A famous spot in Boracay
Jul 2021
You'll often see this small rock formation featured on most postcards of Boracay. It is very accessible during low tide, when you can climb it without needing to wade in the waters and have your photo taken with a small grotto with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary inside. Willy's Rock definitely offers a good background for photo shoots on the island's station 1.

Nice place

Located in station 1, this is a nice place for a morning walk or late afternoon, sunset walk. You can stroll right along the beach and have your photo near the grotto. Another instagammable area in Boracay

An amazing spot surrounded by sea
Jan 2021
It is a rock which has Virgin Mary on the top. Surrounded by an eye-catching view of the green waters, this place is an excellent photography spot.

Willy’s Rock is arguably Boracay’s most photograph landmark. It’s rocky outcrop that forms a tidal island with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top of the steps that are carved into the volcanic rock.

Better left virginal
Feb 2020
The rock outcropping lords the immaculately white beach and therefore attracts Insta denizens. Stairs lead to the grotto sheltering the Virgin Mary. People seem to like it, but I think it kinda gives a theme-park feel marring the virginal (pun unintended) land- and seascape. Boracay is better left in its natural state, like the Faraliogni in Capri and similar formations here at home off beaches in California. Heavenly presence, after all, is clearly viewed in the majesty of the entire scenario. Also, what was that smell around the rock?

Nice to take a look
Feb 2020 • Couples
Located at Station 1, Willy's Rock is somewhat of an iconic location (and the most photographed) on the island of Boracay. Best time to visit is during low tide, when you can wade over to it to visit the shrine, and at sunset so stay until sundown and watch the magnificent sun disappear behind the horizon.

Nice place to watch the sunset. Take a picture. Natural beauty shouldn’t be altered by man made structures
