Fodor's Review

Put simply, this is the reason you came to Boracay in the first place. One look at this 5-km (3-mile) unbroken stretch of beautiful fine white sand, gently lapped by tropical seas and fringed by coconut palms, and you quickly understand why it appears on so many "World's Best Beaches" lists. This is what most folk think of when they conjure up an image of paradise. Such beauty hasn't been a secret for years, and the strip of bars, restaurants, hotels, and souvenir shops

just behind the palm trees that caters to the millions of tourists does shatter the illusion somewhat. But while planning laws (just about) keep paradise and purgatory apart from one another, you can still live the fantasy—in the daytime, before the discos start up, at any rate. The beach is divided into three sections from north to south: stations 1, 2 and 3. Station 1 has the widest stretch of sand and the priciest hotels, while Station 2 is where most of the shopping and eating takes place. Station 3 is the place to go if you are looking for quiet.
