Nowadays everyone who googles “the best beach in the Philippines” will get to the hundreds of pages about Boracay island. This tourist destination has become so valued by the holiday makers from all over the world not only because of its immaculate white beach and clear waters, but also because it has everything that a demanding traveler might need.
Boracay island is quite small, only 7km long and as narrow as 500m in the central part. This makes it very convenient for transportation and for amiable beach walks. It’s a paradise for jogging and mountain bike fans.
It’s also a haven for the beach lovers and swimmers: the coastline in the White Sand beach is not too shallow, not too deep, and in season the sea is calm as if it’s a pool. It’s perfect for children, because the waves are very soft and the sea bottom is harmless, no corals or sea urchins, no jelly fish or other dangerous species.

They will be happy to provide you with the best service, no matter if you are staying in other hotels or in the luxury Boracay apartments like 7Stones Boracay Suites.
