Boracay is a tiny island and getting around won't be much of a problem because if you get tired from walking, there are different modes of transportation available. With its powdery white sand and clear blue waters, White Beach, as its name implies, is the center of Boracay's tourist area. It is 4 km. long and divided into three boat stations. Station 1, is the more upmarket area where most boutique-type hotels are located and has the widest beach and sand area.
