Good for going there during a walk on the beach, nothing too special though. Famous for taking pictures with the Maria. Don't climb the rocks, they are hard and sharp as commonly found here. Yet, you can go for a dip and search for crabs at the rocks bottoms.

Nice focal point to walk to along the beach and swim around as well as climb up to the little shrine. Great bars to stop off at on the way there or back.

Location at Station 1 area - took a tricycle from Station 3 and stopped at True Home. Walk towards the beach through "Jonah's" (grab a fruit shake there!) and you'll see Willy's Rock right infront.

located right on the beach, Willy's Rock serves some of the best food in Boracay. Try the fish burger and the paella!

You have not been to Boracay if you had not taken your photo with the rock and the image of the Virgin Mary as your background. The sand around the rock are sugar-fine (of course, it's in Boracay). The water is so clear that you can readily spot the fishes swimming around. I should have brought bread crumbs with me.... More

I highly recommend you take the walk from White Beach to Diniwid. If you do this you will pass Willy's Rock, but so many others too. All of the views in Boracay are unbelievable and amazing. Willy's Rock is surrounded by people trying to sell you things and is crowded, the same views are available between the two beaches with... More

Willy's Rock is an icon of Boracay, it's in almost all of the popular photos of the Boracay Sunset which can clearly identify that the photo was shot in Boracay itself. The waters are very clear and clean near the rock and there are fishes that swim below the rock. There is a Blessed Virgin Mary statue that sits atop... More
