We checked the grotto to take pictures at about 10am. We were looking for the sandcastles but there were none at that time. They said the kids who were making them come in the afternoon but sad, we had to go back to Kalibo at 2pm. We missed that.

I love how it is situated in station1. Definitely worth the walk if you are coming from station 3 or elsewhere.

Wait until the tide is in and get some great photos of this iconic landmark on Boracay! We got some lovely photos at this spot. Time it right so there aren't heaps of people clamoring around it. ;)

One of the most recognizable place in Boracay. It was low tide when we visit, so got to see it closer. Lots of peple had their picture taken and I just can't resist it. The other side though, not next to the grotto. Need to visit!

As they say, you have not been in Boracay if you have not taken your picture at Willy's Rock. Best time to go there is during low tide, preferably in the late afternoon.

An icon sitting amongst crystal clear waters. Great landmark for the Station 1 region of Boracay Beach and near a fab hotel called Estacio Uno. Walk along to it just before sunset and enjoy the beautiful sights!

This is just a roc outcropping with a picturesque backdrop.. Nothing special about it other than that and a Virgin Mary statue on it

Nothing much about this Willy's Rock, Just can take pictures on it and that's it. It is also a landmark to tell you you are in station 1
