Why Willy's Rock is special ?

Situated one hundred meters off shore, in the shallow water near Boat Station 1, Willy's Rock is a castle-like volcanic formation that dominates the seascape along White Beach. Facing the beach are stairs leading to a chapel at the top, which contains a statue of the Virgin Mary. Willy's Rock is the most photographed landmark on Boracay and offers a commanding view of the island. On the distant horizon, Naasog Point on Panay Island can be seen.

What to explore at Willy's Rock?

Willy's Rock has a Grotto with a statue of Our Lady in it and sits on the top of a rock outcrop. There are several other rocks surrounding the grotto with a palm tree on top and several other small trees on the top of each rock. It is accessible at low and high tide and there is a continuous stream of tourists who visit it from early morning to late night and have their photo taken beside the grotto. It is really worth visiting. A lot of wedding couples take advantage of the lovely attraction
