Willy's Rock is a volcanic rock formation that is located along that shallow waters of Station 1 in Boracay. Along with its unique shape, it has also become a popular attraction due to the shrine dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary that sits on its surface. Man-made steps leading to the shrine have been constructed on the rock formation to help visitors.
Aside from the religious grotto, travelers also often step onto the rock formation to get a great view of the long shoreline of White Beach. Most locals also believe that the structure has been around for about a thousand years.
Tourists can simply walk onto the rock formation from Station 1 on White Beach. The rock is only a few minutes’ walk from the shore and is hard to miss due to its size.
Willy’s Rock is open to guests year-round. The best time to visit is from November to April when the weather is cooler and there are fewer chances of rain. It is also recommended to head to the rock formation when the tide is low because it is easier to walk to and climb the man-made stairs.
