Ilig Iligan Beach

Ilig Iligan Beach is one of the secluded, less crowded beaches in Boracay.

At first glance, Ilig Iligan Beach can be considered a wild beauty – it’s free from any commercial centers, the waters are rougher compared to White Beach’s, and the quaintness of the area offers peace and refuge to those who are tired of partying and the large crowds. The smooth, white sand is perfect for walking barefoot as it remains cool even during high noon. Ilig Iligan Beach is a place that hides little surprises here and there: a vast variety of marine life in its waters, a jungle waiting to be explored, and secret coves and caves waiting to be discovered.



Ilig Iligan Beach is located at Batcave Beach Road, Aklan, a 20-minute walk away from White Beach de Boracay.
