Wait for the low tide to feel the beauty. This is just in time before the closing of Boracay and I must say that you need to visit this iconic landmark specially for photo ops.

Take the walk it’s pretty. Get a drink at one of the local bars. Not as crowded. And it’s a good place to hang out if it starts to rain. So it’s not an attraction it’s a rock.

Just close to the sea and just a short knee dipping distance from the beach. Very enjoyable place for a group where you can swim around and spend a nice time.

3rd time I’ve visited Boracay, it has deteriorated from my initial visit in Nov 2016. There are many fine places, but the beaches are dirty and trash is all over, shop keepers and vendors don’t help the situation. Boracay was closed down by President Duterte...More

This is right of the coast of White Beach. It is easy to walk to. The water is shallow and clear. There are some steps to climb to see the religious monument.

Of course if visiting Boracay you have to see Willy's Rock. Just a rock but something to take a look at or a swim around. Have a San Mig at Willy's Resort & some calamaris fritos & enjoy a sunset

Great spot for sunset watching. Very famous spot. But too many people during summer. Try visiting this place early morning or sunrise

An interesting place. Not so exciting for young children. Good for photo talking in the early evening. Been there, taken the photo. :-)
