It is windy in October but my previous visits to this place in summer were fantastic. Nice place for a quiet stroll and once I snorkelled in this area and it was a fantastic experience. However, you need to be an experienced swimmer as the water deepens abruptly. Hire a tricycle (the mode of transport in the island) to go... More

The Puka beach was quieter and more relaxed, away from the bustling crowd at the main stations. This place is also great for souvenir shopping. They had unique items for sale and the prices are not bad. The sand may not be as fine as the ones in the white beach but that was a welcome change. I would have... More

Secluded beach with a few tourists. I was lucky that the last 2 days i was there, it was nice & sunny. The water was clear, the sand was smooth. There were some shells, but not too bad, it wasn't pokey or anything. It was a great place to tan and swim in the water. There's some souvenir shops and... More

We went here in July 2013 during rainy season. Sorry...this review is 1 1/2 years later but people should know the truth during this time of season. Yes, this island is beautiful and worth seeing but not during rainy season. When we got there the beaches were surrounded with trash and it was really sad to see. I didn't see... More

Lovely, relaxing beach, more quiet than other beaches in town, no bar around, only some souvenir venders. The water is crystal clear and the sand is fine and white, along the beach is coconut trees bring we near to the nature. We spent an hour in here, quite enough.

Boracay is perhaps one of my best vacation spots ever. The people are incredibly friendly, the prices are ridiculously inexpensive. Most natives speak English and those that speak only Tagalog are still friendly and do their best to help out. Be sure to visit the beach at the village at sunset. Many people gather there and I have some of... More

If you want privacy this place is for you. The sand in this area is corse and the ocean on this section of the island is not safe. Major rip tide.

Went here as a shelter for the storm while doing hopping tour around the island. Beach full of shell which cause you a lot of troubles to walk on. P80/$2 for a buko (coconut).
