White Beach Boracay: World-famous white sand

With its beautiful stretch of fine white sand, White Beach Boracay Island is definitely still a great summer destination to visit when in the Philippines. The shoreline is divided into four stations. Station 1 is housed by a number of luxurious hotel resorts and is always maintained. This portion accommodates tourists with high spending capacity. Station 2, meanwhile, accommodates tourists from different walks of life. Most restaurants, establishments, and vendors are around this area. It is also where D Talipapa is located. On the other hand, both Stations 3 and 4 are still being developed for further improvement. These stations are far from the hustle and bustle of the island. The texture of the sand is also different than the ones in Stations 1 and 2.
