“Beautiful Beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We thought it was paradise!
The whitest sand and aquamarine waters - what more could you hope for!
Wish we had been able to stay longer.

“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The Alona beach is a bit small. There are a lot of people on the beach, making it crowded. But according to those who went to Boracay, Alona is considered much less crowded. If you are adventurous enough, explore the island, there are some much less crowded beaches as they are less known. For food and boat packages, Alona beach is the place. The touts are ok, not tat aggressive and do respect people's privacy.
