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.

Like the way beaches should be. No fancy, no man made attractions. People come and do picnic. I will recommend this beach to those people who wants to get away from the buzz and creeps of the White Beach and the Bulabog Beach! Same powdery white beach sand and crystal clear waters.

We went there as part of our island hopping itinerary. I understand it is accessible by the road. When we reached, there were already many other boats anchored along the beach so there was not much space left along the shoreline to play. It was small and dirty. There is a restaurant there and and a guy came up to... More

Not quite as beautiful as White Beach, few are, but far more secluded and peaceful. You can travel far and wide in the Philippines to find beautiful secluded beaches, but sometimes all you need to do is get a 200php trike from Boracay main.

This is definitely the best beach we visited so far by now in boracay (we visited white beach from station 1 to 3, puka beach). This beach is very very quite, almost like your private beach! (In this period now, april, there are a lot of seagrass along the white beach and smells...) Ilig Iligan is like a hidden gem,... More

Another hidden gem in Boracay. Its abit far from the main road but once you reach it, you'll notice how beautiful it is. Rent a bike and explore all of the island beaches. You'll be amaze.

It is the most beautiful beach ever! A little bit far form the main road, also far from Station 1, 2 or 3. When I went there, there was nobody but us. Looked like a private beach. For sure the most beautiful beach.

I found the best way to enjoy Boracay was to explore each and every beach! Don't limit your time to White Sands when each beach has a different personality, type of sand, landscape and vibe. Getting there can be half the adventure! Getting to Ilig-Iligan requires you to take a boat in or a tricky tuk-tuk ride. I'd suggest boat,... More
