    Swim at Station 3

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 2, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although the Main Bars and Hotels are in Boat Station 1 area of white beach and most of the action and bustle of boracay is, When you want a less crowded area and more privacy for beach activities like swimming, snorkelling, sun tan, etc. Station 3 is the best since it is farthest by the congested Station 1. You can walk the 800 meter distance to station 3 via the imrpovised beach pathway or hire a tricycle at one of the side streets lying perpendicular to white beach (cost is 30 pesos a person) and it takes you to the nearest perpendicular side street to Boat Station 3. either way, you can expect more privacy!

    Sweet Jesus, you are in Boracay! Of course you should swim! Enjoy the crystal clear blue water and the fine sand. Enjoy the sun (put sun screen first) and the sea wind. Enjoy the view. Enjoy the crowd. Enjoy the atmosphere.

    Did i say the word "enjoy" too much? Thought so...

    let's swim! washed ashore?

    Swim Until the Sun Goes Down...

    One of my favorite activities in Boracay - SUNSET VIEWING! I swim or just sit at the white sand while waiting for that magic moment when the sun changes its color into golden yellow, spreading orange into the sky and slowly glides off the horizon. No wonder visitors troop to the beach and end their day with this activity.

    Swim with your Best Friend

    A sight I find so amusing...this dog happily swimming with his masters. He was like any other human being there....he would swim and leave the waters for awhile to sit or lie down at the white sand and then back to the waters again. I have also seen other dogs doing that, not just this one here.

    enjoy the beach, dogie

    I really missed this island paradise that coming here for the second time felt just like my first time in this place. The excitement never stopped until I got here. Most of my time here I spent swimming on clear waters, walking/sitting on its powdery white sand, chasing/viewing sunset at the end of the day and taking pictures. I always cherish my days in Bora, those worry-free days, days where I was able to spend just lazing around....

    A Walk In Paradise

    by nimato Updated Apr 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    White Beach is a beautiful stretch of truly very fine white sand (talcum-like) on the west coast of the island. Along this four kilometer stretch of beauty is where all the fun and action is. Everything is here from cozy accomodations to interesting bars, shops and water sports. It could have been a walk in paradise without all these.

    WOW! Admiring a lit sand castle at night Notice the awesome sand?

    There are so many things to do in Boracay, swimming being on the top of the list. The beaches are very ideal for children coz it is gently sloping meaning no sudden depths. No stones or rocks that can hurt your feet. Just fine white sand that is nice to walk barefooted. The water is clear and pristine. Just about everything you're looking for in a beach you can find in Boracay.
    Aside from swimming, you can do diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, sea kayaking, snokelling, island hopping, horseback riding as well as tennis and having that relaxing massage by the sea. Everything is just perfect for that Paradise Tropical Island Getaway!

    Swim and acquire a tan

    by asianbelle Updated Feb 3, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boracay gained prominence as a tourist destination because of its famed white sand. Not surprisingly, the 3.5km long beach has been called White Beach and is the most popular place in the island. It faces the West giving visitors a good view of the sunset. This is also where most hotels, bars, and restos are located.

    The fine, flour-like sand of White Beach beckons people to swim and sunbathe, which are just two of the many activities that can be done in the island. Although the entire length of White Beach is ideal for swimming, I prefer BS1. It is in the northern end with a wide beach and not crowded. There are also less boats docked compared with BS2 and BS3.

    Swim All Around

    Boat tripping is one of a fun way to discover of the amazing waters there in Boracay. The boatman will take you and your friends to different little swimming pots where you can hike a bit and do some snorkeling. Or if you like just to walk the whole area you can do that and if ever you tired walking and you feel so hot already, just take a break and then if after taking break go to the sea. Sea is waiting for you.

    Boracay beach is perfect for swimming, the place for sunbathing and watersports.
    This is also considered to be walkers paradise because of wide, narrow to kilometers long white beach.
