White Beach, Boracay

4.0
White Beach attracts crowds of tourists with its long stretch of fine white sand and crystal clear water in a tropical setting. The soft sparkling sand--made of seashells and coral finely ground by the powerful sea--never gets hot because its white surface reflects the sun's rays. Tall palm trees tilt their treetops in the direction of the sea, providing secluded spots of shade. Many come here for swimming and snorkeling. You'll find beachfront hotels and guesthouses for every budget; some offer scuba diving, parasailing, and jet skiing opportunities.

  • The sunsets at white beach are some of the most beautiful I've seen. It is a quite Beach by tourists so the prizes are higher than in other places in the Philippines but a point in its favor is that you have options for all tastes, activities, relaxation, massage, shopping and all types of restaurants, at night there are different options for a cocktail or beer and also for dancing.

Where to stay in Boracay

Boracay holds a daunting number of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, especially given its size. Just along the main central beach, choose between dozens of four- and five-star resorts, as well as mid-range hotels and guesthouses, all of which come at reasonable rates. For a romantic, tropical atmosphere, opt to stay in one of the wooden huts and bungalows that face the beach or circle grassy central compounds. The peak tourism season lasts from November to May, when prices rise and availability shrinks, so you'll want to book ahead of time.
