  • The water is deep and the waves were a little tricky playing three grand children. Unlike the white beach sand, the beach is rough, so why not feel in Boracay? And if you drink at the Bar Beach line being a bad one until all freebies or drinks from the default 500 pesos or so.

  • 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 experien...  more »
  • We took a tricycle here from white beach for 150 pesos and the ride is fun through the traffic and winding streets of the island. Upon arrival head left and if you wish choose a vendor who is selling ...  more »

  • I first visited Puka in 2008 and was charmed by the place. Visiting today, the place has taken the tourist scalping route with lots of stalls selling overpriced food and drink. Getting a sunbed means having to buy a mango shake for 350 pesos! Just behind the beach a mega development is ongoing, complete with 3 large drain pipes overhanging the beach. As is standard in Boracay, everything feels dilapidated, the road leading here is like the moon surface, the little access path between the stalls muddy. No public facilities or even a dustbin.
  • Would be a great beach without all the construction. Very big resort going in right now.
  • The tranquil side of Boracay Island 👌🏽
  • Nice view and super clean beach. I will definitely go back to this lovely place. Perfect for the couple barkadas and family.
  • When we do the island hopping, @ first I thought that it belongs from another island, if you lack of curiosity you will never know that this amazing beach is still part of great boracay island....a very beautiful beach indeed...

Where to stay in Boracay

Boracay holds a daunting number of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, especially given its size. Just along the main central beach, choose between dozens of four- and five-star resorts, as well as mid-range hotels and guesthouses, all of which come at reasonable rates. For a romantic, tropical atmosphere, opt to stay in one of the wooden huts and bungalows that face the beach or circle grassy central compounds. The peak tourism season lasts from November to May, when prices rise and availability shrinks, so you'll want to book ahead of time.
