The beach is very nice, nicer than station 1 2 3 but prices for drinks and stuff is so expensive. The price for fresh coconut is 200 pesos which should normally cost around 30 to 50 pesos. That's abuse already. All drinks cost 200 above for a seat.

The water in this area is clean and clear. You may swim here during your island hopping or you can also reach this thru tricycle. WARNING... i suggest not to take your lunch or snacks here. The food is too pricey and their food quality is below average. Tables and seats are uncomfortable. Imagine carinderia food/place with price comparable to... More

This beach is made up of broken shells. The sand is not so fine and water here is not so calm. This is a public beach and the recliners are available at a very exorbitant prices. With very limited variety of food and drinks which are very costly, you do not find this visit a value for money

Remote beach location only accessible by boat. Nice to relax after sailing or motorboat trip. Be careful with doing lunch there. They really overcharge you for fruit juice and parts of the rest of the menu. Picture perfect beach with white powdery sand.

Glad the commercial developpment has been prohibited here, because it is a fantastic beach with crystal clear water and no visible pollution. The water gets deep quickly, which is good for swimming and snorkeling.

This was probably the only beach I even considered getting to the water. The sad part is you have to taken there by your boat. Then all the locals are trying to gouge you for everything.

This is the best beach I've been to and I've been to many all over the world. We stopped there when we were on a private boat tour around the island. We liked it so much we took a pedi cab there the next day and spent entire day on the beach. There are small huts that serve food and... More

Check it out, play in the waves and enjoy sunset. Grab cheap beers on the way in and take a float on a unicorn.

I love Boracay, and even more loved because of this island. Puka Beach located in Yapak, amazing and so beautiful.
