I believe it's natural. And white sanded beaches are normal all over the world, and Philippines has lots of white sanded beaches scattered throughout the whole country not only in Boracay. I'd like to visit Boracay someday with my hubby. Any suggestions and information about it's expenses? Thanks!

The white sand beaches on Boracay are natural. The main reason for it being white is because it came from white coral reefs and crushed shells in the surrounding area. It can then be said that where there's white sand beaches, there are also great coral reefs around. Simple logic. Although, lately, business people have made their own man-made white sand beaches. What happened is that they have a beachfront that has black or dark sand. They go to a nearby island that has white sand, steal from them and dump it on there resort. This is happening now in Camotes Island, an islet in Cebu.
