I guess this is not really a question, just a word of advise. I have seen so many sites describing this island as the ultimate paradise that I want to share my experience. It is a beautiful island, but by far not the best. The sand is white, okay, but it not talcum powder, it is a coraline beach and there are many corals in the beach. The water is gorgeous but it is cold. Although it is not very touristic, it cannot be said that the beach is nicer than Boracay. The best beach I have seen in Philippines for me has been Malacapuya island, in Coron, the whitest sand I have seen in South East Asia. Bantayan is far from that.
