I have been to Boracay for several times but it was my very first time to actually climb up and visit the Grotto. It was nice to pray and meditate as you hear the sea breeze. Jonah's fruitshake is just nearby for some refreshments.

Located at Station 1, you'll see it when you're there. Very popular spot to take photos. Just be careful though. The first step is very slippery.

Especially for Catholics, this place is a must-visit. A statue of Mother Mary is placed on the rock. One can offer a prayer or two. It can be overcrowded at times, but it is a perfect location during sunset.

If you visit Boracay, be sure to visit also this place. Offer a little thanksgiving prayer for giving you the opportunity to see the beauty of Boracay. Once you climb upstairs you will see a Mama Mary statue and above you will appreciate everything you...More
