where to go??

We are only in Manila for 10 days, We have 3 free days to travel away to a beach. I want a white beach, non touristy, a Nipa hut on the beach would be great, no need for lots of things to do, just want to enjoy a few days relaxing on the white sands with no big resorts around?

I guess your in the right forum.

Guimaras Island would be your perfect destination. It is just a 10-minute boat ride from Ortiz pier in Iloilo City. You may check my favorite resort in Guimaras which is Costa Aguada --> http://www.costaaguadaislandresort.com/

There are also some island resorts in Guimaras which you can have all to yourself. As Guimaras receives less tourists than other white beach destinations you will not have any problem with resorts being fullybooked. There is a Dept. of Tourism office at the port in Guimaras who have staff more than willing to help you with your vacation in that island.

Many flights between Manila and Iloilo City. That would be your only option if you have just 3 days.

Check these Guimaras articles and pictures if they fit your description of non-touristy white sand beach with no big resorts around:
