Boracay「ボラカイ」: White Beach

White beach, Boracay

Ranked among the "Most Beautiful Beaches in the Philippines", awarded "2nd Best Beach in the World2011" and "Best Beach in Asia 2014" by TripAdvisor, named best island in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine in 2012, there's no question about the main reason why tourists book a trip to Boracay. White Beach is Boracay's most pristine stretch of white sand and turquoise water is a bit of the Benidorm in the Philippines. Lovely, but somewhat damaged by too many groups of Asian tourists, Chinese and Korean couples taking pre-wedding pictures, people try to sell you anything from a dive to a sunset parasailing gride plus hotels, restaurants and malls lining along the coast line.

Since a majority of the people who come to Boracay never make it out of this beach, it deserves a post of its own. We didn't come for this of course -"but that's another story, I'm not storyteller". Still it is a beautiful beach to take a dip, a walk, watch the sunset or share dinner with a special person.

The northern side of the beach has some cute path to explore a rocky area that marks the end of the beach.

We ditched too many pictures and opted for some sunset drinks instead.

Lovely calm views

White Beach as you can see in the map has 3 stations (where boats, paraws and diving tours can drop you) - the mall is around station 2, but the nicest places are beyond station 1, towards the north.
