Boracay island has been going downhill of late, attracting mass tourism. But most people don't ever get off white beach. Hire a motor bike and drive to Yapak beach. You'll find an empty stretch of the most lovely beach on earth. You'll have it all...More

Good alternative during busy Seasons where the white beach will be packed. Still a good venue to chill under the sun and soak in the sea

You could see right to the bottom, loved it. There was a nice little restaurant that we got to eat in very cool. I wouldn't want to spend much more than an hour, as there's not a lot to do.
