Aklan: Willy's Rock

Image
Found in Station 1 of the four-kilometer long white sand beach of Boracay Island in the province of Aklan, Willy's Rock is considered as the most recognizable landmark in Boracay. To oddly shaped rock formation got its name from the nearby Willy's Beach Club Hotel. Locals erected a shrine for the Blessed Virgin Mary atop one of the huge rocks. They also built a staircase to protect the "adventurous" tourists from the jagged edges of the formation.

Aklan Adventure: Boracay Island

Image
Our adventure today takes us about 315 km southeast of kilometer 0 in Manila. Boracay Island is one of the major attractions of the province of Aklan. It is famous for its palm-fringed white sand beach that stretches for more than 3 km. It was recently named Best Island in the World by Travel + Leisure , an international magazine. There are only two things that you should know about Boracay Island. First, it's better to visit during the off-season months which is July until November because that is the time when airfare and lodging are cheapest. Second, Boracay Island's famous white sand beach is divided into three stations. Take note that Station 1 has the most expensive but beautiful resorts, Station 2 is nearest to all the restaurants, and Station 3 has less expensive hotels and lodging.  Be on the lookout for promos for cheaper fares! During our stay there, we preferred to rent a place in Station 2, in that way we are near both Station 1 and 3.
