We've been there in Feb and we ended up going right before the rain got us.. Or thats what we thought! We didnt have the chance to swim because we were told that the current was really strong that day and it wasnt safe to swim. Never the less its still the most beautiful and peacefull beach around there! True... More

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.
