Almost every single time you think of going on a vacation, one thing comes to mind – A serene beach with soft white sand and dancing palm trees. This is precisely what the Boracay Beaches are known for its tranquility and nightlife.

What is Boracay’s White Beach like?

Boracay Island is mostly famous because of its beaches with powdery white sand, vibrant community, and stunning sunsets. The entire stretch of the White Beach consists of three stations. Station 1 is where you find luxurious hotels and extensive sports activities. Station 2 is the epicenter of the region- with the D’Mall, stalls, and lots of crowd. Station 3 is apt for loners and people who want silence and peace. Here the water is quite more in-depth than other stations.
