Beautiful white sand, clear water going on for 2 kms. Lined with restaurants and people selling boat trips. Hint: if the boat trip includes crystal cove don't go! Have to pay 200php extra to look at naff stone sculptures. Cannot even swim or snorkel there. White beach covered in people so don't try and find seclusion here!

I've always been conflicted over White Beach. I like it very much during sunrises and sunsets but the nightlife doesn't do it for me at all. It's more frenetic now and at the same time boring. Lots of dining places there that you can find in Manila. The bands this time of year are usually mediocre and the restaurants' sound... More

We probably visited White Beach at the wrong time of year as it was the rainy season. That said I would imagine it to be overcrowded and dirty most of the year. The photos on postcards bear no resemblance to what it is really like. The postcards we saw must have been made from photos taken years ago or at... More

Trust me, you will like the beachfront of White Beach. The water is amazingly clear and beautiful. you would love to see the sunset by sailing or hanging around the beach at 5.30pm. Love the beautiful beach!

Nice and clean, try finding a bar with deck chairs on the beach. Water is clear, warm and you can fall in love with this place, but watch out for the sun, it will burn you so use a loot of sun creme.

When we first saw the white beach, we were literally in awe and lost for words to say, it's just amazingly beautiful especially in the morning / noon time!

This is really nice beach, with clear water that you can see the fishes swim around your feet. The sun is hot with little to no breeze. I was cooked in minutes. Laying in the sand is free, true. But for the rest of us it's paying min 500 php for a little shade:) the worst part is the constant... More

There are three stations here. Station 1 and 2 are where most of the bars, clubs and dining places are. Station 3, my favourite, is less swarmed and more chill out. But whichever stretch of the 4km long White Beach you park yourself, the waters are equally clear, the sand powdery white and the views just gorgeous. Bulabog is where... More
