Reviewed August 13, 2013

if we had stayed in station 1 we probably would have had the spectacle of the long white beach. but since we were in station 2 what we saw mostly were the tented places and stalls. in the morning there was the high tide so no white beach. in the afternoon, we were somewhere else.

“Too crowded, Too many vendors , Too many beggars”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

White Beach path has lost his magic! During the day too many vendors everywhere, Beggars , drunk locals under the palm trees , too many people trying to sell you crappy excursions and rent a bikes ! During night time you get harassed by lady boys, waiting under the palm trees to catch some drunks ! On 300 meters , you will have at least 15 Lady boys following you on your way home ! Thief's are waiting next to the small food corners to steal your bags , cameras and other assessors !

“Beautiful but too crowded”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Best to walk in the morning on Boracay's very famous white sand! best and super fine sand can be felt and seen in Station 1.
At night you can watch amazing fire dancers.

At the side, you can pass through a lot of restaurants, hotels, food stalls, souvenir shops, etc.

If you want to find cheaper souvenirs or "pasalubong", try Boracay's Traders. It's beside Victory Divers Bar and Restaurant. Things that you can buy here is much cheaper than those in D Mall. Or best to walk early in the morning, where some tindera's on the side walk who just opened their stall can give you discount because you're their "buena mano" :)

Boracay is so beautiful! but its too crowded with hotels and restaurants.

But overall, I ♥ Boracay! :)

“A beauty with flaws”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

You can't hate on the expanse of white sand beach with such great photo ops. But you can also tell you are at a place that is 10 years past its prime always feeling that you are too late to a cool party. You will have fun but also may feel some frustrations knowing the hip factor is no longer there.

“within reach from manila”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

spent three days at white beach in PG with friends.. beach was nice with some portions with fine off white sand and some portions with smooth pebbles.. i enjoyed the latter because im fond of taking microshots of pebbles... night crowd was great.. really enjoyed watching firedancers.. food- so many choices and reasonably priced... all of these just an hour drive and another hour boat ride south of manila!
