TripAdvisor reviewers place White Beach, Boracay, in world’s top 10

Boracay Island’s famous White Beach has proved popular among reviewers who have named it as being one of the 10 best anywhere in the world.

Boracay’s White Beach has taken its place among a top 10 of the world’s finest, based on thousands of TripAdvisor reviews.

Taking the top spot for 2015 is Sancho Bay in Brazil. This is despite the beach needing a boat ride, a hike and then a swim to reach. It named as the best beach in the world by 99 per cent of all TripAdvisor users who made the effort to get there.
