This place is just spectacular, white-sand beach, and crystal-blue ocean! We had a splendid time...The restaurants and outdoor activities were wonderful. We went parasailing. Indeed, one of the highlights of our trip, as we sailed above the Pacific ocean. It was a remarkable experience, to say the least. I would highly recommend this beach to anyone! -Ana Tenorio of Raleigh,... More

Boracay never fails to impress - even when the beach at sunset is lined with the Chinese and Korean tourists displaying circus-like poses and Karaoke-like videos - which contributed to the array of beach entertainment. The sand is the finest and whitest and the water the clearest and amazing turquoise color. If your resort has a private beach - it... More

Honestly, this is the best beach ever seen in my life. The sand is so fine and the water looks inviting. If you take the boat out, say example 100M out, you could even see the sea bed! Just don't be deceived by the water as it is really deep.

i love the beach, water, and the bar. Water is really calm, the sand is almost pure as powder. a lot of great restaurant to dine in, Bar's and clubs are flooding. A lot of things to do, name all the water sports you can get. If you like to go on extreme go for cliff diving at Magic Island.

packed with tourists, bars, restaurants, people trying to sell sunglasses, boats etc. Good for going out but the beach itself is not that great. Sure it was some years ago before it was so overly crowded.

liked the sand, water in February had a lot of algae due to the warmer water. Lots of people trying to get you to buy tourist attractions etc. Lots of variety of food outlets at a very reasonable price.I'd recommend Jerry's Grill.

Beautiful white beach with amazing soft sand. Only downfall is that the food and merchandise are very pricey. For value for money, everything is cheaper when it's not on the white beach.

Without such a wonderful beach Boracay would probably not be the place it is, all the action centers around or happens on this wonderful beach.
