The best beaches of Boracay are the main reasons why this tiny island in the Philippines’ western Visayas region has become one of the major holiday destinations in this huge country-archipelago. Get ready for the postcard clichés when you’ll arrive in Boracay, with soft white sand lapped by turquoise waters and fringed by coconut trees. Boracay beaches have retained their quaintness, despite the anarchic development of the island.
Even though it is quite a small place, Boracay hosts a total of 17 beaches. The most popular of them could not be more different from each other: some are busy, some are peaceful, some are small, while other are over a kilometre in length. Most are easily accessible but, before to get there, you can check out the five best beaches we’ve listed for you. They are certainly the most popular beaches in Boracay.
