“Good to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We travelled to puka beach by Tricycle and it cost us 150php booth ways but the driver sat there for an hour while we looked around to take us back into white beach. There are a number of stalls there much the same as along white beach but a little cheaper.

“Just Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I wish it would stay pristine, like a hidden paradise that's totally opposite White Beach. It could be made a little bit accessible but not totally overpopulated with establishments. That way, it could be a haven for people who aren't comfortable with the wild parties at White Beach.

“A mystic distinction of peace and joy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The beach is equally interesting as in the White Beach. Though the sand is bit coarser and less perpetual white, it has character of its own. The sand glitters on a sunny day as this composed of fragments of well-polish puka shell and other shell variety. The shoreline is considerably long with its 1.3km stretch. The water was perfectly clean and the waves were playful. We stayed so long for the day in this place just to catch a different scenery of the setting sun in this corner of Boracay island. And we were not failed. It was so beautiful and mystical.

“Much to be desired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Upon landing in this area, you will be approached by many local vendors trying to sell their goods, at which point becomes annoying. However, it's a consolation that the beach is beautiful and the water is CRYSTAL CLEAR and comfortably warm.
