Willy’s Rock is arguably Boracay’s most photographed landmark. It’s a rocky outcrop that forms a tidal island with a statue of the Virgin Mary atop steps carved into the volcanic rock. Willy’s Rock gets its name from the nearby Willy’s Beach Club Hotel and is situated near Station 1 on Boracay’s 4 km stretch of white sandy beach.
It’s a very popular spot with local people, especially local Catholics, and as a result it can get a little crowded at times. The manmade staircase leading up to the statue is always wet and can get a little slippery at times, so take care, especially during high tide. Despite its status as a tidal island, Willy’s Rock is always easily accessible, though at high tide a wade through waist-high waters might well be required.
