Alice Beach on Bantayan Island has a nice collection of resorts to choose from. However, in general, they are not as elaborate as other beach resorts in Bali, Thailand, or Boracay for instance. Cold water is common and so too are power outages. To get the best available selection, I would suggest using one of the three following sites:
Alice beach has a nice laid back vibe – one where you can grab a drink and listen to the waves come in. Some of the resorts arrange to have bands play during peak periods. Don’t expect loud music and full on partying until the wee hours of the morning. There are also a few bars in the nearby Town of Santa Fe to check out as well.
Most of the resorts on Alice Beach have their own restaurant. If they don’t have what you want, simply arrange for transport to the nearby town of Santa Fe.
Many tourists that go to Bantayan Island arrange day tours to Virgin Island where there is some coral to check out. During high tide, swimming at Alice Beach is nice. During low tide, you will have to walk out quite far in order to reach a suitable depth for swimming.
