White Beach, the famous tourist spot in the island of Boracay, is a perfect stop for everyone who wants to experience both nature and leisure.
The panoramic beauty of White Beach de Boracay, particularly its long stretch of fine white sand and deep blue sea, are not the only things that set the place apart from other beaches. White Beach is also where you can find the biggest commercial strip on the island. At the same time, the gentle waters of White Beach make swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving so hard to resist. Daytimes usually start peaceful and quiet, but the fun starts to kick in from the late afternoon onwards – you can mingle with locals and foreign folks during leisurely walks on the beach or you can cap off your Boracay adventure with trendy night parties happening all over White Beach.
White Beach is located at Balabag, Malay, Aklan Province.
