We stayed in Station 2 for 4 nights and hanged out in Station 3 for the beach and sun! Pros: Crystal clear water and white sand! Beautiful weather Inexpensive food/drinks Friendly locals Cons: Green algae/ seaweed (?) lined the beach Vendors are constantly selling boat rides/ massages - even if you are sun bathing or enjoying a quiet breakfast.

This is our second visit to the Island and our vacation this time was full of fun! Helmet diving was our top favorite activity, second was para sailing, third was the fly fish and the fourth was the band wagon. Tons of activities to choose from! We will be back!

Not sure how this was voted one of the best beaches in the world. The whole beach is lined with green sea weed or algae whatever it is it's not pretty. Not sure if it's the time of the year but it certainly is not the best beach I have ever seen. Pity really because the water is crystal clear... More

I have enjoyed my time in boracay.we stayed for 6 nights and all the days were all very well spent. We enjoyed the water activities, pub crawl and the nightlife entertainment! Amazing! Not too expensive, I thought it will be expensive but not at all.

The water had green algae/seaweed. Lots of boats. You need to stay on the beach so you have a seat on the beach. You constantly get asked about trips, massages etc. Lots of restaurants although. The beach is overrated.

What was once a stunning beach experience is now a thing of the past. As you step on the beach particularly on station 2 to 1, all you see is a mass of dark green stuff coating the sand and extending about a meter from the shore. The guides stupidly justify it as seasonal winds but for repeat Boracay visitors... More

White beach it's just beautiful...the palms make this beach to be something hard to forget...the only little thing is that sometimes algae are present which is not very nice especially for women.

Liked the white sandy beach, especially at station one! Station 2 was a happening area, filled with pubs, clubs at night, shopping place for the day and night!!!!

Yes, Given, Boracay is Beautiful but it's better to spend no more than a day ion Boracay. Reasons why you should spend no more than a day in Boracay White Beach. 1. Unkept, Dirty and who knows what microbes are dwelling on those waters. - Tempting as it may to go during the summer months, Boracay white beach is "infested"... More
