Owner description: The second largest beach on Boracay, this popular destination is also called Puka Shell Beach after the prevalent white seashells.
Reviewed 13 April 2018 via mobile

I wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the main beach (of Boracay), that’s why I decided to go here. It only costed me 150 pesos One-way chartered tricycle from station 3. The travel time is approximately 20mins to get there. It’s worth a visit, because the beach is still like a real and untouched paradise. No big resorts and restaurants. Totally quiet and one can still find a little privacy here.
At the tricycle station, there are several shops selling souvenirs and refreshing fruit shakes. To go back to the main beach, one can take the tricycle for the same amount.
I definitely recommend this beach area to enjoy a different character and the original boracay.

This is a lovely beach but can get very crowded. For this reason wasn’t my favourite. Lots of vendors to buy stuff here

Many tourist stands at entrance, lots of areas with sun beds. If you want a secluded area you’ll find it by walking north and there the beach is beautiful. Might have more surf there on certain days as we did in late February. Sand is nice made from finely cracked shells. Can still find nice small ones.
The tricycle back could cost the double but one should always negotiate!
Good luck if you can still enjoy Boracay and hopefully it’ll be in better shape after the closure.
But hardly any construction around this place so it still remains quite pretty! But you have to get away from the crowds.

Such a beautiful beach which we love to visit when we go to Boracay. We stopped over during a island hopping tour and it hasn’t changed. It still has white sand and blue waters and is not as busy as white beach.
