Puka Beach is one of the better known beaches in the island of Boracay because of the unique shells that cannot be found anywhere else in the island. Located at the northern tip of Boracay, it is a very picturesque beach with its stretch of white sand, crystal clear water, and without the overly-populated number of travelers that regularly flock in droves to White Beach, Boracay’s most popular location. Local and foreign tourists come to Boracay for the 4-km long White Beach, which is famous around the world for its fine white sand and azure water. It is the perfect beach for snorkeling, diving, strolling and partying. The only downside of White Beach is that it’s never without a crowd.
From sunrise to sunset, tourists walk the stretch of White Beach enjoying the beautiful view of the Ocean on one side and checking out the shops, bars and restaurants on the other side. Compared to the other world-famous beaches in the Philippines such as El Nido in Palawan and Panglao in Bohol, Boracay is known to be a party place, with loud booming music and overflowing drinks along the powdery white sand beaches.
