Bolabog Beach and White Beach are opposite of each other. At the narrowest point these beaches are not even 500 meters apart. Bolabog facing toward east, White Beach facing toward west. However, it seems, as if both beaches were located on two different islands.

White Beach (today)
Because the White Beach lies lee side, there is hardly to feel any wind today. The south part of the beach is quiet free from algeas now. A lot of algeas are still in the middle part just at the height of the Regency Resort. But here at the south it is almost a perfect beach day, and look at these colors!
Unexpected strong winds blew yesterday (~ 25 knots) and today (~ 25 – 19 knots). Yesterday “sunny side down” today “sunny side up!” It’s still cool for this time of the year. Air 26°, water not over 22°C. With 9m² I was occasionally overpowered. My friend was using 5m² having much fun. Average 10 kites in the water. Tide at 11 am at a comfortable 1.1m rising to 1.5 til 3 pm. Incredible white, flat wave bases inside the reef.
The main season for kiteboarding in Boracay starts with the North-East Monsoon. The wind then is called Amihan. The location of the schools are at Bolabog Beach. Bolabog Beach is just opposite of White Beach. It is the second largest beach in Boracay but maybe only one third of the size of White Beach.
Thirteen kite-schools, sometimes closely spaced, operate at that beach. There are also three spots for windsurfing.
