Beyond White Beach’s world-renowned shorelines, sunsets, and festivities, Boracay offers generous spaces of peace and tranquility for those who prefer to enjoy seaside stillness and serenity.
One such spot is Diniwid Beach, located just beyond White Beach’s Station 1 and which may be accessed through a small carved footpath by the edge of a cliff, or by taking a short tricycle ride through the back access road. Upon approaching this space, you would hardly believe that you are just a stone’s throw away from Boracay’s party scene. Diniwid is decidedly ultra-chill, offering unadulterated views of the sea and sky while inviting you to do… absolutely nothing.
If you’re on a tight budget but looking for something warm and comforting to start the day, try some taho sold by the roadside vendors just before you enter the beach from the back road. If, however, you’re feeling a bit more indulgent or even celebratory, try one of the champagne brunches from a nearby resort and have your well-deserved sip of the good life.
If you’re willing to go a bit further head on to Puka Beach, Boracay’s next-best-known beach, named for the abundance of puka shells that you will find on its shores. (Warning: the sand isn’t as powder-fine, though!) Located around 5 km from Boracay’s Station 3 and accessible via tricycle, Puka Beach has deep, clear waters that are perfect for a quiet swim but which is best for experienced swimmers.
How ever you want to find peace and quiet while in Boracay, you won’t have to travel far to find it.
