  • Really nice beach if you go a bit further away from the touristy stalls and make shift cafes. There is a slope to the shore, which with a few good waves can make body surfing pretty fun. I don't know ...  more »
  • A lovely beach in Boracay, me, white sand, sparkling blue water. Not far from the Shangri-La Hotel, a lot of water and a towel. The beach has stalls selling souvenirs and drinks, delicious fruit shakes. Getting to the beach using tuktuks.

  • Beautiful beach but it is not recommended for children to swim without adult attention.
  • Stopped here on a six hour island hopping tour. A beautiful beach much less crowded than White Beach
  • 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 👌🏽
