Volcanic formation

Lovely to see, apparently it's one of a few volcanic formations on the island. You can swim to it during high tide but take a stroll during low tide.

For me as a believer, Virgin Mary the scales are unique. You can go up the stairs and look closely and pray if you like - but surely it is not for all people as interesting spot, and whatever it is called is only rocks and Virgin Maria with name of restaurant !! However at the end of the beach... More

Willy's rock. You will see it when you stroll along the white beach area. Its between station 2 and 1. During the day you can wad your way through the sea. After sundown you can walk over the seabed (low tide). On the rock is a statue of the virgin mary which is lit up at night.

Some rocks with a statue along the beach. Honestly nothing worth checking out. If you are on the beach you will pass by and check it out.

Nothing special to see here, just a rock in the sea. Quite a lot of rubbish on top of the rock as the tide goes down, a few fish swim round the rock it's nice to sea as the tide goes out. But I wouldn't make a special trip to see unless you were staying at one of the stations... More

Rock like rock. If you are walking around you can have a look but nothing more. Ot doesn't make any sense to promote it.

This island is just off white beach near station 1 and has a little shrine on it too. Can easily walk out to it through the water.

It's cool I guess. IF you're Catholic it could be a spiritual Journey for you. Statue of Mother Marry to take photo with. Local told me that because a long time ago there were Filipinos that died because they fell asleep on the rock and drowned. Religious Idol was added to save lives. Pictures taken from restaurant patio of Watercolors... More

The scenary is very beautiful. Especially in sunset time. The sand is soft enough and the water is clean as a pool water. However, there are a lot of seaweeds washed ashore at this time so it would decrease the experience a little bit. But still highly recommended when you visit Boracay.
