White Beach, Boracay

3.9
#1 of 2,579 in Things to do in Philippines
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.

    This might have beautiful white sugar sand but we found puma puka beach a much nicer place to be. White beach frontage is full of bars and restaurants and a lot of it is taken up by private sun beds. ...  more »

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.
