This other beach is strategically located in a small cove that cannot be accessed by everybody. It is a 200-meter stretch of white sand that is exclusively for the enjoyment of its guests. What makes it so exclusive can be found in its available accommodations. The resorts and hotels here are expensive. There are about 600,000 foreign travelers visiting Boracay each year and the first spot they often see is White Beach, where they shall find three boat stations. Ask any Boracay native which station has the most luxurious hotels, restaurants, and establishments overall and he will surely point you the first station’s way. Diniwid Beach, of course, is right at the tip of Station 1.
The upscale beach resorts in this place include Artista Boracay, Nami Boracay, Microtel, Boracay Spider House and Boracay Westcove. Because there are fewer guests here than in White Beach, you can expect to enjoy a wider portion of the white sand beach all to yourself. Despite this, it is still easy to get to it on board one of the island’s many tricycles. The tricycle, a motorized tricycle-taxi, is the island’s main tool of transport. As you arrive in Boracay aboard an outrigger boat from the main island of Aklan, all you need to do is take a tricycle ride to Diniwid. How much money shall you shell out for the ride? A mere Php20 (USD0.45). Never has the actual journey to exclusivity been so cheap, one might say. [Read more…]
