In this post, we will shed light to the others beaches of Boracay that you ought to visit. For your reference and to get you a better idea of what beholds each beach, we will compare them to the popular White Beach, which most are already familiar with.

Puka Beach

Imagine White Beach when resorts and commercial establishments did not flock the beachfront. This is what Puka Beach looks like. The beach has souvenir shops at the entrance, which is a ride away from the White Beach. However, it is the unadulterated feel of the beach that will make your visit here worthwhile.

Ilig-Iligan Beach

If you’re big on snorkeling, then this beach is for you! Located at the island’s northeastern side, the beach can be reached via island hopping trip or walking from the shore. Aside from snorkeling in its crystal clear waters, the beach offers a great spot for people who wish to do picnic.

Diniwid Beach

This beach is the more peaceful and less crowded version of the White Beach. For those who simply want to get away from the noise and clutter of their normal lives, Diniwid Beach is a great place to just kick back and enjoy the natural beauty of the tropics.

Bulabog Beach

The sand here in Bulabog Beach isn’t as fine or powdery compare to the White Beach. However, it compensates for the wealth of water activities available there like parasailing, kiteboarding, flying fish rides, and banana boat riding.
