Willy's Rock

Willy's Rock is the most photographed landmark on Boracay. This Gothic castle-like volcanic formation is located in Station One and dominates the White Beach seascape. Facing the beach is a grotto which contains a statue of the Virgin Mary. During high-tide, you can wade out in shallow waters approximately one hundred meters to Willy's Rock, but on low-tide, you can just walk right thru it and even climb on the stairs leading to the Grotto. On top, you will have a commanding view of the White Beach and also Panay Island on the distant horizon.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Very cool! I'm kinda torn in deciding if that's a good place to share or a good place to be alone, though. I guess either would work depending on the circumstances ;-)
