Owner description: Boracay’s most popular beach is famous for its amazing sunsets and its white sand that stays cool in hot weather.

Maybe it's because I've heard too much about it or I visited better beaches such as Phuket, but White Beach is far from what I imagined or saw on the pictures. During the rainy season, it's windy and rainy and dreary... The beach is actually pretty dirty. You'll probably have a much better experience going their during the dry season. And of course, you'll enjoy it no matter when if you're the party type looking for fun...

As titled.

White Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited.

Variety of lodging options available for travelers of all types.

If your budget allows, I strongly recommend Shangri-la Boracay.

If you are a sea food lover, u MUST go to D'Talipapa for sea food. You pick the sea food you want. Pay the vendor (you can bargain a little here). Then take your newly purchased item(s) to the adjacent restaurant for them to cook. These restaurants have set menu and prices for their service based on the type of sea food you purchase. Shop around as some restaurants are more expensive than the other. The difference is small among restaurants (10-40 PHP). Delicious fresh sea food. You can't go wrong with this option.

Amazing soft white sand.

Very little rocks.

Very comfortable to walk on bare foot.

Lots of tourists!!

Lots of establishments along the beach (bars, restaurants, hotels, etc).

Lots of water activity options.

It is the type of beach you come to do things besides lying on the beach to relax and get a tan.

My then bf and I visited the island back in october 2009, low season, very little crowd. Very awesome beach, saddened I wasn't able to explore it much. Only saw station 2, wish saw more. The hawkers can be very annoying, dampening your mood when you just wanna swim or laze around.

We walked this path at least 4 times while in Boroacy. But bring a flashlight at night if going as far as Diniwid beach.
