My favorite beach in the Philippines! Important advise: If you want peace and quiet, stay in Station 1. If you want to party, stay in Station 2. If you want to kite surf/wind surf, stay at the other (back) side of the island. Remember to RESEARCH before going to the island as there's different parts of it. Some parts are... More

turquise shallo water, powder white beach, restaurants under palm trees..a busy area with international flair. I stood outside of this huzzle and buzzle area in Alargo-Villa at yapak where you have a quiet relaxing villa with 2 apartments and a magnificant view to the see and can enjoy the sunset from your terrace or lay in your jacuzzi with a...

Very fine and sandy beach. Lots of activities going on. Sometimes there are lots of algae which spoils the overall attractiveness of the place

The beach was amazingly clean for such a populated area. Recommended to go for island hopping for snorkeling. Food variety / quality along the white beach is so so, nothing to shout about, but passable. From observation, more locals come here compared to a beach resort like bali. My hotel was along the beach and they gave me a lower... More

You can find many activities like water sports but the price not that cheap. There also have many different type of restaurant among the long White Beach. When peak season, there was crowded. It used to be a very nice beach, but it was seen polluted and commercialised.

Very nice and clean beach, good for relaxation! A lot of local guide selling their sea activities package, be sure to haggle for a better price!

I don't have to move to far at the white beach because there is everything near white beach. Beach is so nice to swim. I can eat delicous food at the restaurents.

Travelers should try snorkeling from the beach down at Station 3. Some good coral and great fish including Nemos, puffer, angel and parrot fish. Ask for Stephen at Tree House, he does a 1 hour tour for only 150 peso including snorkel equipment. Really beautiful and he is a wealth of knowledge about the coral and the fish.
