We stopped here on a tour around the island. It’s a much quieter style of beach. It’s more expensive than White beach but it would be great for a day trip.

Very nice and calm place with a little ruff beach and nothing like white beach. But this is much calmer and not at all as many visitors and you have the jungle right on the beach! Very nice beach for a day trip!

The sand is very fine you can even walk without slippers but the things/foods being sold here are very pricy. We just visited it because it was included in the package of island hopping. Just experienced it for day tour. Beautiful beach.

I have always liked going here when I am in Boracay. Back in the 90's this used to be so virginal... not anymore. Right now they have one or two bars there but the place still looks so peaceful :)

The entrance of puka beach is very crowded and small shores.. in order to enjoy most of the beach you need to walk few meters to the left side to enjoy its beauty

The beach is exactly on the opposite side from the Jetty port, you have to travel the entire length of the island, about 7 o 8 km. Surely not by walk!
