One of the best beaches, white sand, lots and lots of fishes you can see with a snorkeling set by the shore, perfect water with palm tree forest right on the beach. You can get here by a tuc-tuc available in the center of station 1 - it takes about half an hour to get there. The price is decent,... More

Love the solitude of the place. It's a great place to settle down for some swimming and tanning. Perfect place to beach bum.

I have been to Bora twice and it is a beautiful area and a fun place to visit! It is always busy, the scenery is great, food good and the night-life is interesting!

The perfect place to find oneself before totally losing a life from the city. The place to recover lost soul and reliving life we deserve.

We took a tricycle ride from station 2 and it took us about 15 minutes to get to this beach and it costs Php150-- very much worth it! It's on the north tip of Boracay island. I love it here, this beach reminded me of Malcapuya island in Coron! So peaceful and relaxing! There weren't too many people on the... More

You can reach this beach by foot, by tricycle or by boat. Don't forget to bring your picnic items, book or beer. Enjoy the sun!

This beach is amazing -- it takes a little while to get there (about 30 minutes on a trike from station 2 at a cost of 150 pesos) but it's well worth it. Almost totally undeveloped and untouched. A really cool different experience from the busy white beach areas.
