during high tide you can go snorkling and watch some sea creatures swimming or crawling around the rock. Nothing special about this rock though.

This is literally an attraction of a rock or landmark that represents boracay! It happens to be near station 1 and it would be best to visit there either in the morning or at the sunset where the picture shots taken would look amazing!

It is located along Station 1. Beach goers love getting their pictures taken on top of the rock but we didn't try because it is too slippery. I'm not really sure what is so special about it though.

it's a famous landmark in Boracay, that is why if you want to take really good pictures, better be in this area early in the morning. There are not much tourists hovering and taking pictures as well. Just be ready to wade in knee deep waters. :)

As the Title Goes! The Rock is partly submerged in water on High Tide . On Low Tide , you can climb it. It's quite interesting watching the view with the tricks of nature. It's right in front of Willy's and Nigi Nigi Too.

So we had to walk a long way from station 2 just to get to this rock. The stairs leading up the Mary statue is broken so be careful. Best if you stop along the way and take pictures of the lined up small boats for paraw.

The view is quite captivating if you take a picture of Willy's rock when the sun is rising or setting and when the tide is high. There is a statue of Mother Mary up on the rock which is quite special about it. Most tourists que to climb up while others settle to pose on the bottom. I enjoyed seeing... More

Boracay's icon and must photo op with. You will not miss this if you walk up north along the White Beach. Nothing special, nothing fancy. If you're a devout Catholic, pass by and pray. Other wise just take a picture and post it online.

Cute chapel on the beach, nice to take pictures but please also pay respect. Amazing view during clear sunset.
