Pristine beaches. The sand was so fine it feels like flour! The shallow parts extends up to 7-8 meters(?) from the beach, so safe for kids and non-swimmers.
Tip is to go to station 1 area if you want a more relaxed and chill vibe, better beach, and not too many tourists too.

The fine fine white sand was great to walk on. The water is very shallow for quite a bit so easy for non swimmers to enjoy. Lots of activities but sometimes the constant selling of paddle boarding, island hopping, sailing etc was too much. Very kid friendly

White Beach was very crowded and there was a lot of junk in the sand. The sand was very soft, like sugar

I had not been to Boracay for a decade.

While it was a bit more humid than I would have liked on two of the three full days we were there in November 2022, it was also sunny and very warm: ideal for swimming.

There was no seasonal blue-green algae. The water was pristine, and underfoot there are no rocks, so a rare example where one can wade in without reef shoes.

The changes over the past few years have been good. The beach is wider than it was thanks to demolition of some buildings.

The Main Road is almost completely rebuilt, apart from fairly short sections on the way to Yapak (Puka Shell) beach) that still has contractors working on a fix.

The footpaths have become better along the Main Road.

What I most liked, however, was the pure white sand that had little rubbish lying around. The other great feature is the no smoking policy.

Boracay isn't my favourite Filipino island, but it's still worth an occasional visit.

Jesus where do i start? First of all don't be fooled by the lovely pictures you see in the travel brochure or the internet. This isn't the peaceful paradise you were fooled into believing.
Be prepared to be hounded literally every 5 minutes into buying things from hats to cheap plastic sunglasses that they assure you it's a pair of real Raybans, or the free Lancers that constantly try to get you to book activities with them just so they get their cut, massage parlours that aren't even authentic, you'll be sharing a small room full of other people getting one.
Final nail in the coffin for Boracay was the nightlife, yes there's plenty of choices and many other foreigners out here partying however be prepared to be heavily hit on by many trans street workers, as soon as you stop for a few seconds you will be surrounded like your a piece of bread and them being the pigeons. That brings my review on boracay to an end however to be put off from travelling to the Philippines, its a wonderful country and many other options and places here to visit.

The island has lost its way and soul. The lack of urban planning is really telling. The overall vibe has changed. Remnants of the “rehabilitation” are still there and old habits has not changed I.e. garbage.
