Literally... If you go to Boracay, you'll end up there anyway. Very picturesque place, so give a shot as everybody else for a picture. Have a swim too, cause around it the water isn't deep, and is super hot (but like in many places in the country). You feel like in a bath ! Enjoy !

I went around 6am in the morning it was the best time to enjoy Will'ys rock though the waves were a bit strong. I enjoyed walking the shore of Boracay just to reach at the willy's rock. I had a great time on my amateurn photo shoot.Awesome rock with grotto of Mama Mary

This rock is awesome to say a prayer to Mary and take in a great shot of the sunset. It does get very crowded at sunset.

This is an outcropping of rock with stairs to go to a Virgin Mary(I think). It is great for pictures but I don't think it is worth an extra trip to see it. It was on our way from Seawind to D*Mall so we viewed it everyday.

We stayed at Nigi Nigi Too so this was right outside our hotel and the view from our room. It is nature at its best, a pure white beach and this lovely rock formation to add to the vista.

Perfect for sunset photos. I just hope that guests respect the spot and do not leave their trash at the rock.

After emerging from Diniwid Beach cove, you can already see this rock formation jutting out from the beach at Station 1. It's not only great for photos and selfies, but is also a good gauge of where you are and how far you are from Station 1. Make sure to take your pics here :)

Just on the White Beach, it a small rock formation, and statue of Mother Mary. Good spot for photography, very clean water and you can spot small fish around this rock.
