Willy's Rock, Boracay

3.2
A strangely shaped volcanic rock resembling a battleship stranded during low tide, Willy's Rock becomes an islet during high tide. When the tide is out, climb some dozen steps to reach a small shrine featuring a 1.2 m (3.9 ft) tall statue of the Virgin Mary. The three large rocks on the top of the formation, fringed with a palm tree and some shrubs, make a particularly good photo opportunity. Expect crowds; a bar nearby sells drinks and refreshments. A visit to Willy's Rock represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Boracay trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • A great spot to take some photos of the white beach. Try and visit at low tide otherwise you will be fully wet. It gets busy as well.  more »
  • I wouldn't especially go out of your way to visit this rock but there was many taking photos of it and waiting for their photos.  more »
  • The man-made island of stones. The tide went at it on foot. One picture taken is problematic, a bunch of people in the shot))). The place is popular and is one of the symbol of Boracay.

Where to stay in Boracay

Boracay holds a daunting number of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, especially given its size. Just along the main central beach, choose between dozens of four- and five-star resorts, as well as mid-range hotels and guesthouses, all of which come at reasonable rates. For a romantic, tropical atmosphere, opt to stay in one of the wooden huts and bungalows that face the beach or circle grassy central compounds. The peak tourism season lasts from November to May, when prices rise and availability shrinks, so you'll want to book ahead of time.
