burgos coast - ilocos norte

it seemed to me like a place of an unifinished artwork and great rock carvings. it looks denuded but majestic. Ilocos Norte's coastlines are among the most beautiful in Luzon.just right after that rough road ride, we have to trek along Burgos coastal area to reach the Kapurpurawan rock formation. walking downhill was already easy as they already made cemented walkway down.a mere15-minute walk will actually be longer, as one can't resist stopping and be awed by its great topography. so rugged and remote. similar to the ones seen in the island of Capones.sea bonsais all around the place, typical sea rock formations holding small bodies of water with weird foamy materials that looks so much like the ones in the Death Marshes in the Lord of the Rings.rocks formed by nature through time makes this place one of my favorite. a haven for landscape photographers. there was more to explore around but we were so eager to be at the white rock wonder which was a view away from where we were.up next the Kapurpurawan rock formations. Ilocos Norte's own natural wonder.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I haven't had explore the coastlines in the Northern Luzon so I didn't know how beautiful it is until I saw your photos.
It looks like not in the Philippines but it is. We should be proud of our country. We have lots of beautiful sights to offer.
Superb din ang pagkakuha ng mga photos. Galing, galing...

the best tlga ilocos! hehehe.. even my prof was mesmerized by its natural beauty. and i quote him. "ilocos has the best terrain because it is complete. it has the mountains and hills on the east, the plains in the middle and the coast on the west."

This place looks so unadulterated. I can even see strange faces/images on the rock formation (not in an eerie way).

I wished I had spent more time in the coastal areas of Northern Luzon when I was working there! I didn't know I missed so much.
