White Beach, Boracay Philippines

For a long time Boracay island with its long white beach has been one of Asias best-kept secrets. The mix of foreign culture and a close local community is quite unique. It’s already a fait accompli that large masses of land are soon going to be moved in the north of the island. There they intend to build resorts and housing for the better off; construction on the obligatory golf course is already well under way.

White Beach Boracay, one of the worlds Top 10 beaches

There are two climate patterns here locally known as the Habagat season, literally southwest wind, and the Amihan season, literally the cooler northeast wind season. Tourists usually come to Boracay during the Amihan season, which runs from September to June, when the climate is amiable for a nice tropical vacation. As a general rule of thumb, Boracay will be in the Amihan weather pattern from sometime in September or October to sometime in May or June and in the Habagat weather pattern for the remainder of the year. These dates can vary in individual years, though. In addition, resorts are starting to appear and the various types of water-sports (para-sailing, banana boats, jetskis, water-skiing, etc.) are using this area during the White Beach off-season (May-Oct, when the Habagat wind blows). Access to the D’Mall Shopping Center is only a 5 minute walk and a couple of minutes later you are on White Beach with all the crowds, restaurants, bars, discos, etc.

Pedicabs are also available for transport along the Beachfront Path. Other means of transportation include mountain bikes , quadbikes and motorbikes , all of which can be rented. Microtel is a new American style hotel with a beachfront resort feeling. The hotel has a swimming pool and restaurant on the beach, and a shuttle that runs to White Beach continuously. Red Coconut Beach Hotel stands as a distinguishing beachfront landmark in the Central Boracay area, known as an excellent venue for memorable vacation holidays. By its unique name, it offers comfortable and gracious hospitality to each and every guest.

White Beach at High Noon, Boracay Island, Philippines

That is because during the period, which comes amid the summer season in the region, local tourists flock the island to spend the long holiday weekend. Easter weekend is usually the most fun weekend not just in White Beach, but also in the entire Boracay. Understandably, this part of Boracay is the busiest, nosiest and most crowded during the high season. Running parallel to White Beach is the Beach Path which separates the beach from the commercial and resort areas. We really enjoyed our stay in Two Seasons and brought home a couple of brochures that I will distribute and recommend to my friends and relatives. Sayang lang we have to check out early because of the re-scheduled flight with Cebu Pacific.

    White Beach was beautiful. When I returned home, everyone said my pictures looked like something you’d see on a postcard. It was however, a little too crowded for a person who values privacy. My favorite beach on Boracay was Puca Beach. The water is a little rough for swimming on that side of the island, but the view is amazing.

    Boracay is one of Asia’s best kept secrets. But now, it’s a world class tourist destination. Visit the place during the summer season where the weather is great for swimming and surfing.-Engr Jayl Boraweather

    Wonderful Island. White Beach is beautiful, lots of action. If you want less crowds, go to the other side of the island. Affordable rooms by the beach, or if you want more privacy, get one up in the hills. Plenty of places to shop and eat. Lots to do. Loved going parasailing and going on the jetskis. Good nightlife, but it’s also a family-oriented place to visit. Enjoy the Philippines!
