πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ White beach, Boracay, Philippines has become the best white sand beaches in the world !

As far as I am concerned it was always the best beach. I first went there in the 90s. It was ruined by the influx of Chinese tourists years back but after it was closed for a while for a good cleanup, it is again a beautiful beach.

I used to like the fact they had a few restaurants on the beach and you could sit and watch the sun go down but that has changed; there are more restrictions now and the influx of top quality hotels has not added to its beauty. It is still a lovely island but I prefer it the way it was back in 90s before mass tourism arrived.

Boracay tourism isn't what it used to be. Numbers are way down. I'm hearing that foreigners are being lured to other domestic or international destinations due to social media exposure. With 3 Boracay trips in the near future, this is good news for me....

I have been to Boracay twice, but 20 years ago. At that time it was becoming overdeveloped. I have read that they have turned that around. I enjoyed the first trip. The second at a lesser hotel during Golden Week not so much.

It was great, stayed at Nigi Nigi Nu Noos twice near station 2.

I also stayed at another great nipa style place, forgot the name, but it burned to the ground years back.

I'm going to Boracay this week. My hotel's door is in the sand on the beautiful White sand beach. I chose this hotel, in part, because they provide beach chairs for their guests on their own property. Unlike Pattaya, beach chairs (even your own) are forbidden.Β

Are they allowing umbrellas, I believe a while ago they were not allowing customers to put up umbrellas. Defeats the object for me as I have to have an umbrella while on the beach as I have vitiligo. I used to stay by the hotel to ensure adequate cover.

Watch this space for trip report although there's several FB groups with breathtaking daily photos. This will be my 4th visit and it never disappoints. After a few days, I am thrilled to get back to Manila.Β

I've just edited my original post lol. Having been a regular scuba diver to many Maldivian islands i think i know where they are lol

Until I saw the πŸ˜„Β guy in the comments, I thought maybe the Isaan fever had clouded your geographic memory. 🧐

My  Geography degree makes it hard for me to pass up a "where is it" question if I can look at a map. Started when I was a young kid reading National Geographic magazine. Like the native gals too...  😁

I got certified in the Cook Islands back in 1990. One of the best things I ever did. Enjoyed many dives in amazing places.Β
