We only had a day to visit Boracay, and already I'm planning when I can go back! White beach was just so beautiful and for me, lived up to all that has been said about it. We sat on the beach for about an hour with no-one within 50 yards of us, so no noise, no hawkers, no loud music.... More

Yes there are palm tree's with coconuts on and the sand is white, but the sea was a horrible colour green because of the weed, when you got out a long way the sea was a lovely blue, but you had to get past the weed so i could not swim in the sea. It is also very busy with... More

We are 70 year old experienced world travellers. White Beach is up with the best beaches but the seaweed along the edge of the sand shocked us. We walked along the beach and in some parts could smell it. The bar at The Grotto (which is beautiful) was great for free wifi and 'happy hour' from 9am to 9pm. Beers... More

Reading all good reviews I was looking forward to visiting Boracay. What a dissapointment. White Beach doesn't have white sand anymore. It is overcrowded. People try to sell you something all the time.me and my bf spent only one day on White Beach and didn't want to go back again! There are so much nicer beach and places to visit... More

Hot sand in the day, cool sand at night. Area 1 is quieter, Area 2 is happening, Area 3 has lots of boats for island hopping. Really liked the sand there.

I loved the white, coraline sand, the beautiful turquoise waters, the calm sea, and the fantastic hot weather.

Having just come to Boracay from Palawan I was looking forward to seeing what White Beach had to offer and it's a shame to say I was disappointed. The water is lovely and clear (after all the seaweed!) it's shallow for so long that you do have to go really far out if you want to properly swim. Yes the... More

Soft cool sand. Wonderful sunsets. Many eating establishments. Fire dancers in the evenings. Live music at various restaurants on the beach . Massage on the beach. Good shopping. Very busy place, if you want a slower pace you won't find it here but great to people watch and grab a beer and make some new friends. Have not gone here... More

WHITE BEACH It was with much anticipation that my wife and I arrived in Boracay to see the famous White Beach in all it’s glory. We have visited many of the best beaches in the world and were excited with all the reviews we had read. Sadly for us, we arrived in the middle of what is apparently the only... More
