“White Beach Heaven!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

White Beach is beautiful. Yes you get sunglasses vendors and touting for boat trips, but ignore them for long enough and you can see why this place is so popular. Soft white sand, crystal clear water and loads of room to spread yourself out under the sun with a cocktail :)

“It's difficult to name any beach at par with Boracay's white beach”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Boracay's finest and maybe one of the best in the world. It can get very crowded during peak season.

“very nice, but...”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The beach is nice and sand is great but you need to be in the right hotel to enjoy it. We stayed at Shangri La and it was great. Also Fridays and Discovery great. The further you go down to main boat stations the more crowded it becomes. Not ideal with young kids. Also water greenish w algae though I heard that this is seasonal.
The island itself is outstanding

“Paradise Found!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is like looking at a postcard. The sand is pure white and the water delicious shades of aqua and turquoise. We were at station 3 which has lovely palm trees for shade and less people, definitely my favourite place.

“Lovely beach!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The sand is so nice. Only get tired by all those vendors! It's nothing to do about it though, so just disregard them. The sand castles are lovely, and remember to give the builder an amount when taking photos of them!
