A very beautiful beach! Clear water and fine white sands! It's far if you stay at station 3. But is a must go beach if you are there. Local do their business by providing shelter, free life jacket and float. But you have to buy their drink. It's expensive but is a great way for them to earn an income,... More

We went there but the waves were huge so we didn't get to swim. Just enjoy the beautiful beach (weather permitting) and eat somewhere else. A word of warning, never eat at any of the restaurants in Puka Beach, it'll be a highway robbery. A coconut drink costs Php200!!! You can just imagine the bill if you eat a full... More

Puka beach is located north of the boracay island. I noticed that the sea on that side is a little rough, so be careful when swimming out there. Sand is a little grainy compared to the powdery sand of boracay island in the west side.

We enjoyed this beach and visited a couple of times by boat and also by tuk tuk. We thought this was a nicer beach than white beach as its not just so busy and white beach had lots of weed in the water when we visited. Beds and hades were free as long as you bought a drink, most visitors... More

This beach is rather secluded. Nice if you want some quiet time away from the crowd at White Beach. The sand is a bit rougher and the wave a bit stronger here. And it could get a bit chilly if its a windy day.

Since there are no resort yet in this beach in the island of Boracay, the area is still serene and unexploited. Unfortunately there's already an on-going development which turn this paradise into a chaotic like the white beach. Already commercialize with local vendors that rent beach chair and sold snack and cold drinks. Not really for swimming for kids because... More

If you like some peace, silence and you hate crowds, no better palace for you than Puka beach situated in the north of the Boracay island. It is little windy and the sea is colder but it grants you perfect place to relax.

Sand is less fine than White Beach as its called Puka, but this island in Boracay reminds us how White Beach used to be, serene, peaceful with less people. No moss here during Summer unlike White Beach.
