  • Have been multiple times, but it does not fail to amaze me. the sand is fine, and the color of the water is quite hard to explain. it is a combination of green, turquoise, blue, and others! too hard t...  more »
  • Beautiful tropical beach with palm trees. Around noon the excursion boats come to the beach, but not too much hustle and bustle. Getting there with Tuk-nous takes about half an hour from the "center" (d-mall).

  • Nice beach to go to if you want a less crowded beach than the white sand beach in Boracay. Some small shells and coral along the beach. Shops at the centre of the beach if you need to eat or drink Beach was quite windy and waves are strong and there are no life guards when we went.
  • Good beach but beware there are no toilets since its a bit isolated. For toilest you need to pay 20peso per person. Tides are strong and beach is a bit rough.You can visit through island hopping tour to explore the northern Boracay.
  • Awesome place but gotta take a boat to get there.
  • We visited here via island hopping tour package. The beach is nice, less crowded compared to the main Boracay beach. The difference of Puka Beach to Boracay beach is that the sand here is less finer and you can feel some roughness at your feet due to the bits of seashells along the shoreline. The water current here is also more aggressive so you can see waves and the water is deaper even if you are just near the shore. The only good thing here is that it is more quiet place.
  • When I was visiting Boracay last year May, I heard from local guide of this beach. I love white sand each al lot but I prefer this beach more so visited twice while I was staying that time. This place is also called Yapak beach. The beach sand was made of course Puka shell and so unique texture. Also this beach is sitting northern part of island so view is wide open.
