Good place to take pictures

A good place to take lots of pictures. Beautiful scenery. When it is low tide you will be able to walk over to the rocks and take more pictures.

The place is crowded during sunset (if you are in Boracay during the peak season). Crowded but tolerable. You will still find a spot for you and your company.

Many pictures of Boracay feature Willy's rock so it was nice to finally see it for real. There is a little shine dedicated to Our Lady there. One can walk around and have a good view over the beach, good for pictures

Amazing sunset to see. Clear waters, white sand and not that crowded area. Close to Jonahs Fruitshake, great! Nice place to see in Bora!

this rock is already a landmark in station 1.. definitely a place to visit and to have your pictures taken. if you're from station 2 or 3, this is a bit far but the view is worth it. and youll pass by jonah's fruitshake on the way here too..

Willy's Rock has a Grotto with a statue of Our Lady in it and sits on the top of a rock outcrop. There are several other rocks surrounding the grotto with a palm tree on top and several other small trees on the top of each rock. It is accessible at low and high tide and there is a continuous...

When the tide is low, the whole place is totally revealed. A fantastic place for photo ops, and a nice decoration in middle of this wonderful long white beach

It's serene, pretty, and just a lovely place to walk into by the beach. Especially very early in the morning. My second time in boracay but first time to walk here. It was raining a bit at 530 am. Few people jogging by the beach, some dogs walking and early workers selling their stuff along the way. You could see... More

Really interesting place, a grotto on the beach! Not gaudy, but really nice to visit. It is situated off the beach, but just a few metres out into the ocean. It had about 20 steps up to the statue of the virgin. Well worth the climb.
