At lunchtime on a weekday, few were walking at the north end of former Boat Station 1 as it was a sunny day and the sun's rays were searing.

Willy's Rock was an easy 40 second wade from the shoreline and given the rock provided shade, a welcome respite from the sun.

The rock is dedicated to Our Blessed Mother, Mary, the Mother of God. A good opportunity for a brief reflection and prayer.

Good restaurants such as Bama Grill (incorrectly called 'OBama Grill' by TA) are along the beach.

The mere sight of this location will make you realize how beautiful nature really is. Even had a rainbow this early Monday morning. It's really a fascinating sight.

Should really be awesome if you could only take photos without other people around. I don't think it 's never without people crowding the place. It's a must-see!!!

This is a very beautiful interesting cultural stop and a great place for photos. The sand around the beach is white powder that feels great on your feet.

This is Boracay islands most important landmark. Specifically for station 1. Come in the early morning when it is on low tide and has fewer tourists. Nice thing about it is that it is free. Statue of the Virgin Mary adorns this landmark. So this good for the majority Catholic population and those who might just be interested.

You'll often see this small rock formation featured on most postcards of Boracay. It is very accessible during low tide, when you can climb it without needing to wade in the waters and have your photo taken with a small grotto with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary inside. Willy's Rock definitely offers a good background for photo shoots on the island's station 1.

Located in station 1, this is a nice place for a morning walk or late afternoon, sunset walk. You can stroll right along the beach and have your photo near the grotto. Another instagammable area in Boracay

It is a rock which has Virgin Mary on the top. Surrounded by an eye-catching view of the green waters, this place is an excellent photography spot.
