The perfect destination for those who want to see the legendary white sands of the Philippines but also do not want to miss out on entertainments and nightlife, Boracay is the trophy destination of the country, one that can be noisy and crowded - in the commercial centre - but also secluded, paradisiacal while still just at a stone's throw away from where everything is happening.
The island's long, white, sandy beaches rival the best beaches of more popular destinations such as the Caribbean, the South Pacific as well as neighbouring Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia; while facilities are available to suit just about every imaginable holiday-related activity.
White Beach is the centre of the island: this is where the action is, and where most part of the hotels, bars, restaurant and shops are gathered. Divided in 3 sections - Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3 - White Beach groups together a bit of everything: the upscale environment and fine, white sands of Station 1, where the widest and most tranquil beach front area is located; the crowds, shops and bars of Stations 2, where all the parties go on at night; and the tranquil and laid back environment of Station 3 where middle range accommodation and facilities can be found.
Other beaches scattered along the coast of the island are much quieter and very likely the image of what most people expect on a tropical island: white sand, azure water, and relatively empty. Try Bulabog Beach on the eastern coast for some windsurfing; escape to the long and quiet Puka Beach to the north; find Baling Hai Beach - a quiet little cove where you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling and dining in a relaxed, peaceful environment.
