A quick surfing jaunt with the guys.

Talcum-powder white sand. Just ignore the horde.
Golden beach, fresh seafood, and cool waters makes up for the 6-hour boat ride, I think.
I always go to the beach. This one is one of my favorites with it's wide beach and tempestuous waters.
I woke up one February morning with a text message from my sister saying she wants to go to a beach. Any beach.
So, 15 minutes later, we're booked for a weekend in Crystal Beach. I didn't even have to get up from my bed. Oh, the wonders of technology.

Borawan Island is a play on Boracay and Palawan, as homage for the sand of the former and the rock formations of the latter. No offense to the person who named it (or even to the people who make their living there), but they only got the rock formations right. Boracay sands it isn't, so we dubbed it "Batawan" instead (as in, sands of Batangas and rock formations of Palawan).
