It’s one of the top 5 in the world! A lot of great things about this beach, Sandy bottom were you swim with no rocks, so no need for surf shoes. White beach is not just a casual name, the sand is really WHITE!! The white sand is the end result of millions of years of coral erosion and don't... More

Although there are more and perhaps even more spectacular beaches in the world Boracay White beach for me is the best. The reason is that you have a possibility to choose cuisines from all over the world there and/or according to your budget. Also the accomodation options are wide and for all budgets. It is not boring to walk every... More

I read how beautiful Boracay's White beach is but it has been disappointment; green seaweed everywhere and it's not nice to swim in it. I have also heard that corals are dying very fast. Must be some pollution problem. And the water is cold in the sea. I came from Thailand where water was so warm. I take the first... More

The beach is about 2 km long located all the way from Station 1 to Station 3. As we are staying at Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel at Station 2, the hotel provided private sun lounges along the hotel beach front for their guest. The beach is clean & no smoking & no littering rules is strictly enforced. While were there,... More

A fine example of how poorly managed tourism can ruin a destination. Crowded with trashy souvenir shops, food outlets and people selling all kinds of nonsense, the smelly green algae in the water is the final touch to what surely used to be "the best beach in the world". There are hundreds of better beaches, but better to keep them... More

My wife and I love beaches and we've been to many around the world. Boracay's white beach is the best for 2 simple reasons: pure white sand and clear water. The sand is very soft to your feet in the water as you walk out into the ocean. The water is very clear and it is unique because when you... More

Maybe it used to be a white beach, now it's just a beach with lots of seaweed and boats. There are much nicer beaches all over the Philippines.

Walked end to end of the white beach, very calming even with so many people. The sans are so fine and it's not hot at all. The water is not deep so swimming is very friendly for younger ones, waves are not strong also.

The beach was awesome except it was the season for Algae, so the sand was all covered in algae, we needed to swim at the deeper end where the water was cleaner.
