“Super White Sand, Super Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Pros
World's best sunsets (absolutely Awesome)
White sand, which is super fine
Awesome water
perfect air temperature
No coral,rocks, anemone ... so great for kids, and frolicking in the water

Cons
too many people
sometimes too many touts flogging their services
No coral, fish, to see

Great for your first visit to Boracay ...

Then, not so much. Go to Diniwid beach... same sunset options. No people

“Just an incredible view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

White Beach is incredible and the further north you walk, the better is gets as you literally walk on the beach to get to bars/restaurants/hotels. It is impeccably clean and doesn't suffer from pollution, broken bottles, stray dogs like many other impressionable places. I highly recommend it for these reasons even if it is a little touristy.

“White Beach - lots of food but too crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

At White Beach you can have your hair braided, eat international cuisines, savor the buffet and a whole lot more.

I am huge beach lover, but sadly white beach is too crowded to have a good fun in the water. Water looks a bit dirty compared to other parts of Boracay. Too many boats anchored near the shore destroys the horizon...

“Pretty nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

A nice beach indeed with scenic view and fairly clear water. 沙很細,但開始有過多的綠藻影響景觀。在島上買防曬油就可以了,價格合理而且行李托運有限制。喜歡逛街購物的童鞋們可能比較喜歡住Station2的酒店,會比較方便。
