Boracay’s most recognizable attraction is this oddly shaped volcanic formation topped by a statue of the Virgin Mary.

Not sure if this is natural or man-made. Good for a photo shoot. But its a cool place to visit. Easily accessible on both high and low tides.

Drop by if you're in station 1 but its not something I would go out of my way for. Sunset is great in this place though.

Beautiful religious spot in a beautiful beach. Serves as the "guardian"of the island. The grotto serves to remind every vacationeer not to forget to be grateful for the Graces of God which allowed them to visit one of the world's best beaches...

Still not sure why it's called Willy's Rock but still worth a visit, we walk around it which only took a few minuets not much more to say about it

Located in front of the Willy's Beach Hotel. You can climb the stairs to have a peek of the Virgin Mary statue. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes of your time.

Really nice view on sunset. You will find many restaurants on the beach where you can enjoy a cocktail in the evening.

Not so alluring to see this aince it ia so crowded when we visited this place. The best time to come here maybe is in the morning.

These rock formations are very distinct and identifies the prominent side of the island and is central to the white sand beaches.

Just a naturally occurring formation, easily accessible at low tide. A draw because of it's unique location. Tourist photo op.

Selfies- the place is great for photo ops. Also a nice place to just contemplate or reflect.
