I know this could have been summarized in my road trip post, but I loved Kapurpurawan so much it had to have a dedicated area. If I could marry a place from the Philippines, this is it.
You walk down a hillside and through a palm tree tunnel to be greeted on the other side by locals who are offering pony rides! Yup, pony rides by the sea. How adorable is that?
The pony rides are only half the fun. The short trail leads right in front of the rocky shore that looks like something from a Mediterranean dream.
It didn’t remind me of an island beach, but more similar to pictures I’ve seen of various Greek beaches or even the British Isles. The white rocks, lush greenery and deep blue waters all made for such a stark contrast. There was even a wild horse grazing in the background for crying outloud!!
The beauty of Kapurpurawan felt like a vacation within a vacation. There have been beaches throughout my Philippine vacation that gave me a feeling of calm and serenity… this was not one of them. It made me feel alive and so energized.
