Beautiful, white sand beach on Boracay. We visited on a boat trip and found it pretty crowded when we first arrived there but then most of the boats left in the late afternoon and we much preferred it then.

A beach which I would surely want to visit again. Clean waters and beaches. Even though we wore slippers or shoes, the beach were well maintained to my surprise. We had refreshing and cooling pineapple juice for 200 pesos. Would surely want to visit the...More

This is a nearby beach in Boracay. There are two ways to go here: first, you can join the island hopping tour and this is the first stop; second, you can hire a tricycle from white beach to this place. The water is green and...More

Very clear waters, sand is not as stony as years back. Water is not as salty as the one in the main beach of boracay, however, it’s more difficult to walk along the shore than the main beach. But overall, good experience

Very quiet aka visitor mostly coming by boat. Less crowded, less shops. As per the name, the sand mix with shell so a little bit hard to walk. Wave is big so be careful when you walk in the beach since the sand-floor can suddenly...More

Get a tryke and get here away from the annoying hustle and bustle of the White Beach crowds. This is a paradise-like beach. Be careful because the shaded spaces are very limited and occupied by local hustlers who will place their own mats on them...More

We arrived at Puka beach after lunch and it was very hot, good thing there are stores where you can buy something to drink and you can use their "banig" while enjoying the view of beach, the sand and the sun. It was perfect.

This is a nice beach but be aware of the tourist trap. Unless you don’t mind paying for drinks to use the islanders mats. But I will say they are nice and friendly. And the beach is beautiful.

The sand is not fine as the front beach but if you want to experience other side of boracay this place is a must to see. Just a tip bring your hydration with you because there is no convenience store near in the place.
