Puka Beach, Boracay Island, Philippines

Puka Beach, Boracay Island, Philippines

Have you heard of the famous Puka shells? Well, you just found the source! Puka Beach is located on the northern tip of Boracay Island, province of Aklan. Accessible only by a tricycle ride from the main road or via boat ride.  It is far away from the busy and crowded White Beach. At some point you will find yourself enjoying the beach all to yourself!

I don't enjoy going to places during the peak season. Well, that's just my 2 cents, I enjoy places better when I'm in my element, when I can enjoy the place in my own private time.  I went to Boracay on the month of October which is their off-peak season, my birthday present to myself!Smiley   I booked an island hopping trip but they won't go to Puka Beach because of the strong waves.  But I'm stubborn, I met an adventurous mom from Manila and we decided to rent a sailboat for a day and specifically asked for Puka Beach! Oh, we so loved it!!

The sand here may not be as white as White Beach's but it has its own magic!  Well, it's white sand mixed with Puka shells!! Check out what you will find along Puka Beach's shoreline:

The locals also put some stalls to sell their shells and other stuff for the tourist. They also have a restaurant with a reasonable price!

  10. Puka Beach could be another hide-away place for moneyed/traveling fellas. The place is placid and it is far from those populated beaches in Boracay. How I wish I could visit the place. In fact, I've never been to any beaches in Boracay. The beach that I've gone to is Dakak Beach in Dapitan.

  24. Very nice photography! Not just the photos in this post but also in your other/older posts. It refreshes my eyes, tnx for that! LOL. Hope I can visit Bora, too. My bf is not a beach fanatic so we don't invade and include PI's lovely white sand beaches much. I done it before in Samal Island 15 minutes away from Davao (where I live) but not with him, I was with my friends. Lovely to meet you! Keep posting, you done so well! Wish I could reach the places you've been. Cheers!

  26. the plans to go to that enchanting island took a back seat three years ago when i found out i was pregnant with my son, but boracay is still in my bucket list + i dream of threading its lovely white shore with unshod feet, with my little man in tow. hopefully i can also drop by puka beach to stow some puka shells for my souvenirs collection ^_^

  31. I also love the beach in bora and aside from that the food. I've been there once and it has been a very fun experience. I will definitely go back there soon.

  32. Puka is wonderful. I was there in August. White Sand beach had been hit by a typhoon the week before and was about three feet short of sand. Puka, on the other hand, was untouched. I swam in it for an hour. Very hot, though, in the middle of the day. Tried the squid at the one restaurant there afterwards. Best I had while in PH. Anybody know the name of that restauraunt?

  33. Puka beach is said to be the best place to shoot an event for wedding and the likes, because of the scene - secluded and peaceful. :)
