Wonderful white sand beach, with enough coconut trees to find a shade and relax.
Sun sets just in front of you with the sail boats on the landscape, just like the perfect postcard. Very safe, even with young children, day or night.
Low or high tide the water is always calm and you'll need to go far from shore to have the water level above your waist.
You won't find much on the beach besides the paddling boards for rent. All other busineses can only happen on the sidewalk, but it's just a few steps away. Massages, restaurants, bars, small shops, etc etc. There's almost everything available. DMall is the main restaurant and shopping area, were you can find plenty to choose from. Hotels, resorts, etc, as well
You can get there from caticlan airport in about 30 minutes. Less than 5 minutes trycicle to the pier, add about 15 on the boat trip and another 10 by trycicle from Boracay pier to the white beach.

This approximately four-kilometer stretch of white beach is definitely Boracay Island's main attraction. It's the main reason why people visit the island. It may not have the whitest and the finest white sand in the country, but it's got a really nice one and great lukewarm clear waters, too. There are times of the year when green moss cover many parts of it, so be sure to check out the best season of the year to avoid this. In summer, the white beach gets pretty crowded and the cost of accommodation at the beachfront resorts is more expensive than usual. There are also many agents who try to give you their offers as to the water activities one can do in Boracay. Be sure to canvass and compare the prices first before you decide. Some of them are simply overpriced.

Been to a hotel situated on this beach. It must be one of the nicest beaches in the world, by far the nicest we've seen so far. Sunsets are magical, enchanting. Make sure you have a drink in your hand and a good camera beween 5pm and 6pm and you will forget everything. Enjoy. We will be back here as soon as possible.

Clean soft sand and clear waters. This beach is stunning. Willys rock is a nice little visit and I recommend walking further up to quieter spots as there are a lot of toutes walking up and down selling jet ski, tours and a massages. However they are not allowed on the actually beach as well as no food or drink is to be consumed on the beach either.

Maybe Borocay was beautiful a few years ago, now is just packed with Turism... it’s impossible to move after the sun sets, the restaurants aim mostly for the Chinese tourists (there is a Mac, KFC and Starbucks at the beach?!)
Either you pay to stay at a private beach, or you must love to hang with 100 people around you. If neither of these options suit you, don’t come.

As if I had died and went to heaven, so goes the world's best compliment.
White Beach has the finest, whitest sands, a long shore and no rip tide to watch out for. No sharks either, just assertive locals exhibiting entrepreneurial spirit by offering boat rides.
Somehow the water was cool in February, when frequenters tend to expect warmth here in Southeast Asia. Blame the water temperature on the tragically melting glaciers, said my brother in law. But the water is so calm and soothing it's easy to forget the chill and luxuriate in its caress with the breeze in your face.

Crystal clear blue and green water, talcum powder white sand. Nature gave this beach everything and it is super clean since the closure. There isn't a lot of shade now so mornings and sunset are best. I was there during a very quiet time, which was heaven. I t can be hard to find a peaceful spot during peak times.

We had the best time in Henann Palm Beach Resort. Perfect location as it is close to good restaurants and D'Mall.
The rooms are spacious too!
We booked 2 types of rooms during our stay.
1st 9 days at grand sea view and it was spectacular! All good vibes when you wake up in the morning and see the ocean, plus it has a big balcony to lounge and eat with the whole family.
The sky pool is great to chill during sunset overlooking the beach!:)
Then we transferred to Premier rooms pool access, the kids love it too! They just can't get enough of it! Literally just outside your room!:)

The staff are super nice and accommodating, special mention to Aila😊 Always pleasant and helpful :)
2 thumbs up! And highly recommended for families👌🏼😍❤️

There are a ton of cool bars and restaurants located along this beach. I went here with some friends from work and we had a grand time . When you travel to boracay this is the best place to stay. The water is not too deep and progresses slowly with lots of Room to Wade. The waves aren't so bad either.It offers the best sunset views around with sailboats in the background.

I have lived all over the world and traveled to many of the beaches. Presently, I would rate White Beach one of the best. What makes the beach so special is that it is so big and you can walk or swim out and any where you touch bottom it is white powdery sand. If you like the beach scene and people watching, the middle of the beach is great. But if crowds make you nervous then at the ends there is plenty of empty beautiful sand. It makes me feel goo just to think about it.
