Called the "back beach" of Boracay Island, Bulabog Beach is one-kilometer away from White Beach, and stretches 2.5 kilometers of coarse, cream sand. Unlike White Beach, Bulabog Beach is not advisable for swimming due to the presence of sea urchins and wind addicts. Rather, the beach is popular to kitesurfers and wind surfers during the Amihan Season (November to April), and also offers different surfing lessons to beginners. Otherwise, it's a good place to just grab a beer and watch adrenaline junkies wrestle with the wind. On a regular day, Bulabog Beach is grim with seaweeds and docked with fishing boats. At the northern end of the beach is a cemented road that leads to Mt. Luho Viewpoint (P120/head, take a tricycle or walk for 20mins), which offers a panoramic view of Bulabog Beach, Boracay Island, and nearby islands such as Carabao Island and Panay Island. Most importantly, Bulabog Beach is most known for hosting the annual Boracay International Funboard Cup every January or February. The cup is one of the largest kitesurfing and windsurfing races in Asia.
Ilig-iligan Beach is possibly the remotest beach in Boracay Island, and can only be accessed through motorbike, a short hike, or by chartering a tricycle (P250/hour). The beach stretches almost a kilometer of grainy, white sand, and faces a few islets. Unlike White Beach and Bulabog Beach, Ilig-iligan Beach is underdeveloped and less crowded, with only two resorts and a small restaurant. At the northern end of the beach are a forest and some rock formations. Farther off shore, visitors will find the Bat Caves with the help of a local guide (approx. P300 guide fee). Visiting the caves, however, may not be a rewarding experience. It requires a steep descent where rugged footwear is recommended. The caves reek of guano and are home to hundreds of fruit bats, flying foxes, and mosquitoes. Be sure to use insect repellant and bring a flashlight when visiting the area.
The most photographed beach in the Philippines, Boracay's White Beach is an iconic tropical marvel in Asia. The sand is as fine as talcum powder, and stretches an overwhelming four kilometers. Walking barefoot from end to end would take about 30 minutes. The beach is roughly divided into three docking stations when boats used to drop off tourists along the shore. Station 3 is home to budget travelers and dormitories. Station 2 is the shopping center of the island, and is the most crowded. Station 1 is the high end and least crowded section of the beach. Farther away from Station 1, following the cemented pathway along the coastline will take visitors to Diniwid Beach. The most commercialized beach in the Philippines, White Beach swarms with tourists and establishments, from bars and restaurants, hotels and resorts, to dive shops and souvenir shops. This beach is also the gateway to Boracay's numerous water activities, the best of which include island hopping, paraw sailing, and sunset cruising. Major events in Boracay are hosted on this beach. These include the annual Ati-Atihan Festival (second Sunday of January), Boracay International Dragon Boat Festival (April or May), Halloween Party, New Year's Eve Party, and the monthly three-day Full Moon Party.
