Puka Beach is a serene destination in Boracay that boasts a white-sand shore that contains bits of coral. Going on for 800 meters, it is also one of the longest beaches on the island.
While the bits of coral make its sand slightly more coarse than those of the White Beach, this spot makes up for it with its almost unspoiled natural beauty. Puka Beach is lined with tall coconut trees as well, and has a lush tropical forest just past its stunning shore.
It is also home to Boracay's flying foxes, which are a species of fruit bats. From the shore, you can spot these animals flying around at night when they are most active.
Puka Beach is situated in the Yapak district on the northern tip of Boracay Island. It sits about 9 KM from Boracay Jetty Port. From the port, you can take a car straight to the beach or ride a tricycle. You can also book a guided tour that includes a visit to this attraction.
Puka Beach can be visited all year round. The best time to visit this attraction is from November to April when the weather is generally cooler and there are lower chances of rainfall. To enjoy the beach’s idyllic atmosphere, it is also recommended to visit in the early mornings or around sunset when there are fewer crowds.
