Situated one hundred meters off shore, in the shallow waters of Station 1 on White Beach, is Willy’s Rock, a castle-like volcanic formation. Facing the beach are stairs leading to a chapel at the top, which contains a statue of the Virgin Mary. Willy’s Rock is the most photographed landmark on Boracay and offers a commanding view of the island. On the distant horizon, Naasog Point and Panay Island can be seen.
We took a slow walk to Willy’s Rock, and then snapped some pictures both in the water and on the top of the rock. Quite close to Willy’s Rock is Cocomanga’s Beach Bar. We ended up relaxing there for the rest of the afternoon. Jam Jar cocktails, a great view, and peace and quiet. What more could we ask for. At sunset we walked back to Station 2 to shower and get ready to go out. Oh island life!
