Not as powdery as what Boracay Sand is but what makes it unique is the Puka shells all over the beach which makes it smooth to your feet. There are also stores and snack bar in the area but super expensive :)

I Still fall inlove everytime i visit Puka Beach. Though there are lot of boats parked at the shore, leaving the visitors small space to enjoy the water. Food offered at the island are very expensive, make sure to bargain. 😉

This is an excellent place to swim as the water is very crystal clear. Tho it gets deeper quickly as soon as you step in the water.

The beach is exactly on the opposite side from the Jetty port, you have to travel the entire length of the island, about 7 o 8 km. Surely not by walk!
