Not quite sure what they fuss is. There is a set of stairs that leads up to a statue of Mary. Maybe for Catholics, it would be more impressive, but to me, its just a few rocks on the beach.

It's a rock with Mama Mary's statue. Shallow and clear water, fine white beach and tourists are picture taking :)

Willy's Rock attracted me to Boracay. It feels like a holy place to be in. Peaceful. Great spot to take photo too !

We stayed at Willy's Beach Club, which is right outside the rock. Pretty neat, though heavily traveled. Lots of wildlife - crabs, fish, living shells, etc

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. :)
