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

Depend where in the white beach, but it go from average to disgusting due to the amount of algae (sea weed). There are better beaches around the island. Not worth if you come from Europe. There are better, cheaper and closer place to go than here. Since too many tourists, the ecosystem can't cope with it, so water has not... More

We loved it here! Most wonderful beach we've ever been to. Stayed at station 3, which initially made us think we would be far away from all the activities and the best part of the beach, however, I think st. 3 is THE best part of white beach. Close to everything, just calmer and less packed with people!

I don't know if some of the previous reviewers are vision impaired, or maybe they were there some time ago, but I was there just a few days ago and the shoreline and water to about 15 meters out is infested with green slime algae throughout the whole stretch of station 2. How can this place be in the list... More

The beach was infested with algae when we were there, which was normal according to the locals. However, it's still a lovely, lovely beach. The green stuff thins out as you tread the deeper (like chest to neck high) waters so no problemo. Haha! :D
