Did not enjoy our 30 minutes stay at Puka Beach which was part of the Island Hopping we made. Limited time staying in that place and the drinks and beach bed is expensive if you want to take a sit or rest.

The beach is beautiful and close. I think it is worth the journey to see white sand without so many people. The beach huts arn't especially comfortable, so pack sun shade if you want to relax on the beach.

It has been 5-6 years since we returned and the place has so much changed! There are now cabanas to stay and have a great way to enjoy the beach and have cold shake or cold beer drinks as you lay out in the sun!!

Puka Beach is an alternative to the famous long white beach, it's not that powdery sand but it's not polluted unlike the white beach. Easy to reach just ride a tricycle and pay around P150 one way for like 6 passengers can fit in 1 tricycle. Specially now that the white beach has algae all over. Try and experience Puka... More

Take a taxi bike to get here. Plenty of recliners and umbrellas, walk left if you want something quieter Lots of empty sand and more relaxing than white sands beach so if you are in Boracay for a few days make the effort to get here. Take a taxi tuktuk.

Good beach at the north side... You can go in motorbike or sharing in tuk tuk... It is also included in island hopping tour... Place is 20 minutes drive from central... Good beach for swimming... But restaurants are expensive... They give free bench and towel but food is very expensive and not that tasty....

The foods and drinks are very expensive!! Its either you order a drink for Php 200 or you have to pay Php 200 so you could stay in their beach chairs!! A 12oz size of drinks costs Php 50?? Though the place is beautiful and quiet however when you want to relax you have to spend money first!! 👎

I prefer Diniwid beach over this one. This beach was a bit crowded and noisy. You don't need to pay for the beach beds but the drinks prices are double.

Yapak beach is a lovely white sand beach a short Tuk Tuk drive awat from White Beach, maybe 150-200 pesos (less if you share) depending on which station you leave from or return. The beach is sandy and mostly clean, with no real algae problem. There are numerous bars offering loungers for fairly high prices for the lounger for free... More
