Puka Beach Boracay is located in Baranggay Yakap at northern tip of Boracay Island. It is named Puka Beach because of the Puka shells that are found in the white sand. For the locals Puka beach is a source of income because they turn the shells into accessories such as necklaces, anklets, and other souvenir items, but For tourists Puka beach is a place of relaxation and tranquility. Unlike White Beach where it is busy and crowded, Puka Beach is quiet and peaceful. You can only hear the sound of soft and gentle waves touching the white sand, there are no structures, and there are less people.

Tips for you
I liked the beach because it is far from the hustle and bustle of the White Beach. Sand is replaced by shells here in this beach but they were not painful to step onto. The water is much deeper and the waves are bigger but it is part of the fun in swimming here. Though not advisable for kids though because of the depth but adults will surely enjoy the place. It is also a good place to find a spot where you can spend alone time on the beach as it is not crowded.
