Worth a look

Well worth the walk up the beach to have a look, fairly nice scenery especially when the tide is out and you can access it a little easier

Beautiful spot to swim, we spent ages in the crystal clear water. We saw some fish, a good place to visit to learn to snorkel.

There is a statue of Maria, mother of Jesus on the top of this Rock. It is an icon on White Beach in Boracay. You have to see it. It has been improved on over the past 6 years. Now you can walk around the top of the entire rock with ease. If you go to Boracay you will want... More

We stayed in Nigi nigi too which was right in front of Willy's rock and this place is awesome as the beach is just divine. One of the best locations in Boracay for just swimming, or hanging around or taking selfies. This can be crowded as alot of tourists like to take pictures of this area but the beach is... More

Clear landmark on White Beach. White Beach is real attraction! Rock helps orient you when on the boat.

It's just a rocky outcrop in the sea at station 1..... it's not exciting or awe inspiring unless you are from a catholic background as it has a shrine to the Virgin Mary on it....

Never ever leave Boracay without stopping by here at Willy's Rock. A good spot to take snaps and videos. Also a great place to hangout during sunset.

You cannot miss this if you go walking along the beach. Its a Catholic shrine built on the rock you can climb up and have a look. Situated on the wonderful main beach at boat station one.

We walked past willys rock on our way to the spider bar. Very photogenic! Pretty much it's a rocky outcrop with a little religious statue on it. The water around it was pristine and a lot of people were snorkeling there.
