Really windy day, but such a beautiful beach. The water here is beautiful, can't wait to come back. Took a trike here and a motor bike back to white beach.

This place is way better than white beach. If you look for something nice, relaxing and authentic go there!

beautiful and quiet, clean beach with amazing cobalt colored ocean. we came there by a tricycle ~ 20mins from D'mall. so excited with empty beach rather than an always- busy White beach. there several stuff that local people built up like dry-bought heart shape, PUKA letters, shell suspended from a frame, simple but nature that you could be addicted to...

If you visit Boracay take a trip to puka beach. It cost me 150peso each way on a tricycle. Its much quieter than white beach but a really nice place to spend a day

Nice beach, empty in the mornings then the boat loads of tourists descend. There's a load of little restaurants with basic food that's way too expensive because of their captive audience. Nice for a visit but don't plan to stay long.

Finally there are food concessions along Yapak Beach (aka Puka Beach). This used tp be a hidden treasure far from the maddening crowda of Boracay's main White Beach. A short banca or parae ride takes you to the western tip of the island that reveals a pristine whote beach with carshing waves and perfect blue water. Electricity just came to... More

We visited this beach when had a boat tour, this beach looks very pretty and very cool even from a distance. Many people complain about the crowded beaches but my answer is that go early then you won't have any complain. But this beach is never crowded cause it is accessible with either a boat or tricycle, There are food... More

Puka beach is a good isolated place to lounge around for a lazy afternoon. We went to puka board and bar...jessica was courteous enough to host us. We enjoyed a good meal of shrimp and noodles, drank beer, even enjoyed a great massage! To top it off, the sunset was beautiful - the stuff of dreams. A must visit for... More
