Boracay's icon and must photo op with. You will not miss this if you walk up north along the White Beach. Nothing special, nothing fancy. If you're a devout Catholic, pass by and pray. Other wise just take a picture and post it online.

Cute chapel on the beach, nice to take pictures but please also pay respect. Amazing view during clear sunset.

This is an added attraction in Boracay and you won’t get a good picture because there are lots of people walking near it and taking photos. But honestly, it’s something you can take for granted because it’s only a rock formation.

I was staying in BBC so was able to use the beach chairs at Ariel House which in right on the beach-front. Willy's Rock can already be seen from Ariel House, it's about 2 minutes' walk away (slow walk). Purposely waited for the tide to be out before walking over so will be able to climb up the rock formation... More

Don't make a special trip to see this. Its a rock with a Virgin Mary, walking distance from the beach. There are always alot of tourists climbing on it so don't expect to get a good picture.

You cannot leave Boracay without a couple of photos of Willy's Rock. Be careful though when you walk to the rock as the tides can come in quickly and you could get very wet making your way back to the beach.

Honestly there's really nothing that great. What is interesting however is the difference between low and high tide. At low tide, you can walk the sands to the steps. At "half-tide", you can still thread the water and it'll come up to your tighs (I'm 1.57m thereabout). At high tide you can't even see the steps. Apart from this, there... More

Willy's Rock is a uniquely-shaped rock right in the center of White Beach, and as I was staying at Estacio Uno right opposite the rock, I had a view of the rock all the time. Took a walk up the rock (there are stairs to climb), but you would need to navigate the waves first.
