Very nice quite beach in the other side of the Island. Did not swim as the waves looks scary but the water is crystal clear.

Puka Beach is a very wavy beach, not suitable for snorkelling if you are sea-sick person.. But the seawater are very clear!!! It was beautiful!

It is located at the top of the island so you'll get some wind and the beach sand isn't nearly as powdery as that along White Beach. However, the large number of "Puka" beach decorations up and down the beach made it lovely for us due to the photo opportunities. Not to be missed!

Absolutely stunning, albeit the sand is much rougher than White Beach. Water is extremely clean, fewer boats around so it's better to swim around there. Fewer people too, makes it all the more relaxing as compared to White Beach (which had algae along the shores when I visited there)

It's a really white beach, never mind the rocky sands, since the breathtaking beauty cancels everything else out. We experienced strong waves when we got there, which was fun. It's not a place to dine but one to relax in and to enjoy the picturesque views and the beach. oh, and to take awesome photos. :D

We liked the white sand and the scenery. It makes you think that you are the only one the lives there...

Been here in the past and still best place to take a swim. Especially with children. Remains clean even with vendors around. Not a lot of people come here to swim. Still have time to relax and enjoy the sea and sun.

Local people hanging out, crystal clear waters, rustic on-beach restaurant with basic but yummy food, beautiful sunsets. My new favourite place!
