Honestly there's really nothing that great. What is interesting however is the difference between low and high tide. At low tide, you can walk the sands to the steps. At "half-tide", you can still thread the water and it'll come up to your tighs (I'm 1.57m thereabout). At high tide you can't even see the steps. Apart from this, there... More

Willy's Rock is a uniquely-shaped rock right in the center of White Beach, and as I was staying at Estacio Uno right opposite the rock, I had a view of the rock all the time. Took a walk up the rock (there are stairs to climb), but you would need to navigate the waves first.

This is really nothing special, not sure why it is so popular. Yes it's attractive enough, but the people climbing all over it in an effort to get their picture taken detracts greatly from the quality of the experience. Still, it's worth a quick look as you wander the length of White Beach.

Willy’s Rock is a small rock formation that has become the landmark of Boracay. It’s by the great white sand beach of Station 1. A lot of people want to take photos on top of it, where a statue of Mother Mary is. There’s a short narrow open staircase with metal steps (less than 20 steps) to get to the... More

People rave about this place but its really just average. Spend 10 minutes there and you are done. It is starting to get a little run down as well. Easy access so, why not go snap a few pictures and move on.

It still a fixture of White beach. But better take your pictures really early in the morning as it is one of the favorite spots for people to have their photo's taken. It used to look really good but not anymore...
