    An amazing spot surrounded by sea

    It is a rock which has Virgin Mary on the top. Surrounded by an eye-catching view of the green waters, this place is an excellent photography spot.

    Most Photograph

    Willy’s Rock is arguably Boracay’s most photograph landmark. It’s rocky outcrop that forms a tidal island with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top of the steps that are carved into the volcanic rock.

Additional Information


Willy's Rock Formation, standing in the sea, is an iconic attraction on Boracay, where local residents enshrine a statue of the Madonna. At low tides, you can walk straight to the Willy's Rock Formation and clearly see the extending white sand beach and the crystal clear waters. At high tides, it is usually impossible to walk to the Rock, and it also feels very nice to enjoy the view on the beach.
