Willy’s Rock

A hundred metres off the shores of White Beach is an interesting volcanic rock formation that has become one of Boracay island’s most iconic tourist landmark.

Although some tourists consider Willy’s rock as a bit of an eyesore, it’s still one of the most commanding attractions in Boracay — this is evidenced by the number of tourists taking pictures of it and with it every day. Its jagged edges and rough volcanic material make Willy’s Rock look like a battleship. Thanks to its man-made stairs,  tourists can climb up on top of the Willy’s Rock to visit the altar of the Virgin Mary. It’s a fun sight to visit if you want to take a break from walking around the island.



Willy’s Rock is located in White Beach, Boracay, near Boat Station 1.
