Eating at the White Beach!

When a local and a tourist think of Boracay, they first associate the island with the infamous White Beach. These days, the White Beach is known for being a tourist hotspot - filled with stores, restaurants, bars, and people.

On our last night in Boracay, we decided to check out this infamous White Beach to see what it was all about. The resort shuttled us to D Mall, one of the main shopping strip areas along the commercialized beach. Walking past the stores and restaurants, we finally hit the beach. The place is definitely picturesque especially with this huge wide strip of white sand, but you could feel the density of people who had been walking all along the beach throughout the day. Adding to the crowd of tourists were also peddlers constantly coming up to us trying to sell whatever they had.

We walked along the beach and by the beachfront restaurants looking for a place to eat. Along the way, we saw some fire dancers, which we had heard was another attraction here at the White Beach. They were performing in the middle of the beach and in front of The Sand Bar (I can't find a website for it, but it's basically right along the beach and it's hard to miss especially during the fire dance performance). Because of the performers and the enticing menu, we decided to eat at this restaurant/bar/lounge. What a great decision! The atmosphere was modern, we had the front row seats to the beach, and we were eating grilled foods - which is perfect for beach cuisine.

Here's a video of one of the fire dancers performances:
