“its all worth it!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

What else can i say, everything here is great (except that it's pricey). Crystal clear blue waters surrounding you, white sand beach, romantic sunset. Aside from that, night life is great too, other than swimming activities there are also other things you can do in the island. I have been here 3 times already, and I always want to comeback.

“Gorgeous, but be on your toes”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

White Beach on Boracay Island is stunningly beautiful. The water is calm and spectacular. Lots of hotels a stone's throw from the beach. Lots of opportunities to hire a sail or motorboat to snorkel, dive and explore.

The constant barrage from vendors is obnoxious. So many selling the same thing. We were disappointed at getting ripped off by a guy who steered us to a 4 hour boat ride that lasted 2.5 hours and an hourlong sail that lasted 35 minutes. Advice: confirm absolutely everything with the guy and the boatman.

“Nice way to exercise and relax at the same time.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The path has to be at least 3 kms long, with traders, shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels and bars along its entire length. Great for morning and afternoon strolls. In November the number of tourists was acceptable which made the walking/browsing experience very pleasant, not sure about high season though.

“Perfect to Relax.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The sand is not as white as some but the quality of sand and lack of too many stones/coral/shells make it very pleasant to walk on. Coupled with almost wave-less sea makes it perfect to spend hours in the sea either swimming or relaxing.
