“Not better than some other beaches but more crowded”
Review of White Beach

White Beach
Reviewed April 22, 2012

This place looks like anywhere else in seaside beaches where you are offered jetski, parachute, banana, restaurants, etc ... Very cheap as always in Philippines but not local style at all. If you come on Monday and in the morning, you will feel like alone on the paradise but progressively getting closer to Saturday Afternoon, you will see the place transformed in a most unpersonal beach resort where the large boats coming from wherever are accoasting directly on the beach with flows of people, gazoline and noise. Just select your moment to get there ....

If you're looking for a cheap getaway to the beach then White Beach is perfect for you. There are tons of cheap accommodation here and same goes for foods and other things to buy. Just be ready to see a ton of people especially during the summer. One of the most annoying things in White Beach is the persistent vendors that will just keep bugging you, so forget all your relaxation at the beach

It was a very nice place and good for those people whose on their budget Puerto galera is best replacement to Boracay... the were well maintained compare to boracay beach it doesnt have some sea weeds or algae...aside from a dozens of bars and restaurant along the beach the place is not too crowded except to holy week were the place is all jam pack. The accommodations are just around the corner...the long stretch beach are full of resorts,lodge,hotels and guesthouse so finding a place to stay is not a problem here..their rate during the normal season will be around Php 500-800 but will double during the summer season. You can also do a lot of things like snorkeling,diving,island hopping,jet ski and banana boat riding for a negotiable cost.
