Vodoley Rock is the rock extending 220 m in northwest-southeast direction and 110 m wide in Barclay Bay on the west side of Ioannes Paulus II Peninsula on Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The area was visited by early 19th century sealers operating on nearby Byers Peninsula and Cape Shirreff.

The feature is named after the settlement of Vodoley in northern Bulgaria.
