Differences between seasons,,es,If you are looking for something more "authentic" and really cheap, you can always stay in,,es 1, 2 and 3
White Beach stands out for its more than 7 kilometers of white sand and crystal clear water. The large number of both domestic and foreign tourists have turned it into a site with a wide range of restaurants, leisure centers, nightlife, activities and resorts. It is divided in 3 stations that we describe below:
Station 1: Luxury resorts and stunning beach.
Here you will find the beach that gives fame to Boracay, you can see the beatiful sunset while swimming in this turquoise sea. Staying at the station 1 is for the pockets with greater budget because in this area are the most expensive resorts. There are good restaurants along the beach where to enjoy a sunset dinner for affordable prices. If you want to pamper yourself and sleep facing one of the best beaches in the world we recommend Sea Wind Resort or Estacio Uno.
Station 2: For shopping and partying.
It is the epicenter of White Beach, is always crowded no matter what time and has many shops, restaurants and clubs. The accommodation has prices around 1000 – 2000 pesos per person. We recommend booking in advance especially if you are planning your trip in peak season or holiday. The beach is ok but jam-packed with people. If you are looking for the best social atmosphere and enjoy the beach until dawn we recommend Pinjalo Resort or Boracay Haven Resort.
Station 3: Tranquility and good price
Perhaps for being the furthest point to station 1, is area is more relaxed and affordable for those looking for a quiet weekend at the best price. The beach is not that wide but is clean, calm and not crowded. There is variety in the accomodation with lower prices. Ideal for backpackers, we even found a room for 250 pesos per person. Isolated from the hustle and bustle of the other stations it is a quiet place with more nature.
We will not hesitate to repeat stay in Casa Pilar Beach Resort, spacious and clean rooms, in first-line of the beach with a beautiful swimming pool. If you are looking for something more “authentic” and really economic you can stay in a bamboo hut at Boracay Huts.
The station one stands out for its beauty and quality although it requires a higher budget. The station two offers the best entertainment, restaurants and nightlife, although it is rather crowded by tourists. The station three, our favourite which we recommend, has the best price and allows you to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere on the beach away from the hustle and bustle.
It is noteworthy that wherever you stay you can always access to any beach or station. You can do so by foot if you like to walk along the beach, or take a tricycle, you will find them in the parallel main street for less than 50 pesos . Book now your favorite accommodation and enjoy a superb holiday on this dreams island..
