A stunning setting, only beach, with a back drop of tropical jungle covered hills and rocks, giving a feeling you are isolated away from civilization. Really enjoyed the perfect clear water with well over 10 meters visibility. Unbelievable sunset!!

Just an 'ok' place to be go as the waves are too strong for swimming. Rough, yellowish sand since it was developed from crashed seashells over the course of time. Nothing special about the place but it's a good spot for walking/jogging/eating/buying souvenirs. I still prefer station2 for the powdery white soft sand but it's just me. Btw, travel advisor...

The sand on the beach has shells, not like the main beach at Station1-2-3. The water is also clean.The water much deeper when you enter the water. Also a little bit chopie when we were there. Great place to spend a day from the main beach crowd. At the back of the beach, stalls selling food and drinks.

This beach is really amazing, i liked it a lot more than white beach. It is less crowded and you can have a nice fresh lunch right on the beach for cheap. It's also a great spot to take pictures and swim.

Found great shells but was far and was a little too choppy for swimming. Gets you away from white beach which is all selfy sticks😜

I have been to Puka Beach twice - Feb and Nov . The waves are a lot higher and stronger than White Beach . The sand is more grainy and there are small bits of dead corals at the edge of the sea . The place is scenic but it is not as good for swimming. I saw people have... More

Nice beach but we found it a little dangerous because it was deep with a little bit of tide running.
