Best beach in Boracay if you like deserted and quiet beaches. During visit the beach was very quiet, there was altogether perhaps 10 people on the whole beach -> very nice private beach feeling! It is not very big beach and similarly windy as the close by Puka Shell beach. At both ends of the beach there are some rock... More

Its almost absurd how beautiful this beach is yet how empty it is. No one comes here because it is far from the main touristic area (150 pesos by tricycle) but the tiny limestone cliffes islands just off shore give it a unique type of beauty well worth the distance. Combine it with a visit to puka beach, about twenty... More

Ilig Iligan is best accessed by Parau from White Beach. That way you get to experience the tranquility of the Parau, the beauty of the coast line, and then the serenity of this as yet unspoilt gem. The beach is uncluttered with any kind of commerce, and allows you to just enjoy the beauty of the view, and reflect upon... More

This is Boracay's best kept secret... so far. If you're a beach lover and you don't need crowds or extreme sports to make your day, you should go here. Imagine a wide stripe of pale sand graced with coconut trees and dotted with fishing boats, plus two rocky islands just off shore. It's worthy of a postcard. Unfortunately there's not... More

Ilig-iligan is a 15mins ride from the white beach. It's quiet and private - literally not as crowded as the white beach. There are some locals living here but the view and the sand is incomparable. There is one restaurant here but not sure if it's still operating. It was closed when we got there.

There weren't a dozen people on the beach so there's some privacy. We saw a couple making out on the sand and the guy was obviously getting hot. Haha! It's got a better view than Puka beach. You'd have to rent a trike for at least three hours and have the driver wait for you as it's a looooooong walk... More

This beach is closest picture of Boracay in my mind, quiet beach only few tourists and locals, white sand, crystal water and sun... After couple of days hang around in Boracay, we really want to find more calm place than crowded White Beach. Look at the map there is Bulabog on the other side of the island and Ilig-iligan Beach...

We came to this beach to snorkel after reading about it in our lonely planet guide. The snorkelling is pretty good but the current was so strong we got sucked out to see very quickly and had to get rescued by the sea ranger. There are plenty of little cafés to eat at but is mainly used as a lunch... More

Waters are crystal clear and the beach is more secluded as you would need to charter a boat to bring you over there. Nice for a swim.
