Nice beach.

This beach on north end of Boracay island. Nice beach but it appeared to be more of touristy place with beach chairs & items to eat.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded main beaches of Boracay, Puka Shell Beach is situated in the Northern tip of the island. Very relaxing!

You can party all you want at the white beach but if you want a silent and a non crowded beach where you can simply sit on the shore and take time to relax, puka beach is the place to be.

This was the best place we visited during our island hopping tour in Boracay. The feel of isolation is there, apart from the occasional island hoppers such as us. The beach is beautiful, the sand feels good, and the views are amazing. Not minding the high price of snacks, I would love to find an accommodation along this beach for... More

Go early 5-6am. Fine sand and clear waters. The current is quite strong when we went there so I recommend not to go deeper (for non-swimmers.

Secluded but spacious, this one is worth a visit if you'd like a change from the bath-like waters of White Beach.

Very large and long beach, when we were there in was very windy and the sea was rough, so we did not swim in there. But the water color is amazing. Probably during the wet season it is more enjoyable. The sand is not that white and soft as in white beach. You will find also a lot of bamboo... More

Sailboat is the nice way of getting there. Water seems to be cleaner and warmer. Highly recommend, for a day. Bring your own towels and miscellaneous, vendors do charge more money for drinks, but you get the use of there chairs. Can get very busy, we found best time is in morning.

Puka Beach is cool. It is like a flea market by the sea. I bought some really nice souvenirs. Best prices for pearls. It is really a beach made of sea shells. Water clear and clean. Average water temp high 70's. In November anyways. The locals have tents and beach chairs to rent. Food and cold drink good. My wife... More
