“lots to do but too noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

this is the main drag in boracay, but its honestly littered with guys trying to sell you things constantly, like souvenirs and atrractions, it gets annoying after awhile, just dont entertain them , walk by and say no thanks, you will be saying that alot...that being said its kind of unavoidable as all the good eateries and shops are along white beach...with the bad comes the good...awesome shake stop is at charlehs bar. Yellow cab is good quick chow pizza...try the anchovies lovers.. true food had awesome indian, bit pricey but great view..bom bom bar had a awesome vibe...red coconut for crazy strong drinks...nigi nigi noos noos for huge punch bowl style drinks and the booze buffet...sandbar for fire spinning and beach couch lounging...the recency for the most delicious mojitos...red pirates bar for a special true boracay feel....cocomangas for party central...as you can see lots to do :)

“Nice Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

One of the best beaches in the world. You can spend all day at that beach! Water is crytal clear. There are many nice restaurants and bars to chill out. They have live music at bars too. At night there are plenty of fire dancers and singers gather partying. It was so much fun. I enjoyed time here so much and would definitely recommend to anyone.

“Unexpected high tides”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Unfortunately, we can only looked at the rough but turquoise water at the White beach due to the high tides. No activity can be done because the water was too rough, sometimes red flag was up (meaning no swimming) Tides were so high that it washed right up to some hotel front at station 2! Beware booking those "beachfront" hotels during this season. You may not enjoy at all. There were wind-breaker (tall bamboo structure) erected to keep out strong wind & sands & splashing sea water that will spoil your "beachfront" holiday image

“Beautiful and breathtaking! A must go to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The sand is so clean and fine. Beautiful blue waters. There was also a great sand artist who created, "I love Boracay" in the sand. Great attraction and great for photo remeberances. We loved it!

“perfect walk for a sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

high tide will prevent you from going too far, but, the evenings were great as you could walk across the whole beach
