Fantastic Beach

Island hopping in Boracay won't be complete without going to Puka Beach. It has the view and the water is crystal clear.

Ridiculously overpriced prices of drinks with free use of recliner beds. Beach is less crowded and more relaxing than the White Beach.

This is one of the last remaining undeveloped/commercialized beaches in Boracay. It's much more peaceful and a perfect spot of beach fun. The sun here can get a little more intense due to the all day exposure on the northern end of the island. I can imagine the sun up and sun down would be beautiful. Excellent snorkel area to... More

I can only give my impressions from a brief stop as part of island hopping. We stopped briefly during our tour. There appeared to only be stalls on the beach but I imagine accommodation is nearby and tucked away. No doubt with a monopoly on food and drink and sunbeds they can charge what they like so I am not... More

Came up here for a day away from white beach for somewhere different. Definately a lot quieter and less developed. We were expecting an empty beach. But there are Lots of vendors selling drinks to use their sun chairs which fill most of the beach. We bought 2 coconuts at 250 peso each ( expensive) but made full use of... More

I don't understand why it's very expensive here. It's as if the business of the people is to put beach beds and overcharge you for it.

Great place and view for sun bathing not too crowdy compare in station 1&2. Big place to play sands with your friends and family. Stores there are a bit pricey so better bring your own drinks and food though you have to buy some there so u could stay in their benches. Ideal for couples looking for romantic place. Never...

This beach is a must- see and must-visit place for those who are planning to go to Boracay. It is accesible by car or small boat from stations 1 thru 3. It was one of the stops during our island-hopping adventure. Water was crystal clear! Sand was white. We had the beach to ourselves when we were there. It was... More
