The sand at this beach was so clean and soft. This is definitely a beach that you will want to go and should be on your bucket list if you have one. During the evening as the sun sets, you will be witness to a romantic and exotic sunset as well as nice entertainment and great food at the restaurants... More

I hope the government can do something to regulate the tourist pushers from ruining the beach experience. I could not walk peacefully down the stretch. It is so annoying! It really ruined the experience.

From the name you can tell that you're in a special place. And yes, it's one of the best beaches I've ever been to. White soft sands, coconut trees and clear water. There are a number of restaurants around button that good unfortunately. So you better only order grilled fish to be on the safe side. There are a number... More

My second trip to Boracay. I would not recommend going to Boracay between June and November as the wind blows straight onto white beach. My first trip was In the month of April beautiful beach and sunsets. This trip was August and it was windy the whole time and the sunsets where non existent.

This is one beach you must see, super beautiful and a lot more quiet then some of the other beaches, the only down side was that the sun beds where very expensive to rent and there wasn't anywhere els to sit in the shade but not a big problem! Cheers Ryan

Everything you can see in pictures is really what you get when you set your foot in Boracay. The water is clear, the waves is really great. Perfect for kite and surfboarding You can do a lot of activities around + in some areas, there are lifeguards so no need to worry.

Water is sooo great and its amazing to watch the sunset on this beach. If you are feeling up to it, hire a sailing boat to sail off into the sunset and watch it directly on the waters! Amazing view and peaceful. One of a kind experience! Plus, the beach is lined with bars and restaurants so you will never... More

White beach was best place i had ever been. White sand,clear water, nice resorts. The best place for relaxing, chilling and have some fun. But in the middle of the beach is main place tourism, so there are too much people, but you always find the place of peace.

From the title itself, it can already tell how our experience was on this beach. This is my second time here at Boracay. The White Beach a.k.a. "Front Beach" is good for the ones who loves to sunbathe, and or to take photos of. The activities here may vary from season to season. The front beach side is best during... More
