We will start first from the North: Puka Beach. Found on the northern part of the island. The color of the water is so blue and at lunchtime, it is busy since the boats from the island hop there for lunch.

It’s a beautiful and calm beach to spend the day. Most of the people go to Station 2 in White Island and Station 1 around Willy’s Rock.

There are only a couple of resorts, and just a few boats from the island hopping coming to Diniwid Beach.

White Beach is the popular beach in the area, and we loved staying here. We could say for us is the best beach in Boracay. Now, the beach can get crowded for sure, so you really have to pick your spot for relaxation. We enjoyed waiting for the sunset, watching the beautiful Paraw Sailing Boats. Our favorite hangout!

At the end of White Beach in Station 1, you will find this landmark. Steve was a foreigner who owned a hotel and his family buried him in the Hill top and you can see his grave cross from White Beach. Look at the colors of the water around this part of the beach. And how many people can you see around? We loved it here!
