Alona Beach is not really a beach. It's not possible to go in the water because of the many many boats which are stranded on the shore or beacuse of the seagrass OR because of the trash that is EVERYWHERE...sad! I was in many places in south east asia but that place is ridiculous. People who say that this is a 'paradies' have no idea.. but maybe they haven't been somewhere else in the world. If you wanna have a nice holiday and a nice beach don't go there. There are definitely some other good places in the philippines.
