Boracay’s White Beach is almost as well known for its party image as it is for the sugar-white sand that gives it its name. The beachfront and area immediately inland is crowded with shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs – the place to party-on until the wee-hours.

Another popular beach is the Puka Beach, named so for the puka shells that are found along this area, and is used to fashion jewelry and other trinkets to sell to visitors. Puka beach is generally considered to be quieter than White Beach, with lesser people. Another beach is the Baling Hai Beach, which boasts of a restaurant atop a cliff that overlooks the whole area, and is perfect for romantic dinners and rendezvous.

Reveiw: If you stay here, your going to experience true Philippine hospitality. its also a minute walk from the beach- which is better than staying beach front because station one beach front is surrounded by loud clubs. Also, Hannahs streets sells fruit stands and desserts that is cheaper than the one in the beach. So before heading to the beach, grab your favorite refreshing drinks.

A try out on the Boracay authentic cuisine is also something that is advisable on a trip. Access wise, the island can be approached via sea or air. Flights from the capital city of Manila to the nearest Caticllan airport, even makes daily flights to Boracay. The less expensive alternative is to catch a boat that runs shuttle service between North harbor in Manila and Panay Island.
