“This is Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Boracay White beach is one of the best beach in the world. It is close to paradise. The beach sand are sugar fine white, and even during high noon, you don't feel the hot sand. You also get the best sunset view. There is only summer and rainy season and no winter. Water is never too cold.
Along the beach, there are hotels,resorts mostly low rise and many local stores and restaurants. There are also many water sports attractions. Prices here are reasonable. When in the Philippine, this is a must see attraction. It's more fun in the Philippines. Boracay is just an hour flight by plane from Manila.

“Super!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Just make sure you come at the right season, otherwise you'll be swimming in green waters. The beaches are wonderful and lots of places to chill and eat. Don't mind the hasslers, they are just doing their job and are sometimes quite fun to talk to.

Fantastic beach! clear blue waters and white soft sand. Only issue was the seaweed but its practically non-existent on Station 1 which is about a 10-15 minute walk from station 3

“Madly overrated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Contrary to other reviewers, I hated it. the wind blew the sand so remorselessly, sitting on the beach was impossible; I found nowhere decent to eat, the hotel was indifferent, and everything was way above average prices.
