We discovered this beach thanks to island hopping and went there again by tuk tuk (200 pesos one way from station 2) and it really worth it!! Very beautiful beach, with few people.

Puka Beach is beautiful. Make no mistake about it. The beach is pristine and there are far fewer people here than on White Beach. It was the last stop of the island hopping tour booked via Allan B Fun Tour. What marred the experience was the aggressive vendors. The minute you hop off the paraw, they are there pushing you...

in the middle of nowhere, this beach served us some great seafood cooked to perfection. Loved the ambience and the fact that there were no people around. Not as calm and smooth as Station1, the water was choppy and deep

Far from the maddening crowds at station 1,2 and 3. Located on the north western side of Boracay, the view from the beach is simply majestic. It was like a scene from a post card picture of a beach coming alive right before our eyes. Puka beach was the second stop of our round the island adventure. It was really... More

If you go to Boracay, you must stop here! Words can't describe the views! Go at low tide and you can explore the smaller beaches off to the right from the entrance, just don't get stuck there when the tide comes back in!

Great beach, quiet and peaceful. Far from the crowds and tourists at Station, 1,2, and 3. Nice lunch on the beach at one of the few restaurants, good quality food and great value.

Boracay like in the old days, white sand, blue water. Great for snorkeling and BBQ on the beach at sunset.

The sand may not be as fine as White beach's..but if you enjoy peace, quiet and clean, Kuta is for you. We did not have any food with us but we asked one for an impromptu lunch picnic from a nearby food stall. For 700 pesos, you get grilled pork, some veggies, chicken, drinks, fruits and dessert. Best 700 my... More

enjoyed the day trip here with my family. the white sand is so blindingly white....the water reflects much of the sun's rays - paradise :) the food is excellent except for the fried chicken that my son ordered, too salty and bland. crabs were great and the marlin too. i left that part of boracay very happy and content.
