Picture spot

The place can be a must for those who like taking picture. Nevertheless, i love the water there as it is so clear and the sand is so soft!

Willy's Rock oddly protrudes from the long stretch of beach from Station 1 to Station 3 at Boracay Island. But it's a welcome diversion from just the beach. A Marian grotto is carved out here. Some areas are off limits.

Willy's Rock is what it is. But, lots of people go out to see it and if you get there in the morning you can get an unobstructed pic. During certain times of the year they have celebrations.

I'm at the airport now waiting for my flight. My husband and I have been in Boracay for a few days. Willy's Rock is a cute area in Station 1. This has a little shrine when you go up the steps. Nothing too exciting, but definitely something to do on the beach. I laid out on the beach while my... More

Lovely place to take photos. One will pass it if walking along the beach between station 1 and station 2. Other than picture taking, there is nothing else to do here.

Wade out & have a look at the little temple. The most I can say about this rock is that it offers some interest to the beach view

this is a nice little spot along the beach, maybe 50 meters out in shallow water, adds a nice touch to the open beach

It a big rock with a christian statue on it. The day i went there, i climbed the stairs and i smell a strong pee. Hopefully the tourist/locals take a good care of this place. Its a bit disgusting to smell such thing on this must visit rock since u can always pee on the sea instead . Lol
