Nice quiet beach

Get away from the heavily touristed White Beach and you find a pristine quiet beach at Ilig Iligan. Good for snorkelling too.

There are no commercial establishments in this part of Boracay. And according to the locals, this is how the white beach looks like before it was developed. This place is perfect for picnic by the beach and also for picture taking.

Ilig Iligan is a beatiful less crowded beach in Boracay. We spent an afternoon lazing on the beach with hardly anyone around us. The water is a beautiful blue but be wary as the currents are strong. If you're a strong swimmer it's okay but stick to paddling about if you don't swim. I'd come back to Boracay again just... More

Like Puka Beach, it also isolate and less crowded. Very few people visit this beach but the ambiance and scenic beauty of this beach is very charming and romantic, may be very good for couples.

This is a simple beach that some of the Banka operators may take you to. Bathroom is available in some of the areas. Be prepared to pay a premium for drinks here. We ordered Coconuts at one of the restaurants so that we can use their bathroom and we were charged 150 pesos each for "old" coconuts which meant you... More

Nice little beach with few people. There were several boats docked there, so swimming is difficult, but floating is easily accomplished. Good place to read and tan. Bring a drink and prepare yourself to ride on the back of a motorcycle for the ride back as there are no trikes unless you prearrange a pick-up.

The Ilig Iligan beach was roughly a 5 minute walk away from our hotel so we decided to go snorkelling. Beautiful underwater life but very strong current! We were lucky enough to have one of the locals pick us up to bring us back to shore....or else we would have drifted out into the sea!

Went there for lunch with private boat tour because our boat captain suggested this spot. Much nearer to go than Puka Beach. And it was beautiful. The beach is very secluded and quiet, it is literally your private paradise away from the crowd. The fine sand is just like the one in White Beach with some small rocky islands in... More

This beach is not visited by many people, you will have a quiet time here, except for the sea itself. The waves are strong and therefore fun for adults, but not recommended for children. Getting back to the white beach by tricycle might be tough, but there are some motorbikes available (with drivers) for transport away from this beach. There... More
