbines. But not bad, it is even a way to rest and view for few minutes and breath fresher air.

We arrived at 130pm and it was scortching hot. I recommend to take a horseback service back and forth to the rocks, especially if you visit in the middle of the day! Be sure to bring your umbrellas, to avoid getting sun burn. The place is very picturesque, ideal location for a photoshoot. The rocks were ok and a good... More

The visit was part of a tour of the northern part of Ilocos Norte. The place has beautiful of nature.. from the sea to mountain, to rock formation... and windmills as part the attraction. It was hot when we made the visit. But it is always a relaxing view to see the mountain and the sea altogether.

Went there during holy week and the place was crowded. Disappointed with what I saw. For me, it's not worth it.

It will be hot! Pour on sunblock and put on the hats and wear comfortable clothes and sturdy shoes. but the place is beautiful. It tugs at your heart strings for a reason i cannot fathom, it just does. The rock formations are lovely, please take the time to breathe it in, enjoy a leisurely pace, savoring every spot. I...

In entering the area, you would not know what to expect, but you pay the Admission Free to a person who somehow exudes the feeling that this is some kind of a racket and drive on. Along the grassy wayside, you just might see some grubby~looking little horses like female gnus or wildebeests sans beards, then you will reach the... More

The windwills surrounding the area are an added attraction as they are really gigantic. Go take a walk to the other side of the rock formation so you could take a nice background of your photo captured by the guard who will allow you to climb the white rock with some scattered of vegetation. Be sure to remove your shoes... More

This area has a small collection of limestone rock formation where you can take good pictures. You need to pay a separate 300php tricycle fee to get here. Locals sell drinks and snacks nearby with a small assortment of souvenirs. Well worth a visit but do it early am as it gets very hot in the area.

The rock formations are certainly not a wow, especially if you come from a country where sea cliffs are a feature. Here some of the dark rock has eroded to expose white rock shapes, one which is similar to a genie's lamp. The short walk along the coast to reach the formations is pleasant enough, although the wind farm does... More
