Willy’s Rock is a small rock formation that has become the landmark of Boracay. It’s by the great white sand beach of Station 1.

People rave about this place but its really just average. Spend 10 minutes there and you are done. It is starting to get a little run down as well. Easy access so, why not go snap a few pictures and move on.

It still a fixture of White beach. But better take your pictures really early in the morning as it is one of the favorite spots for people to have their photo's taken. It used to look really good but not anymore...

It's a nice stroll along the beach towards station 1 to arrive at Wily's Rock, which makes a good background for souvenir photos.

Good job to the people who had thought of building the grotto in this rock. I wish it was bigger though and wider stairs to have space for 2 people going in opposite direction.

One of the attractions of Boracay that you need to complete with a photo taken at this Rock. Best visited at low tide for small kids to climb up without getting wet much. Anyone can walk up from the shoreline to this place for a great photo shoot.
