  • Very clean beach with clear water. Best trip.Nice relaxing place.Just beautiful. Must see on Boracay!  more »
  • Good alternative during busy Seasons where the white beach will be packed. Still a good venue to chill under the sun and soak in the sea  more »
  • The best beach on the island. Get is not very convenient. We sailed on the boat. Beautiful, not crowded. Pure.

  • Beautiful beach but it is not recommended for children to swim without adult attention.
  • 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.
  • Stopped here on a six hour island hopping tour. A beautiful beach much less crowded than White Beach
  • Would be a great beach without all the construction. Very big resort going in right now.
  • The tranquil side of Boracay Island 👌🏽
