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.

  • It’s an icon but there’s nothing much to do other than to take photos and look at the fishes that swim around the rock. Go before lunch to get the best lighting  more »
  • Directly in water, built a small installation. It turned out Delish. The stone is carved staircase and a small statue of the Virgin Mary. When ebb-fashionable pass on the sand. When the tide is knee-deep in the water go all the same. excellent place for a photo for memory.

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.
