Diniwid Boracay Beach, a less crowded strip

Beautiful isn't it? But with quite few people than White Beach.

If you’ve been to Boracay many times, White Beach can be just too crowded, especially that summer season is here. Or if you’re like me who shuns the crowd in beaches, I would prefer going to Punta Bunga or Puka. But there’s another good alternative with less people.

Diniwid Boracay Beach is just a tricycle ride away. It has less people, great sand and clear waters too. It has shorter strip but nevertheless perfect for swimming. However, note that a portion is rocky, especially at the Microtel area. But you can still bathe at the area with the widest portion of white sand.

Most of the people here are foreigners: North Asians and Europeans who prefer the quite scene. There are bars and cantinas but evenings are quieter.

Would you want to swim here?

Diniwid Beach is very accessible via tricycle or habalhabal (single motors). From D’Mall, just flag a tricycle and ask to bring you to Diniwid. Some drivers will refuse. Just be patient. Another one will agree. Rates usually is P15-P20 during daytimes. P100 if you hire the entire vehicle. Same with the single motors.

From the area where tricycles stop, just walk towards the beach. It will take you less than a minute.
