“Lovely beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

But we are spolit with the beaches in Perth so a little overrated. the restaurants on the beach are great. Loved being able to grab a drink and swim in the ocean.

“Algae in ocean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

When we went to White Beach we didnt actually swim in the ocean as there was thick green algae. When the tide went out it left some algae on the beach. If there was no algae it would have been a lot better. I was suprised with the temperature of the ocean. It was not as warm as Thailand or Malaysia

“Compare it to koh Samui beach,white beach dosent have a chance.!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Nice clean beach,water clear with some green moss,seaweed in it,they say the weed comes at this time of the year.Not wide enough compare to Samui beach in Thailand.Too busy for my liking as its not private enough but still pretty though.Had to come to borocay to visit,but not sure if I would come again,maybe go to Cebu and Palawan.Everything is sooo much more expense here than Thailand,food is too dear,massage,DVD,just about all things.
Ciao

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The most amazing beach, it was crystal clean and the waters were absolutely beautiful to swim in. Go for a stroll down towards station 1 just before the sun is setting.
