It’s a rock. That’s all. A Mother Mary statue placed at the top. I think the colonial Spanish destroyed all the Hindu or Budhist culture and just that tradition remained. You can see statues on all rocks and caves.

Much ado about nothing, you will walk past it and take a few photos and maybe if it's not packed walk onto the rock and see the religious statue but that's all.

Nothing spectacular about a rock and some trees. However there are two recommended activities which is jumping from the formed lava rock into the sea during high tide and taking sunset photos of surrounding wily's rock area

Willy’s Rock is the symbol of White Beach. Best place to take photos during sunset. It is nice to swim around this area as the sand is extremely fine and powdery. There are some mild waves here, which makes it fun to swim here. The...More

If you have kids this area will keep them busy for a while. You can walk out to the rock and the kids can jump off a little platform. There are also lots of shops and restaurants near by to eat. Many are highly rated...More
