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 :)

This beach is totally different from main white sand beaches of Boracay. Less crowded and more relaxing place.

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. 😉

Very nice beach. Been there for island hopping. Although just a short stay but we did enjoy it. Not so much activities can be found there as far as i can guess. Good spot for pictures

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!
