visitors. A quieter alternative to the hustle and bustle on the other side of the island, Puka Beach is a 30 minute hired boat ride or a 15 minute tricycle ride from central White Beach. Visitors to the island can schedule a pick-up later in the afternoon if hiring a ride. At the east end of Puka Beach, visitors can enjoy an exotic lunch at the Puka Grande Restaurant or enjoy a treat from one of the vendors who wander the sands.

Went here as part of an island hopping tour. This beach is a great alternative if you get tired of crowded White beach.

A pretty little white sandy beach with lots of shells. We took a boat to this place at the end of our day tour and spend a good 30 minutes lying on the sands. Very good spot for tanning as it is not as crowded due to inaccessibility as compared to the other beaches on the island.

Puka Beach isn't as packed with tourists as White Beach and the waves here are gorgeous! You'll have a beautiful view of the sea and sky without boats docked at the edge of the waters and coz of the waves, it's a good place for kite boarding.

There is a secluded beach with beautiful water just next to Shangri-La Resort. I would rate the water here higher than at the White Beach but the sands here are not as fine because you can find a lot of sea shell along the beach.

A peaceful strip of white sand running along the northern coast of Boracay Island, Puka Beach is named for the shells that local craftsman incorporate into the jewellery they sell to visitors. It's also a quieter alternative to the hustle and bustle on the other side of the island.

Puka Beach is great for watersports.. lots of waves and wind so its perfect for parasailing which is what we saw a lot of when we went.. if you do pick up any of the beautiful shells that you find put them in your checked luggage. Also, bring a lunch if you're going to Puka Beach as its quite remote.
