Pros - further away from White beach which is over crowded, it's rather peaceful here. Cons - sand isn't as fine as white beach. Not a very long beach.

It's a beautiful beach but if you book an island hopping tour this is one of the regular stops for "lunch" even if you say you've already eaten. The restaurant and souvenirs are too expensive for what you get. I felt ripped off and ready to leave so we didn't look for shells on the beach or explore beyond the... More

Anyhow, I... More

Perfect place in boracay to take pictures, no photobombers :) it's like you're in your own private beach. The place is so quiet and relaxing, I do yoga or meditation here if only... maybe I will next time I visit. The sand is the best I ever stepped on.

If you miss the Puka beach in your island hopping tour... it is also accessible by tricycle. Costs you 25 pesos each per person... :-) Include it in your itinerary...you will not regret it.

if you want to enjoy your privacy, puka beach is the best place for you. It's a 10-minute trycicle drive from the center of the island. there are good restaurants such as puka grande and the crystal clear water of the beach is really tempting. One more good thing is that irritating sea plants don't grow on the beach despite... More

This was part of our snorkeling tour. There is nothing here it is just a beach with lots of shells, a few vendors and a man selling ice creams. As part of the tour it was a nice stop off bring water it is thirsty work.

The beach is very beautiful. Still quiet. Not many people visit there. White sand stretching along the coast. Blue seawater. There are some small restaurant that sells grilled fresh seafood. Never miss a visit to this beach puka if you're in Boracay. Only by paying 150peso with local transportation from central barocay. Day bed for all day hangout only pay... More
