Station 1 is the home of a lot of luxurious beach resorts. It’s also the home of Willy’s Rock, one of Boracay’s famous visual landmarks.
Station 2 is the center of Boracay and the home of a lot of mid-range resorts. The water is still shallow, only a bit less then in Station 1.
Station 3 is the home of a lot of budget and backpacker hotels. The beach drops off a lot steeper into the water here, so it becomes deep pretty fast.
