it's a famous landmark in Boracay, that is why if you want to take really good pictures, better be in this area early in the morning. There are not much tourists hovering and taking pictures as well. Just be ready to wade in knee deep waters. :)

As the Title Goes! The Rock is partly submerged in water on High Tide . On Low Tide , you can climb it. It's quite interesting watching the view with the tricks of nature. It's right in front of Willy's and Nigi Nigi Too.

So we had to walk a long way from station 2 just to get to this rock. The stairs leading up the Mary statue is broken so be careful. Best if you stop along the way and take pictures of the lined up small boats for paraw.

The view is quite captivating if you take a picture of Willy's rock when the sun is rising or setting and when the tide is high. There is a statue of Mother Mary up on the rock which is quite special about it. Most tourists que to climb up while others settle to pose on the bottom. I enjoyed seeing... More

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.

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
