Puka beach, named after a type of seashell abundant in the area, is a long stretch of beach at the northern part of Boracay Island.
The sand here is coarser, compared to the talcum-fine white sand of the main white beach. There are fewer tourists here so you won’t be competing for space when basking under the sun.
Near the shore of Puka beach is a row of souvenir shops with shells, lamps and other native handicrafts. There are also good restaurants further up the beach that serve fresh seafood dishes such as crabs in tamarind sauce, prawns in garlic and grilled fish. As for activities, you can rent dune buggies or all-terrain vehicles here.
