visit to the beach is not complete if you miss seeing the Blessed Virgin Mary's grotto and take a picture of the beautiful image on top of the Boracay Rock in Station 1.

In 2010, the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary was removed.  It has been said that the Willy's Resort owner ordered to abolish the grotto after converting to a new religion. Since the grotto in Boracay is very well-known, the incident about the missing image made a big noise and created a lot of issues, especially to the local people and visitors.

Boracay is a small island in the central Philippines. It's known for its resorts and beaches. Along the west coast, White Beach is backed by palm trees, bars and restaurants. On the east coast, strong winds make Bulabog Beach a hub for water sports. Nearby, the observation deck on Mount Luho offers panoramic views over the island. Offshore, coral reefs and shipwrecks are home to diverse marine life.
