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.
