I got through the 1st 3 then realized I had never been to Boracay, no replacement needed.

I don't see Sicogon Island or Isla Gigantes on the list.

We just spent the past week going to those and I even brought my motorcycle on a boat to Sicogon. It was kind of hilarious watching them try to load and unload the thing.

All not mentioned are covered by 120. White Beach.

Or 184 Black Beach, 185 Grey Beach and 186 Pebbles Beach which will be included in Ver. 2.0

Any list showing suggested beaches has to have the source carefully considered.  I suspect a lot of the lists are created by the Department of Tourism, which has a bureaucracy which my end up excluding some resorts.  I’ve been to several white sand beaches which had no resort or facilities.  It was bring your own lunch sort of trip.  Not a DOT approved beach.

Even some of the beach resorts along the national highway in western Leyte are definitely not ideal as a resort.  There may be a place to buy some refreshments nearby, there is a beach, but basically it is just a series of bamboo shacks typically used for a birthday gathering or such.  The beach is dirty and the water almost certainly filthy. 

The more popular resorts in my area are the fresh water resorts, which are near a beach, but use fresh water in pools rather than the rocky and dirty beach.

Some of my family attend school in Visayas state university which has its own beach.  I used to walk along the beach as a morning exercise routine.  One area I had to walk around was where the raw sewage from the campus was drained into the sea.  However, the beach is bragged about by the university. 

The most pleasant beach resorts I’ve experienced have always been on smaller islands a short banca ride away and had no permanent residents on the island. Basically a few caretakers who also had homes on the larger island, Leyte.
