All photos you take at Boracay should be photobombed with this feature The excellent white sand of Boracay is never completely experienced without viewing this unique feature while walking barefoot. Just so that folks in the Philippines know that you visited Boracay, it is a must to have a selfie or groupfie with willy's rock

This was the 1st hotel that responded to me right away. I'll be travelling with my family, which is why I have several requests, and they were able to accommodate all. I have to commend the staff for being courteous. We booked a Super Deluxe room at the ground floor (beach front). Room is spacious enough for 4 people, and... More

The resort has a good beachfront restaurant and most of the rooms are facing the ocean. The big rock by the beach is beautiful, but it saddened me that they have to put a statue of a religious figure on it, as if Virgin Mary is part of the tourist attraction that some are having their photos taken beside her...

I frequently take a photo on this very spot either it be "selfie" or simply admiring how the SUNRISE and SUNSET of Boracay Island captivates everyone who sees it! Does Willy, ROCKS!

This place is right on the beach. It is fairly quiet at that end of White Beach. We ate there twice as it was right next to our hotel. Talked to fellow diners who were staying there and they raved about the hotel. Food was OK, I don't recommend the Korean selections. Waiter seemed confused with any question and disappeared,...

Willy's rock lack maintenance but it is a good place for taking selfie. In order to reach the rock,one has to walk few meters in shallow water which hardly reaches waist.

While Taking a nice long walk on the beach in the morning, my girlfriend and I came across this beautiful attraction. There were several tourists already around it taking pictures to we decided to relax and take a nice refreshing swim all around the rock until the crowd thinned out. Very nice attraction and makes for some beautiful pictures.

U could actually walk far from shore and swimming there. No boat will get close to that point as is very shallow beach so we are safe to swim there. Is also a good spot for non swimmer just hanging with friends taking pictures, or family with young kids without worry. You could probably fall as sleep if lay down... More
