Local food are great but salty. For those who can't live without chilli, bring your own grind chilli powder. My favourite food are Kare Kare, Sisig and Pancit Canton :)

“Fun beach for those who like waves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We went to this beach twice during our week in Boracay. We paid P150 for a motorbike taxi to take us there from station 3. The ride is quite scenic - it was fun to see some non-tourist related life going on (especially kids coming out of school).
If the day is overcast or rainy, it can be a bit of a wait to get out.
Waves can be rough - small children must exercise caution.
Rockier than other Boracay beaches. Waves can be a bit strong at times, especially if it's windy. But if you are an average swimmer like me you should be fine.
It's really a beautiful beach. Very quiet in general. There are a couple of places to eat and some shacks to buy drinks at the entrance (beach drink vendors are super overpriced). Cleaner than White Beach (stations 1-2) for sure.

“Worth the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

It's worth the tricycle trip to check out this beautiful stretch of beach. Snorkeling was a bust, but the beach is worth seeing.

The air so clean and the beach so clean to walk and play with the waves. Place not too crowded in the morning, the best time to visit.

“The best beach on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The famous beaches on the island almost are full of the seaweed. That's really terrible...
If you agree with me that you are here for enjoy the wonderful sea view with beautiful , gorgeous beach, pukka beach is the right answer for you.

如果只是想玩水上遊戲的話,不用到長灘。
